Habeeb Okikiola, the talented yet controversial Nigerian street act widely known by his stage name – Portable, took to his official Instagram handle recently to express his concern about the abundance of negative and phoney energy surrounding him. In his heartfelt post, Portable lamented that despite his sincere efforts and hard work, he has been encountering a lot of negative and unhelpful energies that have been hindering his progress and affecting his morale. He further revealed that he has been feeling relatively low and disappointed with how things have been going for him lately.
However, amidst all the chaos and negativity -the most recent being his NBA conference appearance and the trending news after that- Portable found solace in God being the only constant support in his life. He gratefully acknowledged the Almighty for being his guiding light and faithful companion, who has been with him through thick and thin. Portable also took this opportunity to thank his fans and well-wishers, who have been his pillars of strength during these trying times. Portable’s post was a candid reflection of his feelings.
He mentioned how expensive it was to achieve success while acknowledging that nobody had let him down. However, he also realized that he had failed himself by putting too much trust in others, assuming they were as supportive of him as he was of them. Portable cursed his enemies, stating that he was surrounded by negative energy and had only “one person” to assist him. The post’s caption read:
“At the end of the day, it was only God that stayed; others were just capping. 99 advisers, 1 helper, bad energy EDAPADA.
It cost a lot to get a lot nobody failed me I failed myself thinking everybody was for me like I was for them. It shall not be well with my enemies.
