Controversial singer, Habeeb Okikiola better known as Portable has addressed people who compare Afrobeats star, Wizkid to rave of the moment, Asake.
He demanded that people doing such should desist because they are not in the same category when it comes to impact and relevance.
Portable said that Wizkid is in the same group with music superstars, Olamide, Burna Boy and Davido.
In a video making the rounds online, the Zazuu star said he and Asake are in the same set and it is disrespectful to compare the Terminator crooner to Big Wiz.
He added that YBNL boss Olamide was very instrumental in bringing him and the buzzing artiste to the limelight.
