More than anything, Zinoleesky’s self-explanatory song titles have propped his extraordinary hit-making abilities in the industry. From Kilofeshe to Naira Marley and Ma Pariwo, the Marlian Label stand-out has managed to give credence to his singles with just titles that do more than enough in preparing listeners for what’s to come. Zinoleesky’s latest, Gone Far, is no different than its predecessors. Lugging just a couple of years experience as his claim to fame, ‘Gone Far’ does justice in declaring the singer’s superstar abilities which is a thing of his transcendent delivery style and a voice that grips as much as accompanying instrumentals, do.
Fresh off his collaboration with Busiswa on the remix of hit, Kilofeshe, Zinoleesky is still in his Gqom loving phase. Over a sprightly bass beat produced by frequent collaborator, Timi Jay, he tells of his rise to the top, hinting at the very obvious and now cliche bumpy journey to fame, rife with doubt and disdain. For Zinoleesky however, his sturdiness isn’t solely native to his music but a shared feature that’s prominent in his relationship with family and friends, as noted in Gone Far.
A storyteller with ears for mood-elevating music as evidenced in Ma Pariwo, Zinoleesky delivering fun and feelings on Gone Far, comes as no surprise.
