Nigerian singer, Simi has said her colleague, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, deserves “flowers” despite his controversial nature.
Recall that Portable made headlines after he was captured in a viral video resisting arrest by police operatives. He was arrested and detained for three days before being arraigned before an Ogun State Magistrate Court, sitting in Ifo, on a three-count charge bothering on assault and theft of musical equipment.
He was later granted N800,000 bail; however, the Magistrate ordered that Portable be remanded at the correctional centre in Ilaro pending the perfection of his bail conditions.
Following his release, the Zazu crooner dropped a new song titled ‘Federal Government Liability’. He bragged in the song that he didn’t wear a prison uniform while at the correctional centre in Ilaro.
His new song elicited mixed reactions.
Praising Portable’s resilience, Simi said, deserves accolades.
She tweeted, “Gotta give Portable his flowers lol.”
