Portable’s Childhood And Education
Portable Omolalomi was born in the historic capital of Abeokuta on March 12, 1994. He was named Habeeb Okikiola a week after he was born. He was born into the Yoruba family of Mr and Mrs Okikiola in Ogun State, southwest Nigeria.
Portable Omolalomi and his brothers were reared in Abeokuta by their parents, who shared their father and mother’s Muslim beliefs. Portable Omolalomi grew up in Abeokuta, therefore he was well-versed in Yoruba from an early age.
Yoruba was the language he used to converse with his parents, classmates and neighbors, and extended family members. He was fascinated by rap music by American singers such as Dr. Dre, Tupac Shakur, The Notorious B.I.G, and Snoop Dogg, which he played on his father’s music tape deck while still in primary school.
He idolized these singers and began writing rap songs anytime he was motivated. Meanwhile, the advent of local rap singers such as Lord Of Ajasa, Dagrin, Danny Young, Olamide, QDot, and CDQ pushed him to transition to Yoruba rap and pursue a career as a professional musician.
Growing up, Portable Omolalomi did not lose out on the right to obtain a decent education. For his primary and senior school education, his parents ensured that he was registered in the best public schools in Abeokuta. However, instead of continuing his study at a university, he chose to pursue vocational training at a training center.
Portable Omolalomi decided to migrate to Lagos State, Africa’s music capital because he acknowledged he would have a greater shot of thriving in the industry if he was in the right position.
While in Lagos, Portable Omolalomi searched for producers with whom he might connect because he was writing creative rap tunes. To pay his costs, he continued to work as an artisan in Lagos’ mainland.
Portable Omolalomi remained persistent in his quest of just being an A-list musician in the industry, after creating a few singles that went badly commercially. He had an unexpected contact with his music star, Olamide, earlier, and fate smiled on him. Portable was awestruck as he knelt and sobbed uncontrollably over Olamide’s legs.
Interestingly for Portable Omolalomi, Olamide was delighted by his skills and offered him to work with dancer and recording artist Poco Lee on a long-term collaboration. Zazuu Zeh’s song was born from the project, and it was an instant success.
Portable has been thrust into the spotlight by the single, which has proved popular in the business because of its catchy lyrics and the term “Zazuu Zeh.” Portable Omolalomi has gotten numerous offers for collaboration from top artists in the business since becoming recognized after the single.
Portable and Poco Lee controversy
Although Portable’s rise to fame is perceived as grace by many Nigerians, he nearly lost the opportunity when he called out Poco Lee on social media. In one video he shared on his timeline, Portable claimed Poco Lee stole his song and gave him only $600 out of the $3000 Wizkid sprayed on him.
As the video went viral, many slammed Portable while others slammed Poco Lee. During this time, popular show promoter Kogbagidi sent out Portable from his hotel room. Oops! Gratefully, Olamide, among other singers apologized on his behalf, and the promoter forgave him. Portable went on to apologize to Poco Lee and Kogbagidi for the video. Now, they are back together. Yay!
