Emerging Nigerian musician Young Duu has made serious accusations against his former label head, Portable, alleging physical abuse. The dispute between Portable and Young Duu escalated when Portable criticized the 20-year-old artist for booking a music show for N70,000.
In the aftermath of their heated argument, Portable decided to sever ties with Young Duu and demanded the return of all investments made on the young artist’s behalf, including a N3 million automobile. This marked the end of their professional relationship.
Even after parting ways with his record label, Young Duu has continued to speak out about the physical abuse he allegedly endured during his time under Portable’s management. In a live session, he revealed that he had been subjected to violent attacks by Portable, who even went so far as to send people to assault him in public.
