Nigerian musician, Olumuyiwa Olofinkuade Olajide, popularly known as Jazzman Olofin has offered his two cents following Buzzing street-hop singer, Habeeb Okikiola, aka Portable and music promoter Kogbagidi persistent fall-out.
Recall that the ‘Zazoo Zehh’ crooner caused a fracas last year after he called out popular dancer and hypeman Poco Lee for monetary and intellectual property theft.
In a turn of events, the singer in a trending video was seen with a baseball bat in his hands, fuming and asking that the promoter to provide the car he was given recently by a fan.
In another video, Portable was seen complaining angrily that he was being cheated by Kogbagidi.
Weighing into the issue Jazzman Olofin has urged that both parties have to understand each other for them to keep making progress.
According to Olofin, people have risen with speed and have fallen in the same manner many times.
He said if people who understood the rudiments of music don’t help portable and his management sort out their differences, there would be little or no progress to record.
The Singer also pointed out that Portable seemed to be fighting battles both on the inside and on the outside. According to him, He’s seeing things only him can see, part of which is the fear of being cheated.
He added that Kogbagidi is also fighting a battle not to lose the business they’ve invested their time and money in.
In an Instagram post on Friday, he said;
On PORTABLE. My take:
“I tried to ignore the matter like it’s not really my business, but then I’m only human: I see, I feel and I know.
“I’ve seen people rise up in full speed and I’ve seen them fall with same speed without even remembering things that happened they they were up.
“I think it’s time the people who actually understand the music business sat Portable and his management / promoter down and help them iron out confusing grey areas of their relationships so that all parties will know their rights and the lines not to cross for the sake of progress.
“No doubt Portable, Kogbagidi and Poco Lee all need each other. They have a relationship that works like magic, it brought them massive success within few weeks, and trust me relationships that work like pure magic is hard to come by.
“Some people never see it at all in their lifetime. When you have relationships that work like magic it’s NOT your doing or plan, it’s just the grace of Almighty.
“Needless to say when you have a business that works magic you need to be careful not to destroy it with impatience and ego.”
“Portable seems to be fighting battles both on the inside and on the outside. He’s seeing things only him can see, part of which is the fear of being cheated.
“The management too seems to be fighting a battle not to lose the business they’ve invested their time and energy In (probably money too). It won’t be easy to create another “Portable”.”
“It won’t be fair for members of the public to be making fun of the battle going on between Portable and his management are facing just because they are good “contents” online. Portable and his management team needs your educational, moral and spiritual support so that among themselves they can have UNDERSTANDING, TRUST & LOYALTY. I believe everybody can be happy.”
