Them no help me, OBO promised me one verse – Portable calls out Davido, Wizkid and Burna Boy
“No Be to Dey Post Cars & Houses”: Portable Tells Wizkid to Help Upcoming Artists, Reveals Davido’s Promise
In a recent interview, Portable, real name Habeeb Okikiola, criticised his more seasoned peers Davido, Wizkid, and Burna Boy for not offering their assistance to up-and-coming musicians.
Portable, who previously boasted of winning a Grammy award for his debut album, Ika of Africa, as well as opening up about a prospective collaboration with Asa, made this public after being interviewed by media personality, Timi Agbaje, at his Odogwu Bar and Restaurant.
In the video, Portable claims that he is in desperate need of assistance right now and implicitly challenges Wizkid to lend a hand rather than display his wealth by displaying his vehicles, house, and other possessions.
The “Zazoo Zeh” hitmaker went on to say that there are many undiscovered musicians in the trenches who have musical skills, but they lack the support of well-known artists. He noted that having someone like Wizkid would be very helpful to struggling musicians.
Portable continued by saying that Davido had promised to provide him a verse to blow but had not yet done so.
He continued by saying that he is aware of Davido’s grief and prays to God to grant him happiness so that he can deliver the verse he had previously promised to him.
Portable further seeks the support of Grammy award-winner, Burna Boy whom he referred to as “Egbon Ogbana Choko.”
He says that because Burna Boy is a giant of Africa and a worldwide performer, collaborating with him, the “Ika of Africa,” will go a long way in attracting grace and additional benefits.
Additionally, he pleaded with Burna Boy, Wizkid, and Davido to support him and other up-and-coming artists because they have so far failed to do so.
In his words:
“Make Wizkid come help boys for street no be to they post cars and house. Davido don promise me say he wan give me one verse make I blow. Burna Boy na international.”
"No be to dey post house and car… Make Wizkid and Davido them epp us. Davido promise me verse to help me blow"
