Nigerian artist Portable, known for his controversial persona, has taken the opportunity to share a valuable message with his fellow celebrities. Through a series of candid videos posted on his official Instagram page, Portable has delivered a passionate plea to his peers in the entertainment industry, urging them to abandon artificial personas and prioritize the construction of homes.
The trigger for Portable’ s heartfelt message was the public outcry surrounding the location of Mohbad’ s final resting place, which many considered unsuitable. Using his platform, Portable expressed his concerns about the prevalence of fake lives among celebrities.
Portable candidly disclosed that he has personally faced criticism for building a house in a modest area. However, he countered these critiques by revealing a well- kept secret: he owns numerous properties, with approximately ten mansions in various locations.
In his words stated; ” People used to insult me, saying I built a house in a modest area. Do you know how many houses I have in such areas? Various types of mansions, like around ten, not all my properties are known. I’ ve even acquired land and started building in the Lekki Ajah area. I’ m also in the process of purchasing a house near Osapa London; I’ ve paid 15%, we still have 85% to go. I’ ve acquired so many things. “
Additionally, Portable implored well- known figures in the entertainment industry to stop feigning affluence, as many of their followers look up to them as role models. He emphasized that some of these celebrities lack permanent residences and might face undignified burials if they do not prioritize securing a permanent residence.
” Lower the volume of your fake lives so that your supporters don’ t mistake you for mentors. Some individuals will end up being buried beside gutters due to their fake lifestyles. If you die without owning a house or a place to call your own, you’ ll put us in a difficult position. You’ ll post houses claiming you bought them, cars you never really bought, covering for your friends. Not all celebrities own houses or cars; some don’ t even have a place to stay. Some folks store all their belongings in their cars. If you’ re a wealthy celebrity, flaunt it; we can differentiate between the genuinely affluent and the pretenders. Some will still be buried beside gutters. “
He continued by saying; ” When some people pass away, despite all their boasts about Lekki, they won’ t be interred there. Even in less privileged areas, they’ ll still end up beside gutters because they didn’ t invest in land, let alone build on it. “
Shortly after the video surfaced online, netizens have taken to the comment section to opine their respective thoughts.
