Because of a death threat to fellow nominees, The Headies disqualify Portable.

For threatening to kill his fellow nominees, The Headies Awards 2022 organizers have removed musician Habeeb Okikiola, aka Portable, off the list of nominees.

The Headies declared that Mr. Habeeb Okikiola (@portablebaeby) had been removed from their list of 15 nominees in order to give a clear message that inappropriate and careless language is not tolerated.

“The music business demands all-around excellence, and it is crucial for young performers who may serve as role models to exude professionalism, appropriate etiquette, and respect for others.”

The organizers claim that Portable was disqualified as a result of several offenses on his social media accounts.

Remember that on May 25, 2022, he said that if he did not win, he would kill, harm, or otherwise adversely influence the other contestants for the same prizes. Publish The Headies

When The Headies announced the nominations for its 2022 edition, Portable was selected to compete in the “Rookie of the Year” and “Best Street-Hop Artiste” categories, according to Gistloaded.

Av, Fave, Magixx, and Ugocci are among the other contenders for “Rookie of the Year.”

He competes in the second division alongside people like Bella Shmurda, Mohbad, Naira Marley, and Goya Menor.

The “Zazuu” singer Portable threatened to sue anyone beat him for the 2022 Headies Award on Instagram.

But after hearing Portable’s comments, the awards’ organizers quickly responded, saying: “We have informed the Nigeria police of Mr. Okokiola’s behavior to fellow nominees.” A written apology to the nominees in both categories as well as to The Headies has also been demanded, along with the immediate withdrawal of the video.

If Mr. Okikiola does not comply with our demands, we will not only bar him from competing in The Headies but also execute the law.

“The general public is hereby urged to ignore the film and to stop sharing it in public spaces, according to The Headies.

The organizers posted the following letter on Instagram on Tuesday to announce Portable’s disqualification:



Additionally, this has sparked a lot of comments on social media. The following are some reactions to Portable’s disqualification.

Chukumaeze says Comparing self with others isn’t the real problem. We learn mostly through modeling others which essentially involves comparing self. The problem is putting self down after comparing. If we were to accept self without condemning self, and try to acquire the qualities that are good in others, we shall grow, Follow us!!!!!!

Emmanuel Wenuturade prince: It’s commendable. Those praising and hyping this young man called Portable are causing more harm to him. He needs to be taken to rehab center. He’s talented, but this street life will limit him even in the future.

Molade M. Olowofoyekun also contributed to the letter by saying This is an act of disenfranchisement! Portable should get a sound lawyer and Sue them to court! It would have been better if he wasn’t nominated. The masses or voters should decide, not the organizers! Almost all this organizers didn’t even know the law protecting every citizens irrespective of their flaws.
