Akinyanju Omobolarinde, aka Ashabi, the fiancée of popular singer Habeeb Okiki, aka Portable, has stated that she is not with the ‘Zazoo Zeh’ crooner for his money, contrary to popular belief.
In an interview with Saturday Beats, she stated, “He (Portable) has done many things for me but what stands out the most is the care and support he gives me. I am not here for the material things. I have produced movies and made my millions before meeting him. I have been a self-sponsored student even before I met him. I have been carrying responsibilities way back.”
Ashabi, who is also an actress, revealed that they plan to get married soon and she has no issues sharing him with other women. She said, “We have introduced our families and hope to get married soon. I am an entertainer and I have thought about getting married to him properly. I did not get pregnant by mistake. It was planned and I do not expect to have issues with any of his wives or other baby mamas. I see some comments that I want to snatch Portable but I am not here to snatch anyone. I am just a shareholder and I cannot take care of him alone because I have my career and child. I also want to work more and be famous.”
Responding to critics who often describe Portable as rough, the actress noted that the singer is a caring and understanding partner who is different off the stage. She said, “One cannot judge his personality from his performance because that is what he does for a living and he has to put in his best and energy. As my man, he has always been calm and caring. He is always available when I want to talk to him and he is a great listener. Those are some of the things I like the most about him.”
Also, she spoke about the movies she has produced so far. She said, “I produced my first movie, ‘Ato’ in 2020. I also co-produced another movie with Juwon Ayorinde titled ‘Iyanje’. I then produced a movie in 2022, ‘Side Chic’ followed by another one, ‘My Relative’, the same year. I also have a new movie about to drop. It is titled ‘Owo Sina.’
