In a touching display of respect, popular Nigerian street artiste, Portable, was seen prostrating to greet his fellow musician and senior colleague, Tiwa Savage. This endearing moment occurred during a show where both artists were set to perform, and it was captured in a video clip that has since been widely shared on social media platforms.
In the video, Tiwa Savage was in the process of getting ready for the show, with her stylists attending to her. It was during this pre-performance preparation that Portable made his entrance. On seeing Tiwa, Portable promptly lowered his head and prostrated in a traditional sign of respect, a practice rooted in Nigerian culture.
This act of respect from Portable was warmly received by Tiwa, who reciprocated the affectionate gesture by giving him an embrace. The heartfelt interaction was brief but significant, as Portable, after exchanging pleasantries with the Afrobeat queen, soon exited the scene to prepare for his performance.
The viral video clip has ignited numerous reactions online. Many social media users have applauded Portable’s respectful attitude towards a senior colleague in the industry, reaffirming that the notion of respect is still very much appreciated and revered. Tiwa Savage, often referred to as the queen of Afrobeat, is widely respected for her contributions to the music industry, and it is no surprise that her influence and success elicit such acts of respect from fellow musicians.
