Portable, singer of viral song, Zazuu, featuring Olamide and Pocolee, has accused Pocolee of stealing his money and claiming patent to his song. 

In a series of video that surfaced online, Portable accused Pocolee of stealing two thousand and four hundred dollars out of three thousand given to him by Wizkid while performing. 

“Wizkid blessed me with 3k dollars but while Pocolee and I were dancing, he took the money and only released six hundred dollars,” Portable alleged. 

Portable also said Pocolee falsely put his name as the lead artist on the Zaazu track, stylishly claiming patent to the song. 

“The song is mine. And even if you want to feature on the list, it should be written as ‘Portable featuring Olamide X Pocolee or Portable featuring Pocolee X Olamide and not the other way round,'” Portable said. 

Pocolee had written the names of the artist in the song as though he was the owner of the song.

He also uploaded the song on his streaming accounts putting himself in a position to directly earn proceeds from the song without the authorisation of the owner, Portable. 

The track Zaazu in the past weeks have gained public momentum especially due to the contributions of music legend, Olamide.
