The CEO of Faithia Entertainment Showbiz, a prominent figure in the U.S. showbiz industry, is pressuring Zinoleesky, an artist signed to Marlian Records, to repay the money that was transferred to his account for a show that ultimately did not take place.
In September 2023, two American show promoters, Faithia Entertainment Showbiz and Vibesland Entertainment, made the decision to cancel Zinoleesky’s upcoming tours.
This decision was influenced by the passing of Nigerian singer Mohbad and the accusation that Naira Marley, Zinoleesky’s former record label boss, and Sam Larry, his associate, were involved in his death.
Faithia Entertainment Showbiz took to Instagram to announce the cancellation of Zinoleesky’s tour due to unforeseen circumstances, promising to communicate a new date in the future.
In a recent conversation with Samklef, the show promoter revealed the aftermath of the canceled U.S. concert and the financial setback he has experienced.
Since the disappointing turn of events, Faithia confessed that he has been feeling unsettled and it has affected his business.
The show promoter revealed that his initial attempts to get in touch with Zinoleesky’s manager, Gabyarow, to discuss refunds were as fruitless as talking to a brick wall because she refused to pick up his calls.
He went on to explain that before the concert’s cancellation, Zinoleesky and his manager had gone off the rails by jetting off to Puerto Rico with a visa meant for his U.S. concert trip, essentially breaching their contract.
When he finally managed to contact Zinoleesky’s manager, she delivered a hard “no” on refunds, proposing to postpone the U.S. show until the heat around Mohbad’s situation cooled off.
But the resolute U.S. show promoter stood his ground, insisting on refunds. He argued that Zinoleesky and other Marlian artists had been blacklisted by fans and Nigerians due to their alleged involvement in the circumstances surrounding Mohbad’s tragic demise.
