HEADIES ACADEMY DISQUALIFIES SINGER PORTABLE FROM ITS ROLL OF AWARDS
Ahead of the 15th Annual Headies awards the Headies academy has disqualified street pop singer Habeeb Okikiola popularly known as Portable from its list of nominees for this year’s ceremony.
The Headies Secretariat in a statement made available on social media said Portable who was nominated in the Best Street Artiste and the Rookie of The Year categories was disqualified due to the incessant negative attention the singer has been receiving from the Nigeria Police and the general public.
The Zazuu Zeh singer Portable has been in public glare for a couple of weeks now being a subject of investigations relating to alleged criminal activities.
On July 18 2022, the Inspector General of Police had ordered the Commissioner of Police in Lagos to investigate the indicting statement made in a viral video by Portable claiming to have founded the cult group One Million Boys terrorising residents of Lagos and its environs an allegation the singer denied.
Prior to that in June, the Ogun State Police Command had given Portable 48 hours ultimatum to subject himself at the nearest police station in the state for questioning following the maltreatment of his supposed former Disc Jockey DJ Chicken who was beaten by the singer and his associates; an act the police described as barbaric.
In a swift reaction the singer Portable has said he is not bothered about his disqualification from the Headies Awards nominations.
