Street singer, Portable is forgiven by promoter Kogbagidi over his social media outbursts
International show promoter, Taoreed Quadri (Kogbagidi) has forgiven rising singer, Portable over the singer’s dirty fight with dancer Poco Lee, who he accused of taking the credit for his fast trending song, ‘Zazu Zee’ and failing to give him a fair share of the money Wizkid sprayed during their recent concert.
This followed the intervention of top entertainers and the apology of Portable to Poco Lee, Olamide and Kogbagidi over the allegations he levelled against Poco Lee on Tuesday. Kogbagidi had earlier sent Portable packing from the hotel room he rented for him for his social media outburst against Poco Lee.
Kogbagidi, in a video shared on his Instagram page, was seen helping the Zazu Zeh singer, who was seen kneeling before him, up and embracing him.
Sharing the video, Kogbagidi wrote:
“Like they say ” we rise by lifting up others “. We are all in the learning process.

Earlier Portable, in a trending video on Tuesday, had accused Poco Lee of collecting his money and receiving credit for their song. The self-acclaimed ‘Werey Olorin’ (mad singer) slammed Poco Lee, real name Pascal Iweh, for ripping him off the dollar bills Wizkid sprayed on him at a show on Sunday and taking credits for his song.
During the Wizkid’s show at LiveSpot on Sunday, Poco Lee opened the floor with his hype while Portable later sang his song, which got Wizkid bringing a wad of hundred dollar bills which he sprayed on Portable while Poco Lee stopped dancing to pick them up.
It was Poco Lee that linked Portable with his Idol Olamide, a move that led to the YBNL boss collaborating on the track. The song has since been one of the major highlights of the month, with heavy promotions by Kogbagidi (Quadri Taoreed) including a planned promotional video.
But Poco Lee, in his reaction to Portable’s claims, took to his Instagram page to reply to him with a meme video of social media pastor, Solomon, indicating ‘no comment’. He however indicated that the money sprayed by Wizkid ($3,000) was shared by everyone, with Portable getting $600.
But Kogbagidi, in an instant reaction to the Portable’s Tiktok outburst sent him out of his hotel room and posted it on Instagram.
“Unruly and unprofessional conduct is always expected from upcoming. You never can tell what goes on in their mind or head. I’m shocked and embarrassed at this point. Do I need to fix your career and your head at the same time?.”
Hours later, Portable took to his Instagram page to apologise to Poco Lee, Kogbagidi, and Olamide, stating that he’ll never let them down again.
He wrote, “My sincere apologies go out to my benefactors @olamide @poco_lee and @kogbagidi. I am in the learning process, I know better now.
“Kindly forgive me and pardon the street in me. Much love and appreciation to all my fans. Words cannot express my feelings right now.
“Thanks for the intervention and words of comfort. Now I know I’m not on this journey alone. Love you guys. I will never let you down again. Expect more from your boy. Zeh nation.”
