Nigerian singer, Habeeb Okikiola, better known by his stage name, Portable, has asked Burna Boy to make a song with him instead of copying him.
Portable who is known for the hit track, Zazu, said the Grammy Award winner has been making use of some phrases that are part of his mannerisms.
In a video posted on Instagram on Wednesday, the grey-haired Portable showed Burna Boy saying the words, “akoi grace, akoi mercy, akoi blessing, akoi space, akoi biza biza. Blessing follow you,” which he claims are his.
He also referenced a tweet where Burna Boy posted a picture of Portable and captioned it, “Deep down I really want this to be my album cover. Love, Damini.”
Portable went on to ask the Grammy award winner to collaborate with him, instead of using him for “promotion.”
“Uncle Burna abeg, shey you wan help me ni or you wan rip me. I use God beg you, shey make we sing ni abi you just dey use me do promotion. Na so you use my picture promote your album. Now you come dey sing akoi grace, akoi mercy, blessing follow me.
“Abeg, make we make song abeg. No ripping o, uncle Burna make we collabo. No rip me,” he said in a video also posted
He further wrote in the caption, “Need to know what’s up. Let’s link up, this is not a cruise matter @burnaboygram. Street ti take over. Akoi Industreet. Let’s give them 1 banger. Akoi Grace, Akoi space, Akoi mercy, Akoi blessing Akoi Bizza Bizza. No Ripping Zone.”
