In a recent statement, Nigerian-American musicians claimed that Nigerian singer Portable had mistreated them and had stolen almost $30,000 from them.
This occurs a few days after it was claimed that the Nigerian singer was attacked during a recent performance.
While full details regarding the cause of the altercation have not been made public by the police authority investigating the matter, the alleged victims, who are Nigerian-American citizens, have released a video narrating their side of the story.
According to them, Portable was invited to perform at an event and an issue arose, leading to a misunderstanding.
However, they claim Portable refused to reason with them and even threatened violence, stating they shouldn’t get close to him as he might hit them, potentially causing death.
The statement made by the duo alleges that Portable assaulted them in the presence of the police.
One of them claimed he was bitten by the singer, and also, one of their crew members was arrested and detained.
Following this, Portable allegedly took their belongings, including various items such as shirts, glasses, and the alleged sum of $30,000, which they had planned to use to buy a car.
The full statement of the Nigerian-American artists is contained in the attached video below.
