According to him, the singer is talented, and he is just lucky that he shot into the limelight and has been doing well since.
On the controversies surrounding the singer, Neophlames pointed out that Portable is just someone who lacks home training and his background is very rough, brought up on the streets.
Even though Olamide also says he is from the streets, the journalist noted that Portable is from a hard-core street, different from where Olamide came from.
He also added that Portable most likely has no educational background, which has influenced his way of life to the point of calling out people who helped him on his journey to fame.

Popular ace Nigerian singer Olamide seemed to have had enough with his constant linking to the controversial singer Portable.
The notoriously loose-mouthed singer had talked his way into trouble on Monday, July 18, when he took to his Instagram page to claim he was the founder of the vicious cult group "1 million boys".
The YBNL boss, in a subtle manner, took to his Insta-story to drop a message that distanced himself from Dr Zeh's ways.
