Music artiste, Habeeb Okikiola, also known as Portable, has revealed that he was paid to endorse the All Progressive Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
Portable received backlash on social media after declaring support for APC in the upcoming Osun State governorship election on his Instagram page on Wednesday.
In the video posted, he also asked Nigerians to vote for Tinubu in the 2023 presidential election.
Firing back at critics, the 27-year-old said he was only doing his job, as the ruling party had paid him to support its candidates.
“If they pay you money, you have to work. I was once paid to insult Tinubu during the protests. That was a long time ago. Now, APC has said Akoi Tinubu.
“If they pay you, do your job, no ripping. When I was asked to insult Tinubu, I collected my money and did my job. Now Tinubu is the next. They’re the ones that gave me money, and I must do the work for the money I collected. Akoi APC,” he said in Yoruba.
