Controversial hip hop artiste, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, has dropped a new single, sharing his brief experience at Ilaro Prison in Ogun State.
Daily Trust had reported how a magistrate’s court sitting in Ifo Local government area of Ogun granted him bail but remanded him pending perfection of the bail conditions.
The Zazoo crooner was brought before the court on a five-count charge bordering on assault and stealing.
He had been detained since Friday following a petition written by one Osimusi Emmanuel.
Appearing before the court on Monday, Portable pleaded not guilty to all the charges preferred against him.
Portable’s Counsel, Adodo Destiny, had prayed the court to grant the singer bail.
Delivering his ruling on application for bail made by his counsel, Magistrate A.S Soneye said, the offenses are bailable and granted him bail with bail bond of N300,000, two sureties who must reside within the jurisdiction of the honorable court.
The court, however ruled that the defendant be transferred to the Ilaro correctional centre, pending the time his bail requirements are met.
The case was adjourned to the 26th of April for the commencement of trial.
Following his release, Portable took Instagram page on Wednesday to preview a new song that highlights his encounter with the law.
In the video captioned ‘Federal Government Liabiality,’ the singer stated that he wasn’t a prisoner while also expressing the power of the law enforcement agencies he claims are second only to God.
“Them carry me go prison I no collect cloth. I am not a prisoner. Talk behind my back and see me call the police. After God na government,” he said in the single mixed with Yoruba and pidgin.
Portable’s new single follows the path of Naira Marley who famously released his hit single ‘Soapy’ after his short stay in Kirikiri Prison.
