Singer Portable has slammed two show promoters in Italy over an alleged ill-treatment.

In a statement shared on Instagram on Sunday, the Zazu star said the promoters came to pick him up late, after spending two hours at the airport and they had no adequate hotel bookings for him and his team.

He also claimed he was extorted of the sum of €2000 and on getting closer to the venue, “there had been shooting, stabbing and arson at the venue.”

The statement read in parts: “We forced the driver to stop the car before getting to the dangerous scene. Unknowingly for us that they got their thugs around the corner and they collected the car key and demanded €2,000 which my manager gave to them to enable us to leave the unsafe scene. Jeffizy collected the money and Blessing Olise knows about it.

“Italy promoters are not real promoters but scammers and lame people. Prostitutes ladies claiming to be promoters and uncivilized men that took a boats(sic) to Europe claiming to be a promoter.

“I warned(sic) every Nigerian artist to abstain from any so-called Nigerian Italy-based promoters.”
