Who is Zazu Portable?
Due to the fact that he was born on March 12, 1994 in Abeokuta, Habeeb Okikiola is currently the most prominent figure in Nigeria’s indigenous rap movement. However, the Yoruba-born rapper, singer, and songwriter is known in the industry by the alias “Portable Omolalomi,” which is a nickname.
The American rap songs of Dr. Dre, Tupac Shakur, The Notorious B.I.G., and Snoop Dogg, which he used to enjoy listening to on the sound cassette player that belonged to his father when he was still in elementary school, had a significant effect on him. He was so inspired by these musicians that he started writing rap songs whenever the mood struck him.
After that, following the rise of native rap singers such as Lord Of Ajasa, Dagrin, Danny Young, Olamide, QDot, and CDQ, he decided to make the switch to Yoruba rap and seek a career as a vocalist instead of continuing his career in native rap.
The song “Zazuu Zeh,” which Portable, Poco Lee, and Olamide all worked on together to create, has just been certified platinum. Portable has been making music for quite some time. The track by Portable, which is now at the top of several music charts in the nation and is well-liked by lovers of native rap in the country, has catapulted Portable to the forefront of the music industry, propelling the band to new heights of notoriety.
Son Of Shaku Shaku, Street Problem, Portablebaeby, and Wahala Musician are some of the acts that have recently reached the ranks of the most rapidly emerging acts in the country.
Portable was born on March 12, 1994 in Abeokuta, which is located in the state of Ogun; hence, he is 28 years old as of the year 2022.
His parents are Mr. and Mrs. Okikiola, both members of a Yoruba family hailing from Ogun State in the southwest region of Nigeria. Portable Omolalomi and all of his siblings were raised in a Muslim household from the time of their birth.
As a result, Portable Omolalomi became fluent in Yoruba as a child when he was born and nurtured in Abeokuta. This allowed him to communicate with his parents, classmates, neighbors, and extended family members.
To our great good fortune, Portable Omolalomi did not miss out on the opportunity to acquire a sound education throughout his formative years. His parents made it a priority to enroll him in the most prestigious public elementary and secondary schools in Abeokuta during his whole educational career. On the other hand, he decided against furthering his studies at a university and instead enrolled in a vocational training program at a local training facility.
Portable Omolalomi made the decision to go to Lagos State, which is known as the music capital of Africa, since he was under the impression that doing so would provide him with a better opportunity to achieve success in the profession.
During this time, Portable Omolalomi was writing brand new rap tunes and was looking for producers in Lagos to work with so that they could collaborate on some of them. On the mainland of Lagos, he kept working as an artisan so that he could pay for his expenses.
In spite of the fact that he had already written a few songs that were successful on the market, Omolalomi never wavered in his goal to establish himself as a top-tier performer in the industry. Prior to that, he was fortunate enough to have a chance encounter with his musical hero, Olamide, and it went very well for him.
Fortunately for him, Olamide recognized his ability and extended an invitation for him to work alongside dancer and recording artist Poco Lee on a project that will continue indefinitely. The song “Zazuu Zeh,” which was one of the components of the project and was made available to the public, was very well received.
After then, he has been propelled into the spotlight by the tune, which has proven to be famous in the industry because to its engaging lyrics and the catchphrase, Zazuu Zeh. Consequently, he has been thrust into the spotlight.
As a consequence of the success of the soundtrack, Omolalomi has been approached by a great number of the most successful artists in the business in regards to potential collaborations. The achievements that Portable achieved throughout his professional life had a significant bearing on his overall wealth.
He has recently moved to Lekki Island from the mainland of Lagos, where he had been living previously. Since that time, he has made his home in a spacious apartment located in the Lekki high-rise zone. However, he is currently having a serious relationship with a wonderful young lady by the name of Opeyemi, although he has not yet disclosed her identify to the rest of the world. Regularly, he makes the trip to Ogun State to visit with his parents and his siblings. In addition to this, there are rumors that he is the parent of a child who goes by the name of Iyanu Oluwa.
