Portable out with new song after leaving police custody

Controversial singer, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, wasted no time in getting back to his music career after his recent release from police custody.

The artist shared a snippet of his upcoming song, titled “Spiderman,” just hours after being released.

The “Zazuu” hitmaker, who gained attention for his viral video evading arrest by scaling over a gate, responded to his recent troubles with a diss track. Portable’s arrest stemmed from his failure to adhere to the payment plan for his G-Wagon SUV.

In the wake of the incident, Portable’s creativity took flight as he channeled his experiences into his music. The teaser for “Spiderman” hints at a song that embodies his resilient spirit and ability to overcome obstacles, echoing the theme of his escapade captured in the viral video.

‘’According to him, the cause of death cannot be determined. He gave a lot of reasons. He said by the time they conducted the test, the body had decomposed and that it is not possible for them to determine the cause of death. So the summary he is saying is that the cause of death cannot be ascertained and when you say the cause of death cannot be ascertained, it means it is suspicious, it is not clear, no particular reason. He also went further to say that it may be attributed to reaction to certain drugs administered on him before he died. Again he then qualified that to say he does not know whether it is those drugs that actually led to his death.”

Wahab also mentioned that facts such as the late singer’s disagreement with his wife, Wunmi, as well as Sam Larry were also presented in court by a witness.

Recall that the 27-year-old singer died in controversial circumstances on September 12, 2023. He was buried the next day in Ikorodu. His body was however exhumed on September 21 for an autopsy to be carried out on it to determine the cause of his death.
