Street-hop singer, Habeeb Okikiola popularly known as Portable, has given credit to ace rapper, Olamide for paving the way for him to be successful.

He took to TikTok and expressed gratitude to Olamide for turning his life around, noting that without the YBNL boss, he would have still been on the streets.

Portable said the music executive gave him a chance when nobody believed in him, adding that the rapper signed and sponsored him without asking for anything in return.

The Zazuu Zeh crooner said he used to perform for N200 at events before the ‘Melo Melo’ hit maker helped him. He also said Olamide deserves accolades for his recent collaboration with Skepta in London.

Portable said; “If not for Olamide, I would’ve still been on the streets. I went to London and collaborated with the best rapper in the UK and it’s all thanks to Olamide. When nobody believed in me, you told me that I was gonna make it and I’ve made it bigger than I ever thought.

Olamide is a boss, he sponsored me without signing me and never asked for anything in return and that’s why I respect him so much. Some people use me to do bläck business but Olamide is the only guy in this industry who showed me love.

Olamide paved the way for me, he’s my boss and God used him to bless me. I’m from streets and I’ve been through a lot but I thank God for sending Olamide to me. I used to perform for N200 before Olamide helped me and he didn’t rip me like most people do in this industry.”
