In related news, Portable recently sacked all the employees at his studio over low turnover while he was away.
The singer, who was on tour and recently returned to Nigeria, made this disclosure in a video he shared on social media, explaining why he decided to sack all the staff at his Zeh Nation studio.
According to him, he was out of the country for over a month, and on his return, the studio staff claimed to have only made N7,000 in his absence.
The Zazu zeh star and music executive claimed that before his trip, he makes up to N15 million from his studio in 5 days, so it was quite upsetting when his studio staff reported that they only made N7,000 while he was away.
“I rebrand my studio, people i put in my studio refused to blow, I build studio, they didn’t deliver my money, them dey chop my money. Studio wey be say anytime I record, I make 2 million, 3million, in 5 days I fit make 15million, when I travelled and return they said they make 7000 naira.
