“E go do pass the money dem pay am” – Reactions as Singer Portable strips to his boxers as he campaigns for APC

When Portable was photographed campaigning for the All Progressives Congress, he was only wearing his boxers in front of the statue of Obafemi Awolowo in Osogbo (APC).At the APC mega event in Osogbo for the re-election of Osun State Governor Adegboyega Oyetola, the controversial musician performed a rousing dance and, at one point, stripped down to his boxers and bowed as if to sit on Obafemi Awolowo’s statue.

Nigerians have expressed displeasure over the picture ever since it surfaced online. Awolowo’s heritage was allegedly disrespected by Portable’s actions in front of the statesman’s statue, according to many social media users.While there, keep in mind that Portable already disclosed that he received payment to favor the ruling party. This led several Twitter users to quip that the artist needed to be exceptional to offer APC value for their money.

Reaction, a twitter user wrote; “I’m not even Yoruba & I’m deeply offended by that crass display of disrespect and disregard for such a highly regarded Yoruba leader. Just look at this rubbish.”
