Nigerian street-hop artiste, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, once made claims of abandonment regarding leading industry acts, Wizkid, Davido and Olamide.

Speaking in a video which surfaced on social media, he claimed that Olamide has refused to reply to his messages whle Big Wiz and OBO have failed to fulfil their promise of collaborating with him.

Portable said the Afrobeats stars promised him verses on different songs but till date he is yet to get anything. The Zazuu star lamented bitterly about how all he’s done was in a bid to help himself, and despite that, he uses what he has to help others, but they do not appreciate his gestures.

He said: “Here I am still looking for someone to sign me, to help me, I’m using what I have to assist you all, but you don’t appreciate it.

“Since Olamide helped me, have you seen me going to beg Olamide? If I want to message Olamide, I do so without stressing him because he’s my helper, and I don’t want him to dislike me.

“If you pester your helper, they’ll dislike you. Not every day I beg Olamide (Baddo). I don’t beg for food money. He didn’t buy me a car; I bought it myself.

“How many celebrities have posted me on their pages? Am I not the one promoting myself? I messaged Olamide to help me with a remix, but he didn’t help me again. Davido promised to do a song with me, but I didn’t see him. Wizkid promised me, and I didn’t see anything.”
