Nollywood actress Akinyanju Omobolarinde, better known as Ashabi, has spoken about why she decided to date controversial singer Portable.
Ashabi, who recently made headlines after welcoming a child with Portable, revealed in an interview with @facetvafrica that she was initially worried about the backlash her relationship with the married singer would trigger.
The new baby is Portable’s fifth child, while Ashabi is the fourth baby mama, though the Zazu crooner has pronounced the actress his official wife.
The actress said she chose her own happiness over whatever backlash that may come with her dating Portable
She admitted that she never considered being in a relationship with a fellow celebrity, but she could no longer resist as fate brought one to her.
She said her relationship with the singer is a new beginning, emphasising that he is a very supportive partner.
The actress said she was scared that people would taunt and abuse her when she started dating the Odogwu Bitters ambassador.
She, however, said she stuck to her guns because Portable was bringing her happiness.
According to her, she is happy because Portable makes her happy because, saying if he is not there for her, the elaborate naming ceremony of their child would not have been possible.
Meanwhile, Portable has claimed that he has slept with 10 of his wife’s advisers. According to him, these people are the ones advising his wife to leave him.
In a swift reaction, Nigerians urged him to release the names and pictures of those 10 advisers. They added that women will come out to castigate Portable and then hook up with him later at night.
Other Nigerians believe the singer is doing this to ensure that Nigerians speak more about him. They added that Portable will be in the limelight for years to come because he knows how to keep people talking about him.
