On Friday 31st March, the Nigerian police in Ogun state arrested the controversial Nigerian singer, Portable.
On Monday 3rd April, the police released the singer on bail from custody. The music star went live on social media after his release.
He calmly addressed his numerous fans, admitting that he had learned a lesson. He also thanked his manager for her help.
They have swapped our Portable o!
The Shakara Oloje crooner gave massive thanks to his God for delivering him from the hands of the law. In his own words, he said “I have learned a lesson.”
Due to this, Netizens began to see him as a staunch God lover and somehow managed to forget all the fetish things he had done in the past.
