Street music sensation, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, has expressed his grievances over his exclusion from the Renewed Hope Concert held at the MKO Abiola National Stadium, Abuja, on Thursday.
According to reports, no fewer than 46 music artistes performed at the Renewed Hope Concert in honour of the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, and his Vice, Kashim Shettima, as they prepare for their inauguration on 29 May.
The leaders of the youth wing of the All Progressives Congress, including Tinubu’s son, Seyi, announced the show to celebrate young people for their contribution to the party’s victory during the general elections.
The concert saw a display of performances from top artistes, including Buju, Brymo, Fireboy, Asake, Naira Marley, Tony Tetuila, Seyi Vibes, among others.

In a now-viral video, the Zazzoo crooner expressed his disappointment over being snubbed despite supporting Tinubu vigorously prior to his election.
He claimed that those artistes who got invited to the concert never campaigned for the President-elect as much as he did.
He said: “They have ripped me. I used to shout up and down: Akwe [There is] Tinubu, and when I do so, people insult me. But I continued posting it.
“They did not post you, Uncle Tinubu. We were the ones that fought for you. We fought for you in Lagos, everywhere, including online.”
Portable, however, stated that he knows that the President-elect may have considered him for the event but for some middlemen who snubbed him.
