Singer, Simi joins Portable’s growing fanbase

Nigerian R&B singer, Simi, has hinted that street-hop singer, Portable deserves to be celebrated for his consistent efforts at staying relevant.

She took to her Twitter page on Thursday to state that she acknowledges he needs to be given his flowers – which means he should be commended.

Her comment follows Portable’s release of a song ‘I am not a prisoner’ to X-ray his short time in prison after being arrested for assaulting police officers.

The Zeh Nation founder also shot a music video as a follow-up immediately after releasing the single which is already getting massive buzz online.

In reaction to the unfolding of events, Simi gave a hint that she is now a fan of his by writing, “Gotta give Portable his flowers lol”

Meanwhile, it was reported earlier that Portable, born Habeeb Okikiola was transported to the Ilaro Correctional Centre in Yewa South Local Government Area of Ogun State, on Monday after being arraigned.

He was charged with five counts bordering on assault before the court presided over by the chief magistrate, A.S Shoneye.

Portable, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Delivering his ruling, the presiding judge said the offences are bailable and granted him bail with bail bond of N300,000 and N500,000 as well two sureties who must reside within the jurisdiction of the honorable court.

The case was adjourned to April 26 for hearing.

After perfecting his bail conditions, Portable was released and one of the things he did was to share his prison experience in a song titled ‘Federal Government Liability’.

In a snippet of the song he shared on Instagram, Portable bragged that he didn’t wear a prison uniform while at the correctional centre.

Celebrating his freedom with the lyrics, the controversial musician stated that he is a child of grace who can never be disgraced.
