Poco Lee recently admitted he came up with the name in junior secondary school in an interview with Potpourri. “That took place in music class. Poco a Poco, which translates to “little by little,” is an Italian expression in music. I was the shortest student in the class then, so I got the nickname Poco.

On 21 December 2021, up-and-coming musician Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known by his stage name Portable, vehemently complained about how Poco Lee was robbing him of the sales from his hit song “Zazu.” He said that Poco Lee had stolen his music and taken the glory and credit for it, noting that the dancer went around claiming to be the song’s legal owner while denying him (Portable), who was the tune’s genuine owner, the credit and the proceeds from sales.

Poco Lee expressed regret for endorsing Portable in July 2022 because, according to him, every Portable time runs into difficulty, his name and Olamide, another musician who had assisted in propelling him to fame, are always brought up.
