Angry lawyers walkout from their NBA concert during Portable’s performance

    Published By:

    Some angry lawyers staged a walkout during Portable’s performance at the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) annual conference in Abuja.

    The programme tagged “unbarred concert” was held on Thursday at the Velodrome of the MKO Abiola Stadium, Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

    Some lawyers took to their heels when the street Afropop singer Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable was announced as the guest performer, saying he was not the appropriate artist for such a prestigious event.

    In a viral video trending on the internet the shirtless Portable was seen climbing the poles to entertain the lawyers in the wee hours of Thursday, however, some attorneys left the stadium on foot and others in their vehicles while others stayed back to enjoy the singer’s energetic performances.

    The ‘Zazu’ crooner’s performance at the ‘Unbarred’ concert, organised by the Nigerian Bar Association, has sparked a range of reactions on social media particularly on X, formerly known as Twitter.

    bearded_lawyah said, “I just want to see the genius at the Planning Committee meeting that thought it’d be a good idea to bring Portable to #Unbarred because if they aren’t high on Odogwu Bitters then they must be charge and bail lawyers because this thing no dey make sense no matter how you look am”.

    Another marcel_great said, “As #NigBarAssoc has decided to embarrass the bar with their choice of artiste for the unbarred concert, let it be known that we will visit the issue during the next year’s election. What business does NBA have with Portable? #afamosigwe we will remind you.”

    Also reacting, political activist, Aisha Yusuf said, “After inviting Tinubu who was disdainful of them during campaign season, Portable is actually a re-branding and doing better for them.”

    kbalogz wrote, “Why una sef go carry portable come lawyers gathering 2 …when no be Eyo festival .”

    Another dammy Jay said, “Dem don dey run for portable again 3) Shey he dey smell niks)”

    sir walteromoruyi wrote, “If the organizers are not st*pid. Of all the artists in Nigeria is portable they could afford. It’s a big shame on NBA”
