I Don’t Regret My Actions, Portable Reacts to Headies Disqualification

For being the subject of an investigation relating to criminal activities, organizers of The Headies awards on Tuesday evening disqualified singer Habeeb Okikiola, aka Portable, from its 15th edition scheduled to hold later this year.

The organizers also cited a claim that he’s the founder of ‘One million Boys’, a suspected cult group in Lagos, as another ground for disqualification.

Reacting to the news of his disqualification, the controversial singer in an Instagram video called the award organizer’s bluff.

“I am a child of light. I have fame, I have money, I have cars, I have wives, I have children. I am rich. People know me everywhere. I don’t regret my actions”, the singer said in a video while being caressed by his new wife.

Since Portable achieved celebrity status, he has always been in the news for several notorious reasons.

Portable was nominated in the ‘Best Street Artist’ and ‘Rookie of the Year categories of the awards alongside Av, Fave, Magixx, and Ugocci.

In a statement from The Headies secretariat, the organizers assured the Nigerian music audience of its commitment to promoting talents and individuals of exemplary character in the best interest of society.

“We regret to announce that following numerous indicting statements made by Mr Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as “Portable”, and the incessant negative attention that Mr. Okikiola has garnered from the Nigeria Police and the general public in recent times, the organizers of the Headies have resolved to disqualify Mr Okikiola as a nominee at the forthcoming 15th Headies Awards,” the statement reads.
