Manny Monie, an up-and-coming Nigerian entertainer and ex-signee to controversial singer Habeeb Okikiola aka Portable’s record label, admitted to being behind the singer’s recent troubles. In a viral video on social media, Manny Monie revealed that he had written to the police asking for Portable’s arrest. He said Portable declined to respond to the petition after three months.
In November, Portable attacked his signee, Manny Monie, for allegedly using a different distributor. Furthermore, Portable claimed he made millions of naira in the studio within a few days but was shocked after returning from a month-long trip to gross just 7,000 naira.
However, Manny Monie said his former boss accused him of fraud even after paying him 700,000 naira to appear in one of his songs. The incident dragged on social media and eventually died down and went quiet until Manny Monie sent the police to arrest Portable. According to him, the “Zazu” crooner had appropriated his property and was sending threats to him.
And After the recent uproar when police came to arrest the musician at his Odogwu bar, Nigerian police said the singer would face legal action.
On Tuesday, March 28, 2022, Portable, who is notorious for his never-ending controversies, got into another face-off with police officers, who he said broke into his restaurant and bar in Sango Ota, Ogun State, after receiving orders from a scammer (Yahoo boy) who sent them there to arrest him. However, he maintained that just because he assaulted his “ungrateful signee” doesn’t mean he should be under arrest.
In the viral clip, Portable yelled at law officers trying to arrest him, calling himself a “Baboon.” CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, a spokesman for the Force, states that Portable’s actions are illegal and punishable by law.
