Show Promoter Cancels Zinoleesky US Tour Over Death Of MohBad




September 19, (THEWILL) – The US tour of Oniyide Azeez, aka Zinoleesky, a Marlian Music signee, has been cancelled by the show promoter.

“We regret to announce that the forthcoming 2023 US SHOW has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances, which are beyond our control. We are indeed so sorry, we apologise 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 the event unfolds. Thanks for your understanding,” the promoter wrote in a statement.

The tour cancellation may not be unconnected to the ongoing controversy Zinoleesky is enmeshed in; with respect to the death of Ilerioluwa Aloba, aka Mohbad.


Mohbad, a former label mate of Zinoleesky, died last Tuesday, and was buried on Wednesday.

The deceased singer was in a faceoff with Azeez Fashola, aka Naira Marley, his former label boss, months before his death.

In October 2022, Mohbad alleged an assault by the record label’s head honcho.

He also claimed members of Marlian’s music label assaulted him for requesting a new manager.

Naira Marley, in his response, alleged Mohbad was high when making the assault allegation.
Mohbad would later terminate his contract with Marlian Records.

In January, Zinoleesky had made it clear that Mohbad was his guy and not his friend.

“Yeah Mohbad is my guy, but I can’t say he’s my friend like that. He is my friend but people I call my friend are people that are very close to me”, he had said.

“Not just people that I know. Not just that we’re together. We can know each other and not be friends. That doesn’t mean we are enemies. I don’t think I have friends in the industry. I really don’t. I know a lot of people in the industry and we are not friends. Most of my friends are outside of the music industry.”
