It’s been almost a year since Nigerian rapper, Sinzu was released from a United States jail where he served a two year sentence for credit card fraud. A lot of excitement hit the Nigerian music community on his release and most especially the Nigerian hip hop community, which was particularly happy that one of the most gifted rappers ever to bless the scene was not locked up anymore.
Perhaps not being behind those bars anymore might get him to serve them some more bars on his release. However, it’s been a rather slow come back from the one who gave the classic “African American”, “ Money long and Da rip off mixtapes”, as well as classic bangers like Under G and Carolina (featuring Davido) and of course the unforgettable comical gift that was “E Don dey madt”.
One can intuitively assume that perhaps Sinzu took out time to study how much the game had changed since he was away and also tried to make plans for how he’d approach his musical creation.
On his release, it was announced by Davido that Sinzu had been signed to his label DMW which further increased the anticipation from fans and critics alike. Though his come back has been slow, Sinzu has not been totally quiet. He has made some notable appearances on tracks and also released a couple of tracks of his own.
1. Breezy – Dremo Ft. Sinzu
Sinzu featured on the track titled breezy, off Dremo’s codename EP and delivered a smooth verse on the trap record, showing his fans that he still had the “sauce”. Watch a clip of him rapping his verse below.

2. Like To Do – Kay Rhoma Ft. Sinzu
Kay Rhoma also tapped Sinzu for a verse on this trap tune titled Like to do. Sinzu finessed this as well.
3. Sinzu – Able God zumix
Sinzu also jumped on the instrumental of the hit track “Able God “ by chinko ekun ft Lil Kesh and zlatan. Listen here
4. Sinzu – Zu Levu
Zu Levu is sinzu’s new track released a few days back. Sounds tight but I’m sure his fans would want more hit for his own personal releases. Listen to zu levu produced by Bils.
Coupled with the sad fact that Sinzu had been away for a couple years, his last project industreet which he dropped prior to his jail time, seemed to leave out his Nigerian audience and he didn’t seem to care much at the time.
We hope that this does not affect his reception negatively and also that his career can still attain more highs moving ahead. We look forward to more fire from Sinzu in 2019. What do you think about Zu Levu though?
