Fast-rising Nigerian internet sensation, Portable known in real life as Habeeb Okikiola has opened up on why he dropped out of school.
Speaking in a recent interview on Jahbless Original Intelligence Podcast, the self-acclaimed musician revealed that he ignored school to focus on music.
According to him, music is one of the money-making machines in the world and he knew from the start how much wealth music could give hence decided to opt for it full time.
He said, “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 however indicated that before attaining the spotlight last year in December, some people he met killed his career with ‘over packaging
In his words, “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.
“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.”
