Simi, a popular Nigerian singer, has stated that her colleague Habeeb Okikiola, also known as Portable, deserves “flowers” despite his controversial nature.

He was later granted N800,000 bail, but the Magistrate ordered Portable to be remanded at the Ilaro Correctional Centre pending the completion of his bail conditions.
