Nigerians have had conflicting reactions to throwback images of fast-rising Nigerian artist Portable that have leaked online.
The Zazu Zeh singer looked significantly different in the photographs that made their way to social media than he does now. Portable looks chubbier and healthier in the images, with his trademark blonde hair.
Surprised at the disparity Nigerians blamed his current emaciated appearance on drugs and asked him to quit so he could regain his body.
An Instagram follower @tiwalola_folakemi, “He need to rehabilitate ,make dem flush all the drug comot for him body,and clean some tattoos wey be like amotekun”.

@oba_823, “That’s Power of taking drugs without taking care of yourself gaddamn self !!!!”
@billiscobar, “The moment he stops drugs, he will return to his original form… Drugs no good nah.. He’s a very good guy just wrong choices probably caused by 9ja frustration.”
@alpha_duchess, “He looks like an addict, rehab is what he truly needs”.
@mobrixx_otg, “That’s wat unhealthy smoking and crack can do. He better help himself”.
