Early Life and Career Beginnings

Portable Zeh is an indigene of Ogun state, who decided to pursue a career in Yoruba rap music. His passion led him to leave his hometown for Lagos, where he faced numerous challenges before catching his big break with YBNL Records boss, Olamide. Portable released a hit track titled “Zazoo Zeh,” featuring Olamide and Poco Lee, which quickly became a sensation, earning him widespread recognition and opportunities.

His fame expanded, leading to performances at high-profile events, including AY‘s show on Easter Sunday, April 17. At this show, the Nigerian socialite E-Money handed Portable bundles of naira, further solidifying his status in the music industry. The rapper’s popularity also facilitated meetings with prominent figures like Wizkid, Timaya, Burna Boy, and Olamide. Additionally, he had the honor of meeting the Ooni of Ile Ife, Adeyeye Ogunwusi, at the Ooni’s palace.

Rise to Fame and Controversies

Portable’s rise to fame was accompanied by a series of controversies that marked his journey in the entertainment industry.

  • Feud with Poco Lee: Portable Zeh’s first major controversy involved a public spat with Nigerian dancer Poco Lee during the Livespot conference on December 17, 2022. He accused Poco Lee of attempting to defraud him by taking a significant portion of money Wizkid sprayed on him during a performance. Additionally, Portable claimed that Poco Lee had wrongly taken credit for his hit song, “Zazoo Ze.” This dispute led to public outbursts and, eventually, a reconciliation video that went viral.
  • Alleged Sexual Assault in Kenya: In January 2022, Portable Zeh faced serious allegations of sexual assault during a visit to Nairobi, Kenya, for the “Portable Zazoo Reloaded Show.” Reports suggested that Portable and his crew harassed and assaulted women who declined an invitation to stay overnight at their residence. The singer apologized for the incident, but this controversy added to the growing concerns about his behavior.
  • Exit from Kogbagidi’s Label: Portable’s tumultuous relationship with his show promoter, Kogbagidi, escalated to a point where he exited the label after accusing Kogbagidi of financial disagreements and other issues. This incident resulted in a street fight in the Ota area of Ogun State, captured in a viral clip.
  • Canada Visa Denial: Portable faced another setback when a Canadian-based Nigerian MC, Morris, decided to drop him from a scheduled performance in Canada. Morris cited concerns about Portable’s temperament and his history of sacking managers as reasons for denying his visa application.
  • Multiple Fights at Shows: Portable made headlines for getting into fights at various shows, including altercations with fans in Benin and a dispute with a DJ at a club over the handling of his song.
  • Involvement with “One Million Boys”: Portable stirred controversy by claiming to be the founder of the notorious gang group “One Million Boys” in a video posted on July 18, 2022. This led to a police probe, and Portable later withdrew the statement, stating that “One Million Boys” were his fan base.
  • Headies Nomination Loss: Due to Portable’s uncouth behavior and online threats, he lost his nominations for the Headies Hip-hop award as the “Rookie of the year” and “Best Street Artist.” The Headies Organisers dropped him over his misconduct and affiliations with the notorious gang.
