3 Ways Portable's 'One Million Boys' Outburst Could Affect His Career

Habeeb Okikiola, who is known professionally as Potable had in a now-deleted viral video alleged that he created the dangerous criminal gang called "One Million Boys" in Lagos State. The post attracted different reactions and wide condemnations among his fans. Sequel to the trending video, in no doubt, this indicting statement could possibly affect Portable's career in the following ways.

1. It could kill his musical career

Undoubtedly, singer Portable is one of the fast-rising musicians in the Nigerian entertainment industry. He came to fame when he never thought he would. His fan base increased sporadically overnight and his name had become a common sensation in the streets of Nigeria. A lot of people had love him and his style of music, but his recent statement about the dreadful 'one million boys' had turned off a lot of people's interest away from him. Although he had deleted the video and debunked his previous claims, many people still believe he talks too much and may remove him from their list of favorite artists.

2. His affiliation with top brands in Nigeria

Since Portable is also a brand promoter and product marketer, another way I think his previous 'one million boys' statement could affect his career is in the area of affiliating with top and reputable brands in Nigeria. Many top brands who are looking for product promoters and brand ambassadors need people who have integrity are not questionable in character. It is said that Portable talks too much and his recent statement about the one million boys could make him loose some business deals with top brands in Nigeria.

3. His collaboration with top artists

You may recalled that after he made that claim, a few artists and music promoters took to their handles to distance themselves from the singer. The popular music promoter, Sam Larry didn't hesitate to distance himself from Portable's claim. Sam Larry said he just assisted Portable with his trip because he is a music promoter. In the same vein, Portable may not be able to feature other top stars in his subsequent songs and this could affect his career negatively. Guys, what are your thoughts on this?
