Nigerian singer Habeeb Olalomi Oyegbile, known as Portable, recently made a video in which he discussed his experiences with prominent artists such as Olamide, Wizkid, and Davido. In the video, he mentioned how Olamide had failed to respond to his messages and how Wizkid and Davido had not delivered the promised verses for a song.
This revelation came amid an ongoing dispute with his signed artist, Young Duu. Portable explained that he has tried to make a name for himself and use his success to assist others, but he feels unappreciated.
He emphasized that he doesn’t pester Olamide, who had previously helped him, because he doesn’t want to risk damaging their relationship. He also mentioned that he didn’t beg Olamide for financial support and that he bought a car with his own money.
Portable expressed his disappointment that certain Nigerian celebrities had not promoted his work or followed through on their promises. He mentioned that both Davido and Wizkid had promised to collaborate with him, but nothing had materialized.
