Little wonder if the awaited Songbird colourfully soars and swing proudly in styles on the wings of his career…. it’s been long coming and it had always been in him. Sure, thumbs up to him for those of us that know the songbird. SWEET MEMORIES!
Needless suspense on the other hands for those still to know the Songbird. The masquerade is an Imo state born Nigerian multi-talented Afro/ Hip-Pop Rapper who resides in Lagos State. Eziuka Charles Nonye, who is stage-named by friends and fans as “Zealious” and who branded him a goal getter for real.
Eziuka Charles Nonye a.k.a Zealious pumped into the Nigerian Music industry years back with a bombshell hit track he titled: “NORM“. The magic firm of Zealious reeves newspapers and magazine headlines, television and radio programmes. Birthed not only by “NORM” as a seasoned song piece, but the conscious choice made by Zealious to take and build his journey and career step upon step through education to grabbing first, his first Degree in Business Management before formally embracing music as his God’s given career. The touch down of that combination breed a difference that beams ZEALIOUS’s career and awarded him an enviable height among his equal in the same industry; soon everyone was on the lookout for that new breed, “ZEALIOUS” with the mantra Music with a difference. Zealious, who took a sabbatical from the music industry for a while, has suddenly bounced back and is ready to re-dominate the atmosphere of the Nigerian entertainment industry at large. He recently performed alongside Ngowari at the yuletide celebration fiesta organized by the Lagos State government tagged One Lagos Fiesta.

Zealious !!! you are looking really good. But, people will be surprised and happy to know that you are back. Where have you been and what have been happening with your music career?
Thank you for the complements. I have really been around. It was an intentional and personal decision to pile low for some time and cook some new ‘soups’ for everyone that believe in my sons and career. In short a lot should be happening around me soon as I promise my fans and lovers of good music to stay tune and wait for the release of my next effort which promises to be banger.
What have you been cooking and specifically what should your fans, well-wishers and everyone be expecting from you?
They should expect a lot from me. I am ready to WALKTALL on Music Wings to stardom. I have been through the furnace, paying my dues, tithe and offerings to come out as the gold that I am. I have been cooking and brewing a complete album to be released soon. Expect my invitation and download links soon. Zealious is truly here to stay and not ready to disappear, never again.
Zealious, please confirm rumors reaching us that you are releasing a banger single before the album?
Actually it is not rumor, it is true. I will be releasing this lovely single that I feature Kitay (MTN Project Fame’s 2nd runner-up ). The track is Titled: All The Way. It was co-produced by Chimbalin, mixed and mastered by C-Kay-C. I specially love this song. For real, It is a banger.
Any web link or special avenues to get ALL THE WAY once released?
Keep following ZEALIOUS NATION on social media wings, follow CITYPRIDE and NEWS BANGER websites and you would not be left out.
Any word of advice to up and coming artistes? I would just tell them to stay focused and never be discouraged. It pays to sacrifice for the top.
