Habeeb Okikiola, also known as Portable, a singer, has claimed that he skipped the Tinubu inauguration concert on May 25 in Abuja because the event’s organisers wanted to pay him N5 million instead of N10 million for his participation.
He said that despite a N10 million budget for his participation, he would only receive a N5 million payment.
“Na me sing Akoi Tinubu o. No be Obi una dey vote for? Tinubu enter now those useless people una go dey perform there, no be me promote Tinubu? Na so them call my manager o. Say them want make I come perform for Abuja. Na 10 million them drop o, but na five million go reach Portable hand. Na so I no gree, I tear the paper. I delete the number, you dey whine Jesus? Na hin no make me perform for Abuja o.”
Other artists like Naira Marley performed at the concert that was attended by Tinubu and his vice, Kashim Shettima.
