“Why I dropped out of school” – Singer, Portable
Fast rising Nigerian singer, Habeeb Okikiola, professionally known as Portable, has opened up about why he dropped out of school.
The Zazu Zeh star in a recent interview on Jahbless Original Intelligence Podcast, said he left school to focus on his music career because music is a money-making machine.
According to him, he was certain he would make it through music so he decided to drop out of school to focus on music.
“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.” He said.
Speaking further, Portable noted that before his rise to stardom in December last year, he met some people who killed 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 rips 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.
“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.” He added.
