I Conferred Chieftaincy Title On Portable Because Of His Respectful Act – Onitigbo Of Tigbo
The Onitigbo of Tigbo-Ilu Land, in Ota, Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area of Ogun State, Olabode Thomas-Fagbayi, has justified why he conferred a chieftaincy title on the controversial singer, Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, on Monday.
The traditional ruler told Premium Times on Tuesday that he honoured the famous Nigerian hip-pop singer with a chieftaincy title over his respectful act.
The monarch added that people’s account of his (Portable’s) person differed from what he saw when he met the singer.
Portable, as fondly called, has shared photos and videos of his coronation as the Amuludun of Tigbo Awori land on social media.
He said he will now be known and addressed as “Chief Amuludun of Tigbo, Aworiland.”
The singer declared that God made it possible for him ever to become a chief.
The ceremony coincided with the annual Tigbo Day, which saw Abass Akande Obesere perform and eulogise Portable at the occasion.
Portable is known for ‘notoriety’ in his words and actions.
Since the conferment of the chieftaincy title, some persons have questioned why the monarch found Portable worthy of the honour.
