Nigeria is home to many renowned musicians, both on the local and international scene. The country's artistry when it comes to music has remained a mystery, as there's always a regular discovery and signing up of talented artists in different genres by record labels.
One of such artists on our radar is Zinolessky. Having been recently discovered and is now making waves, Naijauto will be profiling this young artist, from his journey to becoming a singer to his released songs which will be featured under the best of Zinoleesky mixtape.
1. Who is Zinoleesky?
Zinoleesky, whose real name is Oniyide Azeez, is a fast-rising Nigerian singer and songwriter who is currently signed to Marlian Music, owned by controversial music artist Naira Marley.
The fast-rising singer had his primary education at Lively Kiddies Nursery and Primary School Agege, Lagos State. He then moved to Boys Secondary School Agege, where he obtained his Senior Secondary School Certificate.
While growing up, Zinoleesky was surrounded by friends who love music just the way he did. He was reported to have attended the same secondary school with Ibradosky and Lil Frosh who was previously signed to Davido's record label but was later dropped over domestic violence issue with his girlfriend. Zinoleesky, together with his friends, always had music battles where they challenged one another to a freestyle.

The singer began to be noticed when he posted a rap video on Instagram. Kizz Daniel saw the video, liked it, and started following Zinoleesky on the video-sharing app. This singular act was a motivation to Zinoleesky, who went ahead to put in more effort in producing amazing songs.
And of course, his hard work paid off as Naira Marley spotted him too. At the beginning of 2019, Zinoleesky, alongside three other artists were signed up to Marlian Music by Naira Marley. The four music artists were introduced on stage during Marlians Fest which took place on 30th December 2019.
Having joined Marlian Music, Zinoleesky released his first album titled "Chrome" on 13 December 2020. It is a 6-track EP that includes his earlier released songs like "Kilofeshe" and "Mapariwo”. At present, the singer is said to be worth $35,000.
