Portable throws shade at Spyro

Portable is certain that he has the skills and adaptability necessary to work with musicians from various musical genres.


Portable, a well-known street performer, has voiced his discontent with Spyro after the latter said he would be unable to work with Portable.

Spyro made it plain in a Cool FM interview that Portable’s musical taste does not match the kind of music he produces, making a cooperation improbable.


“Not because I have an issue with him, but because our paths don’t cross. Our paths didn’t align. He wouldn’t be able to deliver the kind of music that I would write for him. Because it’s not his style. I think Portable is good o funny enough,” Spyro said.

He added, “It’s intentional when people do the kind of music that Portable does. It’s pretty much intentional. Someone walked up to me and said ‘You know, if you wanna make it you have to be at the extreme end. If you want to do good music, do it, let it be good. If you want to do whack music, let it be really whack. I think my writing style is different from his kind of music. And I think Portable can actually even do it. Trust me. I have listened to his songs that I am like Portable did this?”


Spyro’s comments on Portable’s incapacity to produce the type of music he writes for artists prompted a response from Portable. The street performer, who is renowned for his vivacious and upbeat acts, took offense to Spyro’s remarks and expressed his displeasure with the circumstance.

Spyro’s dismissal of Portable was met with a blunt, pidgin English retort from Portable, especially in light of Spyro’s own status as a non-A-lister in the music business.

“Are you whining me Apara or Spyro or what do they call you? You never make am you dey form ajebo. How many shows you don go? Don’t let them push you against helper,” Portable said.

“Come, that’s why I don’t do too many interviews because I know they will ask too many questions. Make you no go dey loose-guard so as not to misyarn. When they are calling the industry, you’ll now be forming voice. You are now packaging. See this one o. You this guinea fowl or what are you called? Come and let’s give you chorus make you blow more. Shey you dey whine ni? Go and ask your oga.

“Make you blow and let everybody see that you have. Nobody can mime your song. I have had too much songs, I blow. Your song cannot be mimed because it’s just one. I can sing all patterns of songs. You are saying no one can sing your pattern. You that they still carry to shows.”

The unexpected clash of musical tastes is highly anticipated by the fans and supporters of both performers.
