Nigerian street-hop singer, Okikiola Habeeb, popularly known as Portable, has apologised to the headies academy after he was recently disqualified as a nominee for the 2022 headies award.
In the late hours of today, Tuesday, July 26, 2022, organisers of the Headies Awards took to the official Hiptv social media accounts to announce the disqualification of Portable (Zazu), also including why this decision was reached.
The reason for this disqualification was a result of his alleged affiliation with the notorious criminal group ‘1 million boys’, threatening other nominees and other activities o social media.
The Headies Academy also called attention to the fact that the singer in a video threatened them, stating that if the award wasn’t given to him, he would harm other nominees in the same categories he had been nominated for.
Although the controversial singer had initially reacted by saying “he doesn’t regret his decision”, in a new video, he expressly apologised to the award organisers, retracted, asked for the disqualification to be retracted, and as well encouraged his fans to keep voting.
