Singer Portable has said he is bigger than the organisers of the Headies award, including the winner of the 15th edition’s next rated artiste category, BNXN.
The singer made this declaration via a live session on his official Instagram page on Monday, September 5, after the conclusion of the 15th edition show.
“I blow everywhere, my face show. Nowhere wey dem no dey hear zazuu. I blow pass who get headies. Who create am? People wey dey the table wey dey share the award, I blow pass them. People wey una give award, I blow pass them this year and I go blow pass them forever,” Portable said.
The streethop artiste said all the winners and nominees had not “blown”, as far as residents living in the “trenches” could not sing along to their songs.
The Zazu crooner had been disqualified from participating at the award ceremony, despite being nominated in the two categories of “Best Street Hop Artiste” and “Rookie of the year”, for misdemeanours.
Organisers of the Headies had disqualified him for the negative attention he was attracting due to threats against fellow nominees, organising the assault of DJ Chicken and claiming to have founded the infamous robbery gang “One million boys”.
In the now viral instalive clip, he also mentioned top street artiste Bella Shmurda, saying he was an amazing artiste, until the industry ruined his career with packaging and “the fake life”, just like they wanted to do to him, until he ran away.
