I’ll rather use the $50k to buy land in my hometown – Portable continues dragging TG Omori
Controversial street-hop singer, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, has resumed his attack on video director, TG Omori over the amount he charges.
It was reported days ago that Portable lampooned him for charging $50,000 (N37 million) when he contacted Omori to shoot a video for one of his songs.
The Zazuu star took to his Instagram story to make noise about the fee and wondered why the director was charging that much.
Portable said the director has started to stress him and used one of his favourite lines and noted that someone who wishes to help another person would not stress them.
He shared screenshots of their chats in a video, where he also replied to Omori with voice notes lamenting about the money being too high.
In a fresh video with some friends, Portable said he will use the money to buy acres of land in his community than to pay TG.
The Zazuu Zeh hit maker reiterated that it is not possible for him to pay someone N37 million for a music video when members of his family are looking up to him for their daily feeding.
He declared that he knows the family he comes from, and he is not crazy to the extent of making such a heavy mistake.
Watch him speak below:
In other entertainment news, controversial artiste, Portable revealed that the money he earned from his breakout single, ‘Zazuu Zeh’ did not exceed N3 million.
The street-hop singer said he wa ripped off by people in the industry because he was still up-and-coming and did not realise how things work in the Nigerian entertainment scene.
He hit the limelight in December 2021 after Poco Lee introduced him to rapper, Olamide who then hopped on the remix of Zazuu.
The singer was interviewed on The Echo Roon where he talked about all the things he endured in the first few months as a bubbling artiste.
Portable said he has been defrauded of of N5million and N3million by different people who wanted to exploit him at the time.
He said the N3 million he made from Zazuu when it was a trending song is what he used to buy his his Toyota Camry.
According to him, the reason he could not make more than that amount is because he single handedly took care of everybody on the team which includes a manager, promoter and their own workers.
He said that he would fuel the promoter’s car, feed him and also take care of his boys, adding that anytime he visits a boutique to buy clothes, they would follow him, and he’d buy for them as well.
