Controversial singer, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, has declared himself a regen of the late Afrobeat pioneer, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.
He said his fans gave him the title “newborn Fela” and he reckoned with it.
Speaking in the latest episode of the Bae U Barbi show, Curiosity Made Me Ask, Portable said: “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.”
To those still calling him an up-and-coming musician, Portable said, “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.”
