Nigerian street-hop sensation Portable has vehemently denied allegations that he sent individuals to assault his former signee, Young Duu.
The singer further declared his intent to pursue legal action against Young Duu for making these allegations.
This controversy erupted after Young Duu made a public statement claiming that Portable had orchestrated an attack on him by a group of individuals. Young Duu alleged that this attack was a direct result of his newfound fame and success since parting ways with his former record label, Zeh Nation.
In response to these accusations, Portable’s management issued a strongly-worded statement, categorically refuting Young Duu’s claims.
They argue that Young Duu’s statements are baseless and deliberate attempts to smear Portable’s reputation within the music industry, all in a bid to garner attention and promote his upcoming music release.
The statement released by Portable’s management read, “Our attention has been drawn to the allegations made by Young Duu against Portable, that he was beaten by some boys sent by Portable. We condemn in the strongest terms the said allegation as it is completely without any substance and it is deliberately designed to tarnish Portable’s industry reputation.
The statement continued, “We urge all Portable’s fans to completely disregard such blatatly false allegations as we are briefing our lawyers to take appropriate action with the authorities to address this situation.”
The ongoing feud between Portable and Young Duu has not only left fans and industry insiders stunned but also raised questions about the cutthroat nature of the Nigerian music scene.
