Habeeb Okikiola, also known as Portable, a fast-rising Nigerian singer, has spoken out about his decision to drop out of school.
In a recent interview with Jahbless Original Intelligence Podcast, the Zazu Zeh star explained that he dropped out of school to focus on his music career because music is a moneymaker.
He opted to drop out of school to focus on music since he was confident he would make it through music.
“Music brings money and is a fast money-making machine. If you sing you must have money unless you’re not good at it, if you’re a musician, you must be rich. I observed that I make a lot of money whenever I sing.” He said
Portable went on to say that before his meteoric surge to fame in December of last year, he met certain people who tried to harm his career by ‘over-packaging’ it.
“You know if they don wicked you severally. So I brought the whole craziness into the music industry.Even if you want to do business with someone who rips you off, make sure you let them know that you are aware of the kind of person they are but you still want to do business but they should also be mindful that you are not weak.
“They know say I sabi sing but they did not open the door. I have met a lot of people that said I’m good but it all ended there. They will sign you and keep you in a room, even when you meet influential people who intend to sponsor you but they will kill your career with over-packaging.” He added.
