    However, not being pleased with Portable’s statement, organisers of the awards took to their official Instagram account on Tuesday to announce the disqualification.

    He wrote, “The Headies officially disqualifies Mr Habeeb Okikiola ( @portablebaeby ) from its 15th nominees’ list to further pass a strong message of not condoning reckless and uncouth statements.

    “The music industry demands all-round excellence, and it is extremely important for young artists being potential role models to exude professional responsibility, proper decorum and have respect for others.”
