The Headies Academy’s decision was necessitated by Portable’s recent running of the law where he claimed he is the founder of the deadly one million boys gang which terrorized Lagos citizens during the lockdown.

Portable would later refute this claim after it attracted wide criticism and led to a police investigation.
Portable has previously threatened to kill other nominees should he lose either of the two categories he was nominated for.
The Headies Academy’s decision to withdraw Portable’s nomination means that he won’t be getting a chance to win the Rookie of the Year and Best Street Hop which he was nominated for.
