Zazu: Olamide Collaborated With Me Because I Was Popular – Portable

Against belief that Afrobeat rapper, Olamide helped him climb the ladder of fame by collaborating with him on the viral song, ‘Zazu’, controversial Nigerian singer, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, has boasted that he was already popular before the YBNL boss jumped on the remix in 2021.

According to Portable, Olamide would have ignored him if Zazu was not known worldwide before the collaboration.

He also pointed out that he is not riding on the wave of Zazu, adding that he has released other hit songs and two albums since then.

Portable spoke in the latest episode of the Bae U Barbi show, Curiosity Made Me Ask.

He said, “Since when we did dropped ‘Zazu’ with Baddo [Olamide], that one has gone [sic]. I am the one they [fans] are listening to, I am dropping back to back. If you don’t drop again, they will forget you. If I don’t drop again, they won’t hear me. That is why I am putting more energy.

“It is because I was popular that made Olamide help me. If I wasn’t popular, they won’t help me. ‘Zazu’ blew worldwide. My freestyle went viral” [sic].
