Portable Survives Car Accident, Apologises To Headies Over Death Threats

Habeeb Okikiola, aka Portable, survived a car accident shortly after apologizing to the Headies Awards organizers for making death threats against the artists nominated alongside him in two categories: Best Street-Hop Artiste and Rookie of the Year.

The singer took to Instagram to share a video of the damaged vehicle. "I am just looking for something to eat," he explained, "and may God not allow me to meet what will eat me." But why was the passenger seat I sat in the most damaged part of the vehicle? 

Meanwhile, nothing happened to the vehicle's driver's side. They want to murder a celebrity, but nothing bad will happen to a child of God."

Prior to the accident, the singer apologized to the Headies for threatening to kill himself if he did not win the awards for which he was nominated. 

"Headies have nominated a lunatic," he said. The streets have taken control. So you should present us with the award. Please don't be upset. If I misbehave, I will not be the first. Many people have misbehaved in the past. Please allow me to collect my award."

Smooth Promotions Limited, the Headies' parent company, had written a petition to the Nigerian Police Force on Friday, formally notifying them of the singer's threat to other award nominees. They also demanded that the singer apologize for his remarks.

The statement read in part, “Should Mr Okikiola fail to meet our demands, we would not only disqualify him from participating in the Headies but also enforce the instrumentalities of the law to the fullest.”

On Wednesday, May 25, 2022, the singer had said, “Those are my awards. (If) anybody else wins, I will ask for them to be killed. If the organisers give my award to someone else, they will die. Don’t give my award to another person. He (the person) will die.”
