In the world of street-pop music, two talented artistes, Seyi Vibez and Zinoleesky, have sparked a social media frenzy with their indirect jabs at each other.
Known for expanding the sonic scope of street pop, alongside artistes like Barry Jhay and Balloranking under the tag ‘Afro-Adura’, Seyi Vibez and Zinoleesky have become the centre of attention.
The shade exchange began when Seyi Vibez dropped two new songs, ‘Hat-Trick’ and ‘Amdallah’, in the early hours of the day.
Shortly after, Zinoleesky took to his Instagram story, asking his followers if he should post a music snippet while hinting at possible chaos.
“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 mention any names, and there is no clear indication that his post was directed at Seyi Vibez, it sparked a response from the latter.
Seyi Vibez, in his own Instagram story, indirectly threw shade at Zinoleesky, clarifying that he never discouraged any artiste from dropping their music snippets.
He further emphasized his independence and suggested that Zinoleesky should continue releasing music under his record label.
“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 said in the video.

The subtle back-and-forth between the two artistes has ignited debates among netizens, with discussions centred on who is the better artiste.
Some users have advised Seyi Vibez to remain calm since it is uncertain if Zinoleesky’s shade was directed at him.
As fans eagerly await further developments, it remains to be seen if this shade battle will escalate or fizzle out, and how it might impact the relationship between these rising stars of street-pop music.
