Why I refused to perform at Tinubu’s renewed hope concert – Portable. Controversial Nigerian singer, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, has revealed why he refused to perform at the president-elect, Bola Tinubu’s Renewed Hope Concert in Abuja on Thursday.
Portable on Friday, in viral clips posted on social media, revealed that the Tinubu inauguration concert organisers offered him N5 million instead of N10m that was billed for his performance.
Sharing videos on his Instagram page, the Zazuu crooner said, “ZAzuu Them Dõn Rip Me oooh Na Me Sing Akoi TINUBU. Eja Loni Ibu. Give What Belongs To ZAZUU To ZAZUU.”
“Na me sing Akoi Tinubu o. No be Obi una dey vote for? Tinubu enters now those useless people went to perform there, no be me promote Tinubu?
“That was what they called my manager. Saying they want me to perform in Abuja. And I was paid 10 million, but na five million, go reach my hand. That was why I disagreed, tore the paper and deleted the number. You dey whine, Jesus? Na hin no make me perform for Abuja o.”
Many artists, including Wande Coal, KCee and others performed at the concert, which Tinubu and his vice, Kashim Shettima, also attended.
