Nigerian singer, Habeeb Okikiola aka Portable has announced that he currently charges N5millon to either feature on a song or perform at shows and events.
The Zazuu star made this known in a video he posted on social media as he bragged that he’s now an international superstar.
Portable said his status has been elevated and his price has also increased accordingly, so he will only accept N5million and above for any booking.
He also appealed to entertainers and promoters to make arrangements for him to get shows so that he will give them 10 percent of the fee.

In related news, Nigerian reality TV star, Beauty Tukura has gone online to call out a photographer over his ‘outrageous’ fee for a shoot.
She said the Lagos-based creative charged her a total of N500,000 per look and she wanted to do three looks, which means she will pay three times the fee.
Beauty said the photographer asked for a basic fee of N250k with additional N150k for home service and another N100k because it fell on a weekend.
The ex-beauty queen lamented about the amount being too high even for the conditions he gave her to render service.
According to Beauty, it was a member of her team that got in touch with the photographer so he did not deal with her directly in case people are thinking it’s because she’s a celebrity.
She wrote; “Lagos!!! LMFAO… I contacted a photographer to shoot & this is what he tells me…250k per look & an additional 150k because he’s leaving his studio & another 100k because it’s weekend. PS: I was gonna do 3 looks 😂😂 What are your thoughts?
Let me add that I didn’t contact him personally, someone on my team did so it’s not even a case of “celebrity price or whatever.
It sounds funny to me that I’m paying extra because first, it’s weekend and second, you have to move from your studio in this same Lagos.”
