Controversial street hop artist Portable has publicly expressed his gratitude to rapper Olamide for being a pivotal figure in his remarkable journey to success.

He sponsored me without asking for anything in return. Olamide is the only guy in the music industry that showed me love. God used him to bless me. I’m from the streets, I used to perform for N200, but I thank God for sending Olamide to me.”
