According to the ‘My Dear’ crooner, Portable has gained more prominence in today’s music scene compared to Wizkid, who is a Grammy winner.

He added that God used British rapper, Skepta to bless Portable, by featuring him on a song titled, ‘Tony Montana’. The single is Portable’s first number one song on Apple Music Nigeria since he released ‘Zazuu Zeh.’

Dammy Krane wrote; “Portable is more relevant than your fav; Topic for another day online bara. (Let me rephrase for the unintelligent ones); Atp Portable is more relevant than Wizkid; God use Skepta do this one again.”

Meanwhile, in another news…

On-Air-Personality, Daddy Freeze has said music superstar, Wizkid is almost on the same level with late Afrobeats legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.

Daddy Freeze stated this in a video shared on his social media page while wading into the feud between Wiz and rappers in the industry.

It may be recalled that during an interview with 10 magazine the “Essence” crooner said rap is dead while arguing in favour of Afrobeats dominating the Hip Hop genre.

According to the Starboy Entertainment founder, the Hip Hop artistes mostly rap on the same beats, and they have similar styles.

Subsequently, Wizkid received backlash mostly from Nigerian rap artistes who either responded to him online or released diss raps.

In reaction, Freeze opined that for Wizkid to have made that comment, it comes from a place of objectivity soaked in experience.

He said; “When it comes to music in Nigeria as a whole, Wizkid is almost on the level of Fela then. What he (Wizkid) has been able to do, not many people can achieve it, when he says something, hear him out, there is one thing in me that makes me different from many people I might not like you but if you speak the truth I will support you…

The truth is the truth and it will set you free. When you see the truth and started ignoring the truth because of the person carrying the truth we become like Nigerian politicians, all of them are the same but they will make one look worse than the rest of them.”
