Apple Music’s Africa Now Radio With Cuppy This Sunday With Zinoleesky

Nigerian artist Zinoleesky is this week’s cover star and joins Cuppy via FaceTime on Apple Music 1 to talk about his debut EP ‘Chrome.’ Zinoleesky tells Cuppy about 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 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.”

Zinoleesky on releasing music with Naira Marley

“We have some projects going on, going on, going on, and then I’m on my own.”

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.”
