Terry G Accuses Portable of Copying His Style, Reveals Details of Fight with AY. Com

In an episode of ‘The Honest Bunch’ podcast, Nigerian singer Gabriel Oche Amanyi, widely known as Terry G, made a bold claim about his colleague Portable, accusing him of copying his style.

However, Terry G also pointed out that Portable failed to emulate the musical aspect of his artistry.

Terry G, who is often referred to as the ‘Akpako Master,’ said, “Portable picked the acting part of me. He didn’t pick the musical part of me.

Music is about the instruments. Is it only about your voice? He didn’t create time to learn any instrument.”

This statement suggests that Terry G believes Portable only copied his on-stage persona and not his musical talent or dedication to the craft.

In the same podcast, Terry G also spoke about his altercation with his colleague, AY. Com. The ‘Free Madness’ singer claimed that he beat AY. Com in a physical confrontation, stating, “I beat AY.Com, I produced ‘Pass Me Ur Luv’, sang the hook and also had a verse on the song so nobody has the right to tell me not to perform that song at my shows.

Moreover, he didn’t pay me for the production.” This revelation sheds light on the tension between the two artists and Terry G’s stance on performing their collaborative work.

Terry G, known for his energetic performances and unique style, has been a significant influence in the Nigerian music industry since the early 2000s.

His music combines elements of hip-hop, Afrobeat, and highlife, creating a distinctive sound that has earned him a dedicated fanbase.

Portable, on the other hand, has gained popularity in recent years for his unique blend of street rap and Afrobeat, often incorporating Yoruba slang and Pidgin English into his lyrics.

His breakout hit ‘Zazu Zeh,’ featuring Olamide and Poco Lee, propelled him into the limelight and has garnered millions of streams across various platforms.

As the Nigerian music scene continues to evolve and artists draw inspiration from one another, it’s not uncommon for artists to accuse their peers of copying their style or content.

However, it is essential for fans and industry professionals to recognize the unique contributions each artist brings to the table and appreciate their individual talents.
