Portable loses Canadian show after firing manager, promoter

Nigerian Musician, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly called Portable, has lost his chance to perform at a forthcoming show organized by a comedian, MC Morris, in Canada.

The comedian announced this on Instagram shortly after the news of Portable sacking his manager, deejay, and promoter became public knowledge.

The post read in part, “For those that are asking why I removed idamu adugboyin from my May 22 show. Talent is not enough, a beautiful song without a beautiful attitude is a beautiful nonsense.

“Two managers in less than a year, even sack an innocent DJ that his job na to play song and scratch shaka shaka. I cannot koshi mero am sorry. All transactions canceled and ijoba danku am sorry.”

Earlier, Portable was heard in a live broadcast on Instagram claiming that his manager, deejay, and promoter were solely dependent on him for money.

The upcoming artist, however, stated that they should leave him if they were not gaining from him.

He said, “Am I your father or brother? Manager, DJ, promoter, I will feed una, buy clothes for una, put money into your accounts, I go con do like say I broke, ask the manager for money but he will tell me he has no money as if he is building a house.

“Deejay will also say he has no money, the promoter will also say he has no money. They think the grace will finish but it won’t. If you are not gaining from me, maybe you should clear from me.”

Replying, his erstwhile promoter, popularly known as Ijoba Danku, said he never collected a dime from Portable while acting as his promoter.
