How it all Started…

In the Nigerian street pop music scene, a heated rivalry has emerged between Seyi Vibez and Zinoleesky, as the two artists engage in a public exchange of insults. The conflict began when Seyi Vibez unveiled a sneak peek of his upcoming track ‘Amdallah’ on his social media platform. Shortly after, Zinoleesky took to the internet to tease his fans with a snippet of his song, hinting at the possibility of disrupting the music industry.

In a video, Zinoleesky said,

“Just waking up, what’s happening? My people, should I scatter everywhere? Should I post this snippet? Let me post this snippet.”

Although Zinoleesky did not explicitly mention anyone’s name in the video, Seyi Vibez interpreted it as a veiled attack directed at him, given that he had just released his music snippet.

Consequently, Seyi Vibez retaliated by expressing his indifference towards Zinoleesky’s snippet release, emphasizing that he did not view himself as competing with anyone. Additionally, Seyi Vibez boasted about his success as an independent artist, highlighting that he does not rely on a record label for his achievements in the music industry.

Seyi Vibez said,

“I didn’t say y’all shouldn’t drop Snippet, I’ve got a lot of songs, no competition. You can even drop for your Record Label. I’m independent” Seyi Vibez replied in a video response.

While one might have expected the drama to end there, Zinoleesky recently took a swipe at a particular musician during an Instagram live session. He claimed that this musician’s song would never top the music charts, regardless of what he did.

This remark infuriated Seyi Vibez, prompting him to take to his Instagram Stories to refer to Zinoleesky, who is signed to Marlian Music, as a “label slave.” Seyi Vibez further stated that he would not be surprised if Zinoleesky decided to sell his current house and purchase a new one solely because of him.

Seyi Vibez wrote in a series of Insta Story posts, saying:

“Now you fit say you wan sell your house go buy another one because of me!! Lmao!”

“Your number 1 songs got you an apartment!”

“That’s why you are angry!”

He continued,

“If them dey talk about the artiste wey you sabi pass for this kabal, put my name aside label slave. Anybody wey wish me bad soon God go take the person happiness away“

 “Finally” – Unfollows Each Other On Instagram

As expected, Zinoleesky and Seyi Vibez unfollow each other on Instagram due to the beef. This move further escalated tensions between the two artists and their respective fan bases.

The once-friendly relationship between Zinoleesky and Seyi Vibez has seemingly turned sour, as they have now unfollowed each other on Instagram, likely due to the ongoing beef between them.

This could be a sign of the long-standing tension between the two artists finally reaching their boiling point.
