Zinoleesky is the hot boy in the Marlian camp headed by Naira Marley at the moment, with an EP and a string of hits to his name, he’s definitely enjoying his ride as one of the hottest young acts out of Africa.
Check out 10 essential Zinoleesky songs you should listen to today;
1. “Ma Pariwo”
Ma Pariwo was released during the lockdown in 2020, and it was one of his biggest songs till date. It ruled the charts and airwaves for quite a while, equally enjoying massive radio play across Africa.
Kilofeshe is one of Zinoleesky’s 2021 Amapiano sample records. Needless to say, Zinoleesky is one of the artists who has milked out more than enough hits from South Africa’s amapiano and needs to move on to other things.
3. “Gone Far”
Gone Far was also released in 2021, it is a record that chronicles Zinoleesky’s journey from the trenches up till the level that he is right now. He delivers a groovy, boisterous track that ruled clubs and parties for sometime in the country.
Rocking is the most recent song from the young pop star. Still jumping on the Amapiano vibe to create one more hit with Niphkeyz on the deck. Rocking pays homage to Fuji legend, Pasuma sampling one of his old songs from the early 2000s. Rocking was an instant hit both on the streets and on the charts.
5. “Naira Marley”
Naira Marley is a tributary track released in 2021. Zinoleesky released this track in homage to his label boss and industry colleague Naira Marley who brought him out of the slums of Agege and gave him a platform to shine.
Blessings is another dope jam from Zinoleesky and Niphkeyz, a frequent collaborator. This is a motivational record that targets young people in the chase of the good life. Zinoleesky lays his insecurities and fear of the future to bare in this record and creates a very relatable experience for his listeners.
On this 2020 track, Zinoleesky brings in his label boss Naira Marley to assist with a perfectly suited delivery. This song tells the story of their experiences with Caro, a particularly nefarious gold digger.
8. “Kilofeshe Remix”
This record is a product of the success of Kilofeshe, and the Marlian artist brings in Mayorkun and Busiswa for an assist, although the remix was targeted at the South African market, it didn’t really make as much of an impact as the original record.
9. “Won Wa Mi”
Won Wa Mi is a single off Zinoleesky’s debut EP, Chrome Eccentric. It’s a really dope and feel good record that impacted his career positively at the time it dropped.
10. “Nitori E”
This is another dope single off the CHROME (Eccentric) EP of 2020. Nitori E talks about Zion’s love for a love interest and his willingness to cross the ocean or do anything required of him to win her love.
