The show promoter, who sat down for a chat with reality TV star, Doyin on her podcast, disclosed that he sued Portable at some point but later dropped the case after his father pleaded on his behalf.

Meanwhile, in another news…

CorrectNG recalls that last year, Habeeb Okikiola also known as Portable terminated the contract of his road manager, Adeseyan ‘Stelliza’ Oluwatosin, over alleged financial misappropriation.

The controversial artiste’s legal team released a statement via his Instagram page, wherein it was stated that Portable and the female manager, who is now deceased, have parted ways.

He accused Stelliza of unethical industry practices, which he claimed would pose a risk to his business interests and the reputation of his record label, Zeh Nation.

The statement read; “This public notice serves as an official statement on the termination of all business relationships between the CEO of Zeh Nation, Okikiola Badmus [Portable] and Ms. Adeseyan Adedoyin Oluwatosin a.k.a Stelliza in her capacity as the road manager to Portable and Zeh Nation.

“This decision comes as a result of Stelliza’s financial misappropriations and unethical industry practices, which poses significant risks to the business interests, global image, and industry reputation of Portable and Zeh Nation.

“Stelliza’s lack of transparency, integrity, and respect for ethical business practices have breached the trust placed upon her as a Manager and also jeopardized the financial stability of our Artiste and his label. For any inquiries regarding future businesses, please direct your correspondences to the named Manager on the bios of the singer’s verified handles.”‍
