The fast-rising Afrobeats chanter, Zinoleesky, shared his latest offering titled ‘Rocking’ accompanied by a Nollywood inspired music video. The twenty-six-year-old musician is one of the torchbearers from the famed Marlian Music, Naira Marley’s music entity. ‘Rocking’ is his debut single of 2022, and it features production from Nigerian producer Niphkeys. Correspondingly, the Amapiano driven track stirs a sick groove, thanks to the raving log drums on top of the syncopated percussions. Not to mention the pulsing whistles adding the cherry on top.

‘Rocking’, the music video, is centred around a video club in the depths of a Lagos urban setting. A wide array of characters visit the shop to rent some video cassettes. This whole picture is reminiscent of the late 90s and the early 2000s. Zinoleesky plays the shop attendant who falls in ‘lust’ with one of the customers. Coupled with the music, the reel portrays a young Zinoleesky trying to woo a young and beautiful lady. It’s pretty refreshing to watch.
