The disqualification of singer Habeeb Okikiola who is popularly known as Portable from this year's Headies Awards has generated mixed reactions on several social media platforms.

Recall, that Portable's nomination was withdrawn by organizers of the event due to several infractions with the law. The most popular amongst them was his threats on the life of fellow nominees should he fail to win his categories.

Despite this, Portable says he is unfazed by the setback.

“I am a child of light. I have fame, I have money, I have cars, I have wives, I have children. I am rich. People know me everywhere. I don’t regret my actions,” he said in a video he shared on his Instagram page.

Portable was nominated in the ‘Rookie of the Year’ and ‘Best Street-Hop Artiste’ categories.
