Fast rising Nigeria singer, Portable has been threatened with disqualification by the organizers of the Headies, a prominent music awards event, after he threatened to kill co-nominees for the 2022 edition.
Portable, who was nominated in the categories of ‘Rookie of the Year’ and ‘Best Street-Hop Artiste,’ threatened to kill anyone who won any of the categories in his place.
