Popular Nigerian musician Habeeb Okikiola, who is professionally known as Portable, has contacted David Adeleke, better known by his stage name Davido, via direct messaging (DM) to request a part in his song.
Recall that Portable has already requested verses other top superstars such as Wizkid and Burna Boy, although he hasn’t gotten any reply from the big guns.
After earlier requests to Wizkid and Burna Boy were ignored, Portable turned to Instagram once more to plead for just one verse from Davido.
Portable posted a video of himself begging Davido to listen to him because he already had a chorus prepared. He also uploaded a screenshot with voice notes from their chat.
The self-styled ‘Wahala Musician’ tweeted: ‘@davido Ogun Owo Music industry Carry Me Trabaye Bless me with one verse.
Those who help you won’t stress you out. I heard the ZAZUU IKA OF AFRICAN CHORUS. Dr. ZEH Nation is greatly inspired by numerous people.
Davido simply greeted him as “Zazuuu Zazuu” in response to his request.
