Controversial singer, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, has explained why he did not perform at the #RenewedHopeConcert, as part of activities to mark the inauguration of the president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, which took place on Thursday, in Abuja.
The singer, in a post on his Instagram page, said that the organisers of the concert offered him N5 million instead of the N10 million they agreed upon.
“ZAzuu Them Dõn Rip Me oooh Na Me Sing Akoi TINUBU Eja Loni Ibu Give What Belongs To ZAZUU To ZAZUU,” he wrote.
He knocked other artistes who performed at the event, saying many of them didn’t openly support Tinubu as he did during the campaign.
“I was the one who sang ‘Akoi Tinubu,’ right? Weren’t you the ones who voted for Obi? Now that Tinubu is in power, those useless people are the ones performing there. Wasn’t it me who promoted Tinubu?
“That’s how they called my manager. They wanted me to come perform in Abuja. They initially dropped 10 million, but only 5 million would reach Portable. I refused. I tore the paper. I deleted the number. Are you blaming Jesus? That’s why I didn’t perform in Abuja,” he wrote
Renowned artistes, including Wande Coal, KCee, Fireboy DML, Waje, Asake among others performed at the concert, attended by Tinubu, the vice president-elect, Kashim Shettima; Speaker, House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila; Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, Senators among others.
