Fast-rising Nigerian singer, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, on Wednesday called out Burna Boy for allegedly stealing his slang.
In a video posted on his official Instagram page on Wednesday, Portable recalled that the African giant had used his picture to promote his new album.
Speaking in a mix of Yoruba and English, Portable said “Eh! It’s Zazu, I have come with my wahala (trouble). Wahala is looking for trouble. I sat down jeje (calmly), uncle Burna Boy abeg (please) do you want to help me or rip me?”
“I beg you with God. Should we sing together or you are just using me for your own promotions? You used my picture to promote your album, now you are singing ‘akoi grace, akoi mercy’”
“I own that slang, it’s for Zazuu. Please let us collaborate and release a song. The streets have taken over. Let’s link up, no ripping,” he added.
