Fast-rising Nigerian singer, Portable, born Habeeb Okikiola, has revealed the reason he dropped out of school.
Portable, in a recent interview on Jahbless Original Intelligence Podcast, disclosed that he left school to focus on his music career because music is a money-making machine.
The Zazuu Zeh hit-maker said that he knew right from the start how much wealth music could give him so he faced it full time.
Portable said; “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.”
The artiste added that before his rise to fame in December last year, he met some people who killed his career with ‘over-packaging’.
He said; “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 reaps 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.”
