Ossai Success, an aide to Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, has stated that the fast-rising singer, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, should be taken to a rehabilitation center to help fix his constant misbehavior.
This was in reaction to a viral video clip, where the singer happened to have organised some youths to beat up his disc jockey for allegedly sending a text message to his wife.
Reacting to the video, the Special Assistant on Media to the Governor took to his verified Facebook page on Monday to call for the singer’s rehabilitation.
Success wrote, “Take Portable to alcohol and drug rehabilitation centre. As a young boy, I love Zazu singer Portable’s zeal for defeating poverty but the truth must be told.
“There are a lot of misbehaviours in him that are associated with too much alcohol and drugs. This young boy needs to be taken care of before he gets himself damaged all in the name of fame.
“Someone close to him should as a matter of urgency take Portable to an alcohol and drug rehabilitation centre. Don’t say his character is what is giving him fame because this is how some people started having kidney problems or musical careers started dying while people were busy hailing them.
“I need him to be better in doing his things and that is why I am so concerned about his well-being. He needs urgent attention.”
Nigerians react to Ossai’s comments:
l.tobiloba: “That is the unfortunate reality, nothing but the facts. From his picture here, you can tell he is not alright. People, however, will not want to offend you as long as they benefit from you.”
Zainab_omolara_: “The guy is getting out of hand.”
Its_racheal__: “Portable doesn’t need any help please.”
Onyinyechistephen: “He’s right, Portable just dey behave like a nuisance.”
Success’ comment is coming after the police already declared Portable wanted for his barbaric actions. Since his rise to fame in December 2021, Portable has made the most negative headlines, his people should probably consider Success’ suggestions.
