Promoter set to stop Portable’s South African tour after removing him from US, Canada show over indiscipline



Canada-based comedian and show promoter, Maurice Imadu, also known as MC Morris has revealed that he is set to get controversial singer, Portable barred from a music tour in South Africa.

This comes few months after he got Portable dropped from shows which held in the United States and Canada due to his indiscipline.

According to Morris, when he took the decision Nigerians attacked him because they could not see what he had already foreseen.

In a post on his Instagram page, Morris added that the same people who criticised him are now thanking him for saving the country international embarrassment.

He said that he is already working on stopping the South African tour scheduled for November 3rd because he does not want Nigeria to export ‘nonsens’ to the world.

The talent manager stressed that until the Zazuu star unlearns and relearns some things about life, such actions would continue to be taken against him.

Meanwhile, MC Morris released a statement earlier where he detailed the reason he barred Portable from performing at his show which held May 22 in Ontario, Canada.

He said: “I removed Portable from my Canada show because of his indiscipline and self-centredness. I came in contact with him through his former manager, Yusuf Adepitan (Ijoba Danku), and I proposed my Canada show which was welcomed and we started the process with an agreed fee.

I spoke with Portable twice on the phone and when I found out that he could not hold a conversation, I concentrated on talking with his manager. After the deal was agreed upon, an invite was sent to the embassy and it was approved, after which they were told to come for their biometric (capturing) and passport submission.

“I was at peace that it had been settled until I woke up about a week ago and saw a video online where Portable claimed that he had sacked his manager, promoter and DJ. The promoter is the one championing the Canada show. So, how do you sack him and still want me to go ahead with you on the show? That would amount to a betrayal.

Hence, I had to drop him. Interestingly, he was not the headliner for the event as it will feature other entertainers such as Dr Fresh, Azadus, Aki and Pawpaw, Lola Alao and Saco. “Portable will soon understand the absence of people in his life and it would have been too late by the time he realizes. He would have to learn the hard way.”
