Asake is my mate, don’t compare him to Wizkid — Portable

Portable, in his usual manner of releasing short video clips on Instagram, has addressed the recent comparisons of Wizkid to Asake made by rival fans of Wizkid.

Portable outrightly claimed Asake is nowhere near Wizkid in every aspect of music. Rather, Portable is of the opinion that Asake is in the same category as he himself (Portable).

Portable described Wizkid as the “baba nla” (big father) of music, while he stated that he is the same mate as Asake because his success and that of Asake were both facilitated by Olamide.

The idea that Asake is currently better than Wizkid arose with the release of Wizkid’s latest single titled Bad To Me. A number of fans who were of the opinion that Wizkid did not do justice to the Amapiano instrumentals given to him by his producer claimed Asake would have done better on the beat than Wizkid. This appeared to be a fanbase bant at Wizkid and his fans however.
