No matter how much noise is around a person or thing, there are places that should befit the introduction of that thing or person. Portable has triggered a remembrance of the saying that the cap has to fit to wear it.  

It was a usual annual general conference of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), but most of them were not informed of the artistes that would grace their occasion.

The learned fellows had gathered, but one announcement appeared like a bitter leaf dropped into the pot of honey for them.

Not many saw it coming when some lawyers, who are part of the annual general conference on-going in Abuja, on Thursday staged a walk out after the controversial Nigerian singer, Portable, was announced as guest performer.


The programme tagged ‘Unbarred’ was held at the Velodrome, MKO Abiola Stadium. But portable to those lawyers was a ‘barred’ appearance.

All was going well and smooth until the NBA president, Yakubu Maikyau, gave a brief speech and a DJ entertained the lawyers before the controversial singer appeared on stage.


Spoilt My Day

Angered to see portable, many of the lawyers questioned the choice of the Zazu singer and opted to walk out of the show.

The protesting lawyers were seen walking or driving out of the stadium around 1:00a.m.

Speaking about the occurrence, one of the lawyers in a message said: “How dare they call Portable to come and play for lawyers at the conference?


“Can you imagine? Normally, Unbarred doesn’t end till 3:00a.m. or 4:00a.m. but we are leaving for our hotels. We are so upset”.

“They spoilt my day with this Zazu. He couldn’t even wear a shirt” another lawyer said.


Another lawyer said: “I also left but it was largely due to the fact that I was tired. Many of the conferees were unhappy that Portable was invited”.

Other lawyers, however, stayed behind to watch the controversial singer perform.

Videos circulated on social media show a shirtless Portable climbing some of the equipment at the stadium.
