Controversial Habeeb Okikiola, also known as Portable, a well-known Nigerian musician who frequently makes headlines for the wrong reasons, is in the news once more, but this time it’s thanks to TG Omori, a well-known director of music videos in that country.
The singer of “Zazoo Zehh” criticizes TG Omori in the tape that is going viral online for demanding him to pay $50,000 (22.6M) for a music video shoot.
He chose to contact the renowned music video director because of the excellent work he made on his popular song “Zazoo Zehh” featuring Olamide and Poco Lee, according to Portable, who recorded his discussion with TG Omori in the viral audio that went viral online.
TG Omori is without a doubt one of the best and most well-known music video directors working today. He has collaborated with several prominent Nigerian musicians, including Olamide, Wizkid, Burna Boy, Tekno, Kiss Daniel, Fireboy DML, Falz, Timaya, Naira Marley, Asake, and many more. He currently has the highest fee for a music video shoot.
However, Portable, who clearly did not anticipate receiving such a large sum of money from TG Omori, expressed his deep disappointment by saying that he would have to find another video director as there are many talented individuals out there who are willing to collaborate with him.
Asking the music director if he has been making movies for the ritualists over the last few months, Portable, who is still curious about the $50,000 price tag from TG Omori, expresses his curiosity. More collaboration between TG Omori and Asake, Kizz Daniel, Fireboy DML Black Sheriff, and others occurs in 2022.
However, this is not the first time that Nigerian musicians have voiced their displeasure over the cost of the TG Omori music video shoot. Following TG Omori’s request for a music video shoot a few months ago, rapper Blaqbonez self-directed the video for his nostalgic bp, titled Back in Uni.
