Portable, a street-pop star, recently revealed an unusual anecdote involving his more experienced musical rival, Adekunle Gold.
Adekunle Gold appears to have asked Portable for a favor regarding the promotion of his most recent musical endeavor.
According to Portable’s account, the renowned R&B vocalist initiated a conversation with him, during which he made a request for support in boosting his new track’s visibility.
The manner in which Adekunle Gold sought this assistance was through Portable’s participation in an online competition centered around the song.
However, Portable was taken aback by Adekunle Gold’s appeal. In contrast to a video challenge, Portable expressed his preference for something more substantial – a collaboration and feature in the track.
This unexpected request left Portable amazed, especially since he himself is currently in pursuit of partnerships and backing to elevate his own musical journey.
In a widely circulated video, the creative mind behind Zeh Nation playfully poked fun at Adekunle Gold’s actions, which seemed somewhat paradoxical given the latter’s already established status in the music industry.

With a blend of Yoruba and pidgin English, Portable humorously recounted how Adekunle Gold, a figure of significant fame, opted for a social media challenge invitation rather than the prospect of a full-fledged song feature.
