Portable reacts to Headies disqualification



Nigerian recording artiste, Portable has revealed that he is unapologetic about any action he has taken so far.

The controversial musician stated this in a newly released video on his Instagram platform.

On Tuesday, July 26, Portable whose real name is Habeeb Okikiola was disqualified by officials of the Headies Award academy due to his controversial statement after the Headies nomination list was released in May 2022. The singer threatened to murder his fellow nominees should he fail to win the two categories he was nominated.

Most recently, Portable claimed he was the founder of the heinous sects, One Million Boys and Ajah Boy, a group that terrorized the residents of Lagos state during the Coronavirus lockdown in 2020.

Although he has since retracted his claim, his statement has forced the Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, to order an investigation into the claims.

While Police investigation is still ongoing, the organizers of 2022 Headies Awards decided to disqualify him as a nominee at the forthcoming 15th Headies Awards.

He also shared another video in which he alleged that people pay money to get awards.
