Nigerian artist, Zinoleesky is the cover star on this weekend’s edition of Africa Now Radio with Cuppy on Apple Music.
He talks about his debut EP ‘Chrome,’ being from Agege, Lagos – home to arguably the best bread in Nigeria, learning from Naira Marley, and the concept behind the ‘Kilofeshe’ music video.
Zinoleesky on being signed to Naira Marley’s label, Marlian Records
“Being signed to Marlian Music is, trust me, an experience like no other. Because Naira Marley doesn’t take us an artist, this is like his brother, or his brother like his family. So, you know it’s a family thing, he’s a very intellectual person that looks at all angles, spiritually every angle left, morally. I think I’m in a perfect place, perfect place, and I’m very happy I made that decision.”

Zinoleesky on what inspired debut EP ‘Chrome’ and its visuals
Zinoleesky: “There’s this game I play, GTA.”
Cuppy: “Yeah, Grand Theft Auto? I admittedly play that…”
Zinoleesky: “There’s a car in the game that has this chrome color I like. I was in love with that car.”
