Portable, a popular street-hop artist, has expressed a desire to win a Grammy award in his lifetime.
Portable stated in an interview with Timi Agbaje that he hopes to win the ‘Best Artiste in Africa’ category at the world’s most prestigious musical award event, despite the fact that such a category does not exist.
According to him, he hopes to win the award with his title ‘Ika of Africa’
“That thing I’d want to do that’ll make me truly fulfilled is to win a Grammy. I want to win the category of ‘Best Artiste in Africa’. Best artiste o! Number 1!! That Ika of Africa, I want to use the title to collect that award,” he said.
The ‘Zazu’ crooner insisted he had to be honoured by the international music body noting he didn’t want any of the local awards being ‘sold up and down’.
“If I don’t collect an award, ah!!! International award o! Not all those local awards they sell up and down. You know the industry has caucus but destiny has no competition. But if they said we should compete? What do they sing?
“Those people collecting awards, what are they singing? Can you sing with live band? Can you sing good song? Can you sing reality song? Can’t you praise God? ….Ogun kee you!
Revealing the female artiste he can’t wait to do a collabo with he added: “There are several female artistes I’d like to collaborate with. But let me not lie, I love Asa.”
