Headies Award disqualifies Portable over uncouth statement, death threat

The Organisers of Headies Awards have disqualified singer, Habeeb Okikiola, AKA Portable, from the list of nominees.

The singer was disqualified for threatening to kill his co-nominees.

Portable was nominated in the ‘Rookie of the Year’ and ‘Best Street-Hop Artiste’ categories.

But a statement issued by the organizers on Tuesday said Portable was disqualified from its 15th nominees’ list to further pass a strong message of not condoning reckless and uncouth statements.

It also cited a series of misdemeanors via Portable’s social media platforms, adding that the singer is the subject of an investigation relating to criminal activities.

Recall that on the 25th of May 2022, Portable had threatened to kill, or cause harm to the other nominees in the same categories of awards he was nominated for if he does not emerge the winner.

”On the 15th of July 2022, Mr Okikiola published a video on his social media platforms where he stated that he is the founder of the notorious cult group, ‘One Million Boys’. The said group gained notoriety for maiming and robbing innocent Nigerians over the years.
