Reacting in a video shared on his Instagram page, Portable fired back at his critics, saying he was only doing his job, as the ruling party had paid him to support its candidates.
The singe, who said he was once paid to insult Tinubu, revealed that he has changed his tune because he was paid by the APC.
“If they pay you money, you have to work. I was once paid to insult Tinubu during the protests. That was a long time ago. Now, APC has said Akoi Tinubu.
“If they pay you, do your job, no ripping. When I was asked to insult Tinubu, I collected my money and did my job. Now Tinubu is the next. They’re the ones that gave me money, and I must do the work for the money I collected. Akoi APC,” he said in Yoruba.
