On the other hand, Portable had a misunderstanding with the famous Nigerian dancer Poco Lee who he accused of taking $2400 out of the $3000 that Wizkid had sprayed him during their performances at the livespot concert held in Lagos. He also claims that Poco Lee was trying to earn the legit right to Zazu Zeh, speaking in pidgin English on one of his videos that went viral, he said “Poco Lee didn't show him love and he wants to rip him because he claimed he owns Zazu Zeh.

After his claims, Portable's promoter Kogbagidi felt disappointed at the act displayed by the new rising star. He states that Portable was an ungrateful person and the act displayed was unprofessional which is usually expected from upcoming artists. With all his claims the alleged Dancer never responded to his claims. Several celebrities sued for peace.

The singer took to his page another video apologizing for the earlier video in which he called Poco Lee and sought his forgiveness, I guess they are now on good terms.
Amidst the controversy, money, performances, fame, and love, Portable has taken to his social media to thank a fan for gifting him a brand new car on the 23rd of December 2021 and also appreciate his benefactors Olamide, Poco Lee, and Kogbagidi
His real name is Habeeb Okikiola, and he was born on the 12th of March 1994 to Mr. and Mrs. Okikiola in the Abeokuta area of Ogun state.
There are no details of whether he has any siblings, but he is a Nigerian by birth and celebrated his 27th birthday in March 2021.
There are no details on the schools Portable went to but I went to elementary school.
Portable has been interested in music since when he was still in elementary school, and the Abeokuta-born singer was influenced by rap songs by American artists such as Dr. Dre, Tupac Shakur, The Notorious B.I.G and Snoop Dogg, among others.
The Zazu Zeh singer wanted to be like many of these top stars, and so he began to rap.
However, following the emergence of indigenous rappers like Lord Of Ajasa, Dagrin, Danny Young, Olamide, QDot, CDQ, Portable switched to rapping in the Yoruba language.
Portable has been in the entertainment industry for ten years before he finally shot to fame through the influence of Olamide. Today he has met with Tiwa Savage, Wizkid, and if he continues to release trending songs, he could become an A-rated star soon.
