26th July, 2022
Smooth Productions Limited, the organizers of the Headies Awards, has announced the withdrawal of the two nominations awarded to the rising Nigerian entertainer, Portable.
The decision was made public on Tuesday 26th July 2022 via the Headies social media platforms.
The organizers said the withdrawal was necessitated by the misdeeds of Portable.
The entertainer recently claimed he is the founder of the deadly one million boys gang that terrorized Lagos citizens during the lockdown.
Portable would later refute this claim after it attracted wide criticism and led to a police investigation.
Portable also previously threatened to kill other nominees should he lose either of the two categories he was nominated for.
The Headies Academy’s decision to withdraw Portable’s nomination means that he won’t be getting a chance to win the Rookie of the Year and Best Street Hop which he was nominated for.
