Portable Laments On TG Omori Video Shoot Price, Shares Conversation
Zazu is in the news today. Being his usual ‘Ika of Africa’ self, he revealed his confidential discussion with the song video director, TG Omori.
TG Omori, the well-known music director, has received criticism for his rate card for a video from Nigerian street-hop singer Habeeb Okikiola, also known as Portable.
The self-proclaimed ‘Idamu Adugbo’, who was arguably the most controversial Nigerian performer of 2022, recently vented on Instagram after Boy director demanded a staggering $50,000 from him to film a music video for Portable’s song “Apostle.”
Portable’s “Apostle” single is a socio-conscious track that examines the deceits of religious who use religion as a ploy to defraud unsuspecting and gullible victims.
With his tagline “who go help you, no go stress you,” Portable was heard complaining about how pricey the sum is in an Instagram discussion between the two that he made public. This is not the first time an artiste has come online to lament the cost of filming with Boy director.
Blaqbonez recently had to produce/shoot his picture for his “Back In Uni” video as he couldn’t agree with TG over an affordable price range.
TG Omori is one of Nigeria’s most prominent video directors and has worked on projects that include a handful of Afrobeat stars like Fireboy, Asake, Tiwa Savage, BNXN, Olamide, and a whole lot more.
In response to the Portable’s rant, Omori, in a now-deleted tweet, disclosed to the public that the ‘Zazu’ video was shot for free.
Somebody tell Portable Zazoo was a free video, did it without ever mentioning a word. Bruh has a video and never knew how it came about but his calling me out for a discounted price.
