Nigerian singer and record label founder, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable has alleged that popular actor, Charles Okocha ripped him off.
He claimed that both of them bagged an endorsement deal for a brand and they were supposed to share N40 million payment for the deal, but the actor pocketed everything.
According to Portable, he was supposed to get an equal share of the money, that is N20 million naira, but he hasn’t received anything.
He lamented bitterly in a video making the rounds online as he called out Charles Okocha for cheating him. The singer called on the public to help him stop the actor from enjoying the money alone.

Meanwhile, in another news…
Hip Hop star turned realtor, Sikirullahi Olanrewaju Dabiri, popularly known as Eldee The Don, has explained why why he quit music and relocated abroad.
The former member of the defunct Trybesmen, said he left Nigeria because he needed to “clear” his head after he got “scammed” by an advisory firm that collected money from some investors.
The veteran rapper, said it took him almost a year before he realised that he was being scammed after incurring huge debts.
Eldee said; “What happened was that, Shayman introduced me to a gentleman called Tonye Akindele, who at a time had a capital advisory firm. What they do is to look for business to invest in. They have people who fund those portfolios.
“So they approached me for a partnership. And I accepted. But unbeknown to me, what was happening was him [Tonye Akindele] and his partner had the people who were funding the record label but the label was not getting money. I was still funding my music.”
