Habeeb Okikiola, better known by his stage name Portable, has criticized musicians who performed at Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s pre-inauguration.
The fast growing singer explained why he missed the event in a video that is already going viral online.
He claimed that the concert’s organizers had contacted him and had brazenly declined their offer to pay him only N5 million.
According to Portable, the organizers received N10 million to pay performers, but they decreased his share.
Blowing heated, Portable lamented the fact that he was the only musician supporting Tinubu but was unable to perform.
“Don’t worry, that’s how you guys start oooo. I supported Tinubu when you guys were supporting Obi. Now Tinubu entered, and those useless people are performing at his concert. Am I not the one who promoted Tinubu? They called my manager that I should come and perform in Abuja, they said they dropped N10 million for the artiste’s performance but N5 million would only get to my hands. I turned it down, tore the paper, and deleted their number. No be me be star. That’s why I didn’t perform in Abuja for Tinubu. You are going to celebrate Tinubu, do you love Tinubu? Did those musicians post Tinubu? Did the vote for Tinubu”.
