Fast-rising singer, Habeeb Okikiola, better known as Portable, on Friday disclosed that he stayed away from performing at President-elect, Mr Bola Tinubu’s inauguration concert because he was offered N5 million instead of N10 million performance fee.
The street singer took to his Instagram page to share a video where he alleged that organisers of the event which was spearheaded by Seyi Tinubu, son of the President-elect, wanted to take half of N10 million agree fee but he rejected it.
“This is the reason why I failed to perform at the concert held to celebrate the inauguration of the President-elect, Asiwaju Tinubu, in Abuja on Thursday night (May 25).
The singer insisted that he couldn’t be part of such arrangement because he deserved something better and would not accept anything less than his worth being a music star.
Sharing videos on his Instagram page, the Zazuu crooner wrote, “ZAzuu Them Dõn Rip Me oooh Na Me Sing Akoi TINUBU ✍🏻 Eja Loni Ibu 💰 Give What Belongs To ZAZUU To ZAZUU.”
In one of the videos, he said: “Na me sing Akoi Tinubu o. No be Obi una dey vote for? Tinubu enter now those useless people una go dey perform there, no be me promote Tinubu?
“Na so them call my manager o. Say them want make I come perform for Abuja. Na 10 million them drop o, but na five million go reach portable hand.
“Na so I no gree, I tear the paper. I delete the number, you dey whine Jesus? Na hin no make me perform for Abuja o.”
Many artistes like Wande Coal, KCee, and others performed at the concert, which Tinubu and the Vice-President-elect, Kashim Shettima, also attended.
Persecondnews reports that both Tinubu and Shettima had donned a shirt on trousers with a jacket and a fez cap to the admiration of the audience.
