Habeeb Okikiola, Nigerian controversial singer, better known as Portable, has declared himself a regenerated Afrobeat pioneer, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.
He also made it clear that his fans gave him the title “Newborn Fela”, which he reckoned with.
Said Portable while speaking in the latest episode of the Bae U Barbi show, Curiosity Made Me Ask: “I didn’t give myself the title, ‘Newborn Fela’. My fans gave it to me. You know I have a lot of fans, my fans brought me to this point.
“Normally, you have to be bold, a lion don’t fear to walk alone”.
Said he to those still calling him an up-and-coming musician: “Which superstar do you know that is bigger than me in Nigeria? I am the one they are talking about now: musician that is trending. My talk is trending, my slangs are trending, my movement is trending, my dressing is trending.
“Last year, I was upcoming this year, I am also upcoming. I will be up and coming everyday. Coming with new glory everyday. Newborn Fela. Every year is my year”.
