Details: The Headies Academy's decision was necessitated by Portable's recent running afoul of the law as he claimed that he was the founder of the deadly one million boys gang which terrorised Lagos citizens during the COVID-19 lockdown.
Headies withdraws Portable's nominations due to police investigation
The Headies Academy has announced the withdrawal of the two nominations awarded to rising Afrobeats act, Portable. The announcement was made on Tuesday, 26th July, 2022, via the Headies' social media platforms.
Portable would later refute this claim after it attracted wide criticism and led to a police investigation.
Portable had previously threatened to kill other nominees should he fail to win 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.
