The weight gain looks like he is on some kind of medication - Dr Adebiyi
In an exclusive chat with the doctor who made the observation that went viral, he opined that Zinoleesky might on some medication or nursing an ailment based on how he presented in the video.
"Based on my observation after looking at the picture posted online, his face and hands look swollen, and so I can’t categorically say it’s natural based on my clinical experience. The weight gain looks like he’s on some kind of medication, which could either be steroids or centrally-acting antipsychotic medications. Medications like that usually cause weight gain, and that’s usually how they present."
The doctor also added that the singer might probably be battling an ailment.
In his words:
"The presentation also looks like someone who has renal failure (I didn't say he has renal failure in any way, so don’t quote me wrong, please, but then, I have not seen him or examined him to be sure of what exactly we are all seeing, and the picture could also be photoshopped. So it’s just an observation, and I don't mean any offence in any way. In terms of differentiating his weight gain from normal weight gain, that’s not something I can really explain because it’s more of a physical presentation. I’m not being sentimental; my observation is based on professional experience and nothing more."
Zinoleesky removes Marlian music from his bio on social media
Legit.ng earlier reported that the singer got tongues wagging after removing Naira Marley’s record label name, Marlian from his Instagram biography.
Zinoleesky, after yanking off “Marlian Music” from his page, replaced it with what seems to be his own record label “Zinonymous Sound."
The move suggested his exit from Naira Marley's label at the time.
