Portable, one of the raves of the moment in the Nigerian music space has disclosed the reason for dropping out of school.
Portable, who rose into stardom in December 2021 after the release of his hit song dubbed ‘Zazoo Zeh‘ which features the guest appearances of Nigerian rapper Olamide and dancer Poco Lee revealed that he left school to focus on his music career because music is a money-making machine.
The controversial singer, in an interview with Jahbless on his podcast, Jahbless Original Intelligence, said that he knew right from the start how much wealth music could give him so he faced it full-time.
“Music brings money and is a fast money-making machine.
“If you sing you must have money unless you’re not good at it, if you’re a musician, you must be rich. I observed that I make a lot of money whenever I sing.”
The Zeh Nation boss added that before his fame in December, he met some people who almost ended his career with ‘over-packaging’.
“You know if they don wicked you severally. So I brought the whole craziness into the music industry.
“Even if you want to do business with someone who reaps you off, make sure you let them know that you are aware of the kind of person they are but you still want to do business but they should also be mindful that you are not weak,” he said.
“They know say I sabi sing but they did not open the door. I have met a lot of people that said I’m good but it all ended there. They will sign you and keep you in a room, even when you meet influential people who intend to sponsor you but they will kill your career with over-packaging.”
