Popular Nigerian street singer Habeeb Okikiola, famously known as Portable, has achieved a significant milestone in his career by securing his very first international award in the United States of America. The talented artist, who is currently in Russia, has garnered recognition as he was honored with the prestigious Best New Award at the 2023 African Entertainment Award held in the United States.
Portable’s journey to international acclaim has been a remarkable one. Despite not receiving any international awards previously, he persevered and continued to make his mark in the music industry. His victory at the 2023 African Entertainment Award stands as a testament to his undeniable talent and dedication to his craft.
This achievement is all the more significant considering that in 2022, Portable was notably denied recognition by the Headies Awards due to controversial remarks he made after being nominated. Now, in 2023, he has not only proved his critics wrong but has also demonstrated that talent and resilience can lead to international recognition and success.
Portable’s story serves as an inspiration to up-and-coming artists, reminding them that determination and a commitment to their art can ultimately lead to the highest accolades, even after facing setbacks along the way. His journey from the streets of Nigeria to the international stage is a testament to the power of music and the potential for artists to break boundaries and reach new heights in their careers.
