Portable, fast-rising Nigerian singer, has called out Burna Boy for using his picture to promote his album
Last month, the ‘African Giant’ crooner shared an artwork showing Portable dressed like a typical cleric.
Burna Boy had said “deep down”, he would love to have the artwork — which appeared to be a photoshopped picture of Portable — as the cover for ‘Love Damini’, his much-awaited album.
In an Instagram post on Wednesday, the ‘Zazoo Zeh’ crooner said he would not tolerate alleged attempts by Burna Boy to “rip me of my content”.
Buttressing his point, Portable shared a viral video showing Burna Boy repeating lines mostly used by him without crediting him.
The singer also alleged that the popular lines used by Burna Boy was his intellectual property.
He also called on the ‘Ye’ singer to collaborate with him for a project if he likes his music and lifestyle.
” I don come with my wahala. Uncle Burna Boy abeg shey you wan help me ni abi you wan rip me. Abeg shey make sing ni abi you just wan dey use me dey do promotion? Na so you use my picture to promote your album,” he said in a mixture of Pidgin and Yoruba.
“Now you come dey use blessing dey follow me, na me get am. Abeg make we link up abeg. Uncle Burna abeg make we collabo abeg, no ripping.”
