Controversial Nigerian singer Habeeb Olalomi, widely known as Portable, has made a claim that he declined an invitation to perform at President-elect Bola Tinubu’s inauguration concert.
According to Portable, he turned down the offer due to suspicions that some individuals intended to exploit him financially.
He alleged that his manager was contacted and informed that the agreed fee for his performance was N10 million, but he would only receive N5 million.
Incensed by this, the street pop artist tore up the invitation and deleted their contacts.
Portable called on Tinubu to intervene, as he believed that people were attempting to take advantage of him.
The singer insisted that he should have been the star of the event, considering his unwavering support for Tinubu.
He expressed his frustration and called for assistance from Tinubu to address the issue of being exploited.
