Nigerian signer Portable has made headlines after going on a live video on Instagram where he called out record labels.
His target this time around was new singer, Shalipopi.
Portable showed during the live session that record labels were increasingly signing artists who lacked talent. He even went so far as to characterize some of the signees as thieves, clearly aimed at the up-and-coming musician Shalipopi.
He also urged record firms to focus their efforts on signing genuine talent rather than those involved in cyber fraud.
“Dem don dey sign thief. Dem dey sign person wey just come from EFCC
Efcc dey carry legit man? When you’re legit EFCC cannot touch you
Dem don dey sign thief. Dey no gree sign people wey get talent again.
“Omo e dey pain o. Make una use una money dey sign better people. No be people wey dey use bitcoin dey promote music.”
