Organisers of The Headies Awards 2022 edition have disqualified singer, Habeeb Okikiola, professionally known as Portable from the list of nominees for threatening to kill his co-nominees.
The Headies stated that Mr Habeeb Okikiola ( @portablebaeby ) was disqualified from its 15th nominees’ list to further pass a strong message of not condoning reckless and uncouth statements.
Recall that on the 25th of May 2022, he threatened to kill, harm or cause harm to the other nominees in the same categories of awards he was nominated for if he does not emerge the winner.”
Portable was nominated to contest in the ‘Rookie of the Year’ and ‘Best Street-Hop Artiste’ categories when The Headies unveiled the nominees for its 2022 edition.
Other nominees e in the ‘Rookie of the Year’ category include Av, Fave, Magixx, and Ugocci.
For the second category, he is pitted against Bella Shmurda, Mohbad, Naira Marley, and Goya Menor among others.
However, not being pleased with Portable’s statement, organisers of the awards announced Portable’s disqualification on it’s Instagram page on Tuesday July 26 2022.
