Nigerian singer Zinoleesky has become entangled in the ongoing controversy surrounding fellow artist Mohbad’s death.
According to recent reports, organizers have canceled Zinoleesky’s upcoming tour of the United States in the aftermath of the Mohbad tragedy.
Zinoleesky had been set to embark on a U.S. tour to perform for his American fans. However, following the uproar over the circumstances around Mohbad’s demise, the tour was abruptly scrapped by its organizers.
No official reason was provided for the last-minute cancellation. But speculation has emerged connecting the move to the swirling accusations and debates ignited by Mohbad’s untimely passing.
While Zinoleesky himself has not been directly implicated in the specific allegations regarding Mohbad, it appears tour organizers preemptively decided to cancel rather than wade into the volatile situation.
For now, Zinoleesky’s anticipated stateside performances remain on hold. The young Afropop star unfortunately finds his budding career caught up in the tumultuous currents caused by the loss of a fellow Nigerian artist.
Note that Zinoleesky is signed to Marlian Music, a record label owned by Naira Marley, who has faced accusations of involvement in the tragic incident.
The aftermath of Mohbad’s tragic passing has been chaotic but even worse, the repercussions for those suspected to be involved are now being felt on an international scale.
The latest twist in this ongoing saga involves US show promoters who have made a decision regarding Marlian Music signee, Zinoleesky.
They took to their social handles to reveal that Zinolesky’s tour will no longer hold.
Now Marlain Records are to refund a total of $45,000 approximately N45,000,000 (45M) to the US show promoters.
We regret to announce that the forthcoming 2023 US SHOW has been cancelled due to unforseen circumstance which is beyond our control.
We are indeed so sorry, we apologize to all our American Sisters & Brothers who have tickets.
We really do love you and we shall try to make it up, new dates will be communicated as event unfolds.”
