Habeeb Okikiola, better known by his stage name Portable, a Nigerian singer, has denied any personal participation in the car accident involving his assistant that claimed the life of a bike rider.
A motorcyclist was struck by one of the popular “Zazoo crooner’s” assistants on Tuesday, according to the Ogun State Police Command.
The driver was accompanying the singer’s Range Rover jeep, according to the command public relations officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, who confirmed the incident in a telephone conversation with Vanguard.
It was learned that the car’s driver, a member of Portable’s staff, was out and about when the tragic incident took place.
Theresa, the manager of Portable, commented on the incident and revealed that the victim passed away after being taken to the hospital.
But in response, Portable distanced himself from the situation, saying in a video, “No be me use my motor kill anyone oh, thank God o, every disappointment is a blessing.”
He, however, maintained that he went to the hospital to help, but the victim died.
