According to the pressman, he did not like the way Osimhen spoke to his coach, and his actions made little or no difference to the way controversial singer Portable would have behaved.

Otitoju noted that he never expected such derogatory words to come out from Osimhen’s mouth but he understands that people can react badly when others lie against them.

In his words:

“I didn’t like the way Osimhen spoke. He spoke as if there’s no difference between him and Portable. He was using all kinds of gutter languages. I expected him to be far more responsible than to open his mouth in that manner but at the same time when somebody lies against you, you can really get angry. Osimhen overreacted but I think Finidi had to go.”
