Portable also expressed joy at the fact that young people in Nigeria see him as an inspiration. A lot of youths copy his hairstyle and the singer disclosed that he was almost angered when people started mimicking him but would maintain his cool after discovering that it all came with his fame and success.
Discussing about female artists in the country, Portable described himself as a legend and would love to do collaborations with superstar female musicians like Tiwa Savage and Asa. He also called on established male acts like Wizkid, Davido, and Burna Boy to help launch him into mainstream entertainment just like YBNL boss Olamide, did with Zazzu Zeh his hit track.
