An actress, Akinyanju Omobolarinde, aka Ashabi Simple, who is also a fiancée of controversial singer, Habeeb Okiki, aka Portable, has stated that she sometimes gets jealous of the other women in her fiance’s life, she understands that it is due to the nature of his job.
She also described the ‘Zazuu’ singer as her mentor, who was always protective of her.
In an interview with Saturday Beats, she stated that despite his hectic life, the singer often dedicated time to her every day. She said, “When it comes to his relationships, he is very protective. When I see him with other women, I sometimes get jealous, but I caution myself, knowing that he is a celebrity. However, he is always open and that is better than hiding (keeping secrets). I am used to it all.”
Expressing admiration for Portable’s dedication to his craft, she said, “I strive to achieve what I want. I am not in competition with anyone. If I want to compete with anyone, that should be my husband, because he is also an entertainer. I look up to him; he is more like my mentor. Despite being made, he is still vibrant and full of energy.”
The actress added that while Portable often surprised her with gifts, she was not one to lazy around. She said, “If I am dating him because of his money, I would be tired by now. No one forces Portable to do anything, and I do not have a problem with that, because I do a lot for myself. I have always been like that. Before I started my clothing business, I worked as a bus conductor, bartender, and I sold pieces of jewelry, before I started attending filmmaking class and working in the film industry as a manager. And, that was where I started making money.”
Reacting to Portable’s invitation to the Celestial Church of God, Goshen Land Cathedral branch, in Lagos State for a performance, Ashabi stated that it was not a crime. She added that the church’s planning committee must have discussed it with the church’s members before making such a decision.
