Watch Zinoleesky in the music video for “MaPariwo”

Last year, Marlian Music’s Zinoleesky emerged as one of the exciting new voices from Nigeria’s street music scene, and his single, “Popo” confidently foreshadowed his imminent rise to mainstream acclaim. He has since gone on to make a name for himself through his impressive performance on the Naira Marley-assisted “Caro”, which gave us a good idea of his playful melodies, charming songwriting and the honeyed vocals that complete the package.

His newly released single, “MaPariwo” shows how he’s adjusting to his post-“Caro” acclaim, as he offers detailed instructions to his lover to keep their relationship lowkey; “Ma Pariwo/ I don’t want your neighbors to know my name.” Produced by Tripsss, the feet-tapping instrumentals for “MaPariwo” set a groovy backdrop for Zinoleesky’s repurposing of Wale Thomson’s classic, “Lalale Friday”.

Zinoleesky’s narration of his sexual affair infuses some English and pidgin English lyrics with the Yoruba lyrics from the original song and it’s as NSFW as you could have predicted. The music video directed by WC Films captures the raunchy imagery of Zinoleesky’s lyrics where we see him being amorous with a dancer in a room.

Watch the video for “MaPariwo” below.
