The renowned musician, Portable, has made an appeal to Wizkid, urging him to revisit the theme of life in the trenches through his music. Portable, who draws inspiration from Wizkid’s Grammy-winning artistry, expressed his admiration for the star during a conversation on the Honest Bunch podcast with Nedu Wazobia and fellow hosts.

He fondly recalled Wizkid’s poignant track, “Ojuelegba,” which delved into his early struggles in the trenches before rising to fame as a prominent artist. Portable emphasized the significance of Wizkid creating more songs in a similar vein, not only to pay tribute to those like himself who are still enduring challenges, but also to honor their shared experiences.

Highlighting the profound influence Wizkid’s albums have on him, Portable noted that he often immerses himself in Wizkid’s music, using it as a wellspring of inspiration to craft his own meaningful lyrics.

Shatta Wale, a well-known Ghanaian singer, recently shed light on the reason behind his feud with Afrobeats star Burna Boy.

In an interview, Shatta Wale disclosed that he and the Grammy Award-winning artist used to be close friends before their relationship soured.

According to Shatta Wale, the rift between them began when one of his associates informed Burna Boy that Shatta Wale had been involved with his girlfriend.

“Portable – Let’s Promote Afrobeats and Leave Amapiano for South Africans”

“Portable Urges Nigerian Artists to Prioritize Afrobeats Over Amapiano After Grammy Outcome”

In response to South African singer Tyla’s Grammy win over Nigerian artists like Burna Boy and Davido, controversial artiste Habeeb Okikiola, known as Portable, advises Nigerian musicians to focus on promoting Afrobeats instead of Amapiano. Portable emphasized the importance of valuing Nigeria’s genre and suggested that sticking to Afrobeats would enhance Nigeria’s chances of winning international awards. He referenced the evolution of music styles, mentioning the prevalence of shaku shaku before the emergence of Amapiano. Portable asserted that Amapiano belongs to South Africans and cautioned that pursuing it wouldn’t lead Nigerians to Grammy success.

Some comments from social media users:

@lappoosky: “Even when Tyla won the award, they still played a Fela song.”

@Macy_Macy0: “After South Africa and Nigeria play, then we’ll decide this one.”

@Mahasmaan: “Brother, unlike Nigerians, South Africans don’t try to claim or imitate Afrobeats, we consume them raw. Nigerians are suffering from main character syndrome, you wouldn’t stand watching an SA genre shine!”

Here are some additional comments:

@HappinessUgboma: “It’s true what Portable said. We don’t value our Afrobeats, yet we want to use it to win a Grammy. It’s impossible. But when we use our own, it will go a long way and stand tall.”

@MaziLeeTweets: “I’ve been suggesting this: let’s leave Amapiano to them and focus on our Afrobeats. Nigerian producers should return to the drawing board and create fresh, distinctive sounds. I have confidence in SARS on this matter.”

@Sami011y: “The funny part is Amapiano isn’t the popular genre in SA. House music is more popular than Amapiano. Amapiano was just a smoke screen to generate attention for SA music! West Africans must stick to our Afrobeats because we sound very funny doing Amapiano!”
