The troublemaker: Portable raises fresh dust, says ‘Davido cheated me… used me to trend’





Portable, the controversial Nigerian singer, has resumed his criticism of Davido, the Afrobeats star.


The pair linked up at a restaurant in Atlanta earlier this month. The 30-year-old also appreciated Davido for gifting him a brand-new pair of luxurious Dior sneakers.

But after their hangout, the singer claimed the Afrobeats star promised to make a song with him but allegedly did not deliver on the promise.


In a recent social media rant, the singer accused Davido, 31, of chasing clout with their hangout in the United States.


Portable argued that Davido “took advantage of me to gain more popularity”, adding that he did not provide any financial support or a verse for a collaboration.


“Davido ripped me, you invited me out for a dinner in America, but you did not give me a verse or money, you just used me to trend. You should have given me at least $10,000,” the street-hop singer is heard ranting in a video.

The ‘Zazoo Zeh’ hitmaker has a long history of feuding with fellow singers. TheCable Lifestyle recently examined a list of celebrities he has had feuds with since he gained fame.
