Since breaking into the mainstream, Portable has been one of the artistes advancing the inner cities through his music and news-making lifestyle.
Portable is back in the news, and this time, he has a request for Nigerian megastars Wizkid and Davido.
In a video posted on his Instagram account, Portable who was reacting to Wizkid’s latest philanthropic act of gifting rising hypeman, GEO 20 million naira, reminded Nigerians that he was the one who encouraged Wizkid to show love to the streets in the first place.
Portable claims are quite true as the Street Pop star while appearing on The Honest Bunch Podcast requested that the three Afrobeats heavy weight, Wizkid, Davido, and Burna Boy “show love to the trenches.”
Seeing that Wizkid has acted on his request by gifting GOE 20 million naira after his single, Big Wizzy (Italawa) about the Grammy winner went viral, Portable has a request of his own.
In the video, Portable stated that he doesn’t want money from Wizkid. Instead, he publicly said he wanted to work with Wizkid on a future project. He also made the same request from Davido whom he asks to give him “a life-changing verse.”
Portable has been on the search for his next big collaboration since enjoying mainstream success from the Olamide Baddo-assisted Zazzu Zeh hit single.
This is not the first time Portable is calling on the big names in Nigerian music to work with him. He has earlier called on Wizkid, Davido, Burna Boy, Tiwa Savage, and Asake to consider collaborating with him, as he nurses his own superstar ambitions.
None of the superstars on his list have given him a verse yet. But Portable remains unrelenting in his efforts.
