Singer Portable Reveals He Turned Down N5m Offer to Perform at Tinubu’s Concert, Cites Reason

Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, has expressed his disappointment revealing that the organisers of the Tinubu inauguration concert had offered him N5 million instead of the agreed N10 million for his performance.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Portable could not perform at the concert held in Abuja on Thursday night to commemorate the inauguration of President-elect Bola Tinubu.

On his Instagram page, the Zazuu crooner shared videos expressing his dissatisfaction. In one of the videos, he wrote, “ZAzuu Them Dõn Rip Me oooh Na Me Sing Akoi TINUBU ✍🏻 Eja Loni Ibu 💰 Give What Belongs To ZAZUU To ZAZUU.”

In the video, Portable voiced his frustration, stating, “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?”

He continued, sharing the details of the offer he received, “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.”

As previously reported, renowned artists such as Wande Coal, KCee, and others performed at the concert, attended by Tinubu and his vice, Kashim Shettima.
