Nigerian singer Terry G, also known as Gabriel Oche Amanyi, has issued a warning to those who compare him to his conflicted colleague Portable. Portable attracted comparisons to Terry G after his recent altercation with Nigeria Police Force agents when he resisted arrest.
The “Zazuu” singer, who was arrested when police invaded his pub in Ogun State’s Sanga Ota neighborhood, blasted the officers in a viral video. He asserted that an online scammer had sent the police to his pub to make “for no reason” arrests of him and his staff members. He resisted working with the police, bragging that he was a “superstar” and a member of the ruling party.
On social media, his action received a range of responses. Some fans compared his crazy demeanor to that of ‘Free Madness’ singer Terry G. The “Akpako Master,” who disapproved of the similarity, cautioned supporters against equating “original” and “photocopy.” Those who connected Portable’s actions to Terry G’s behavior on Twitter were urged to apologize to the singer.
In the meantime, Portable was given 72 hours by the Ogun State Police Command on Wednesday to report to the closest police station or get ready to be arrested. The deadline is this Friday, March 31, 2023.
