Portable was nominated in the ‘Rookie of the Year’ category alongside AV, Fave, Magixx and Ugoccie. He will also slug it out with Bella Shmurda, Mohbad, Naira Marley, and Goya Menor among others in the ‘Best Street-Hop Artiste’ category.

The singer, who was seen sitting shirtless in a car while speaking Yoruba language, further threatened to kill other nominees if he loses to the in both categories.
Portable said, “Thank God, Headies has nominated me for best street-hop artiste of the year. Who wan check am?”
“I’m still the owner of the rookie of the year award. Who doesn’t know Zazuu? Aboki, Hausa, Igbo, who doesn’t know my song? Even those abroad listen to me.
“All those awards, I own them. Whoever is given those awards apart from me, I’ll ask them to kill the person. I’ll just ask them to kill you.
“Give unto Caeser what is for Caeser. My award, give it to me. Don’t give my award to another person, if you do, you will die.”
It is not yet known if he is merely joking or serious about the death threat.
