Headies Award: Academy withdraws Portable’s nominations
The Headies Academy has withdrawn the two nominations awarded to fast-rising Nigerian singer, rapper and dancer, Portable Omolalomi whose real name is Habeeb Okikiola.
The Academy made the announcement on all its social media platforms on Tuesday 26th July 2022.
The decision came in the wake of Portable’s recent running of the law where he claimed he is the founder of the deadly one million boys gang which terrorized Lagos citizens during the lock down.
Although the singer later refuted the claim after it attracted wide criticism and led to a police investigation.
Portable had initially been nominated for the Rookie of the Year and Best Street Hop.
