Basketmouth, the comedian, and Ossai Success, an aide to Ifeanyi Okowa, Delta state governor, have engaged in a war of words over Portable, the controversial singer.


Portable has been enmeshed in a plethora of dramas in the past week.

Some days ago, he provoked public outrage after a video of him allegedly asking his team members to brutalise a young man in Ogun state surfaced online.

Reacting to the incident, Ossai had said the ‘Zazoo Zeh’ crooner needs urgent rehabilitation from drugs and alcohol.


Basketmouth, however, tackled Ossai via his Instagram story, saying he should also “recommend some of your colleagues to join him”.

He further said the difference between Portable and Ossai’s colleagues “ain’t much”.

“That’s fine, as long you as you recommend some of your colleagues to join him. The difference ain’t much,” he wrote.


Okowa’s aide fired back at Basketmouth for “encouraging Portable’s misbehaviour”.

“Basketmouth is part of the people encouraging Portable to be misbehaving all in the name of fame,” he said.

“Can Basketmouth permit his child to behave like Portable?”

Portable, whose real name is Habeeb Okikiola, has been in the news for controversial reasons since he came into the limelight.


The Ogun state police command had invited him for allegedly brutalizing the young man.
