Nigerian singer Habeeb Okikiola Popularly known as Portable has responded to the Headies statement condemning his death threat to his fellow nominees if he losses the award.
Days after the 2022 Headies nomination list was released, Portable in a video shared on his page said nothing must stop him from clinching the award.
The fast-rising singer who was nominated to contest in the ‘Rookie of the Year’ and ‘Best Street-Hop Artiste’ categories said he will kill whoever beats him to the awards.
Displeased with Portable’s threats, the organisers of Headies in a statement issued on Friday night threatened to disqualify him and demanded a retraction of his statement and apology.
Responding to the statement, Portable in a video shared on his page earlier this morning apologised over the death threat saying he wasn’t going to fight anyone but was merely joking about it.
Portable admitted he had done wrong saying he’s sorry for the usage of such words.
He, however, insisted that the organisers of Headies should give him space and an award because he’s currently taking over the streets.
