Controversial musician, Habeeb ”Portable” Okikiola has taken sides with Afrobeats singer, Seun Kuti in the online brawl with Peter Okoye.
Portable took to his Instagram page on Wednesday and lambasted the member of PSquare music group for ‘insulting Fela’s family.’
Peter aka Mr P and Seun Kuti have been trading words on social media over the past 24 hours and it started with the son of Fela describing presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi as an opportunist.
The comment angered Mr P who called him out and dragged the Kuti family into the fray including his late father, Fela and nephew, Made.
In a video he shared on his Instagram page, Portable criticised Peter, saying his own family is still alive but is out of the limelight.
He said; “I go by name, portable of Africa, Anikuleti, Young Fela. Ogun kill you, You say wetin. I hear say you dey insult Fela Kuti, You wey be say you and your family still dey alive and una no still blow”.

Meanwhile, Seun had earlier called Peter a talentless artiste who had a failed solo career.
He said; “Not only are you talentless, you are a gimmick. Tried to go solo without your ‘packaging’ what happened to your career?”
“Just like your candidate can’t decide his party? Today APGA TMR PMP NEXT TMR LP, you sef can’t decide if you want to be a twin duo or solo artiste. Where is your Grammy nomination bro? Dem no dey give that one to people Wey dey thief songs.”
The trash-taking continued with Okoye taking a swipe at Seun’s musical career while wondering if he ever had a Grammy nomination.
Mr P wrote; “Dude, I understand your frustration. But realize that the sky is big enough for all birds to fly. @burnaboy and other great artistes have climbed on our great Fela’s ladder to blow. Comport your self and pray to your god. My God has blessed my destiny & i’ll 4ever remain thankful.
I’ll surely keep you in my prayers. Learn from your nephew @Madekuti cos he is well guided and clean. Grammy nomination na yardstick to measure good music? Abeg which yeye song them use nominate you wey we know? Grammy nominee wey still dey live for trenches! I dey sure say na still your papa house you stay!. “Stop deceiving yourself bro! Nobody rate you for this industry!”
