Portable Mocks Ogun Roads During American Visit


Renowned Nigerian rapper, singer, and songwriter Portable Omolalomi recently made headlines during his visit to America, where he humorously highlighted the deplorable condition of roads in Ogun State, Nigeria.


While at a car depot in the United States, Portable was seen inspecting a massive vehicle with oversized tires, which he enthusiastically recommended for motorists back home in Ogun State.

 He quipped that such a robust vehicle would be ideal for navigating the state’s notoriously poor roads without any issues.

In a video that has since gone viral, Portable commented, “This kind of vehicle fits Roads in Sango (in Ogun). 



This vehicle fits Ogun Road. If we take this vehicle to Sango, we will paint Lekki red.”


 His remarks have sparked conversations on social media about the state of infrastructure in Ogun State.




Portable, whose real name is Habeeb Okikiola, has been making waves in the Nigerian music industry since his breakthrough hit “Zazu Zeh” featuring Pocolee and Olamide in December 2021. 


Born and raised in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Portable has released several other popular tracks including “Kuku Do Ritual,” “Hello Baby,” and “Get Money First.” 


Despite his success, he has not shied away from addressing issues back home, often using his platform to comment on societal challenges.


Before rising to fame, Portable had been in the music industry for several years, collaborating with various notable Nigerian artists. 


He was born in Abeokuta, Ogun State, and is of Yoruba heritage.


 Portable completed his primary and secondary education in Ogun State but dropped out to pursue his passion for music.


Currently residing in Lagos, Nigeria, Portable continues to build his career while remaining connected to his roots. 


Recall that his recent comments in America serve as a reminder of the infrastructural issues that many Nigerian states face, bringing attention to the need for improvement and investment in better road conditions.


The state government has proudly proclaimed that 600 kilometers of roads had been constructed over the past five years.


Yet, the reality on the ground painted a different picture: potholes and crumbling asphalt dotted the landscape, making daily commutes a challenging ordeal for residents.
