In the snippet from the IG live, Portable bragged about being more successful than Davido. The Zazu star called OBO a failure and noted that he makes headlines and trends more than the Unavailable crooner.

In his words:

“Na una dey trend me? Na una dey post me? Shey na una dey shoot my video? Na una dey promote me? For where you dey for your house, ask your neighbours, dem know me nau. I dey trend more than you nau. All your money, all your packaging, everything, forget it! I’m not a failure, Bro! I’m not a failure! I’m a winner, I’m not a failure. If you try me, you go lose. I will never mingle with failures, you are a failure.”

Portable was wrong - Media expert

In a chat with Legit.ng, a Nigerian social media expert, Tobi Crackit, shared his thoughts on the drama between Davido and Portable. He said:

"I don’t think Davido is in search of clout, he is just one that likes being involved in the success of others. Most celebrities don’t do that on this side of the world.
If Davido hadn’t reached out to Portable and he shuns him if they meet, won't people call him proud? Dammed if you do, dammed if you don’t. Let him do him, Portable is wrong, and more people will now keep him at arms length."
