Musician Portable has alleged that organisers of the Bola Tinubu inauguration concert wanted to shortchange him by offering N5 million instead of N10 million.
The controversial singer born Habeeb Okikiola explained in an Instagram video on Friday that he refused to perform at the Renewed Hope Concert for that reason.
Among those who thrilled attendees on Thursday night at the MKO Abiola Stadium in Abuja were Pasuma, Asake, Wande Coal, and KCee. The concert is part of activities to herald the inauguration of President-elect Bola Tinubu, and Vice President-elect Kashim Shettima.
Portable said in his caption for the Instagram video, “ZAzuu them dõn rip me oooh. Na me sing Akoi TINUBU ✍🏻 Eja Loni Ibu 💰 Give what belongs to ZAZUU to ZAZUU.”
In one of the videos, Portable said, “Na me sing Akoi Tinubu o. No be Obi una dey vote for? Tinubu enter now those useless people una go dey perform there, no be me promote Tinubu?
“Na so them call my manager o. Say them want make I come perform for Abuja. Na 10 million them drop o, but na five million go reach Portable hand. Na so I no gree, I tear the paper. I delete the number, you dey whine Jesus? Na hin no make me perform for Abuja o.”
The artiste recently dragged his colleague Spyro on Instagram for refusing to collaborate with him on a song.
