Street-pop sensation, Habeeb Okikiola, with Portable as stage name, has narrated his ordeal in the hands of his friends who physically assaulted him recently.
The controversial singer narrated his ordeal in a video posted on his Instagram account over the weekend.
Portable revealed that some men with whom he was friends before he became a star attacked him while he was defending his sister from them.
According to Portable, he flew back to Lagos from The Gambia after he was told that his sister was being assaulted by her husband who happened to be one of his long-term friends.
Portable narrated how he footed the hospital bills when his sister put to bed after she was impregnated by said friend.
He also shared that he financed the naming ceremony.
Portable, who displayed the bruises he suffered on his arms and head, revealed that the men who attacked him were persons whom he has previously assisted in various capacities.
He stated that they were envious of him because he was now a star who can afford to buy their family properties.
While the issues that led to the attack on Portable remain unclear, in the video, he revealed that he was attempting to protect his sister from her husband.
He noted that his superstar status won’t stop him from protecting his family.
In a statement issued by his camp, Portable described the event as disheartening and he intends to take legal action.
The statement said: “The events of the last few days has been a bit challenging and very disheartening. As a Management, we are unable to come to terms with how young people can be so blindly motivated by their entitlement mentality that they would helplessly resort to wanton destruction of property and life threatening bodily harm.
“Our Lawyers have been fully briefed and necessary legal actions are being negotiated in ensuring that this regrettable action of some self-motivated-greedy lots does not go unpunished as the law is a respecter of no one. Once again, we thank you for standing by us all these gone by years.”
