Nigerian musician, Habeeb ‘Portable’ Okikiola has accused Afrobeats sensation, Seyi Vibez of totally imitating his colleague, Asake’s music style.
The Zazuu crooner took to his Instagram story to share videos of him calling out Seyi for unoriginality and music video director, TG Omori for lack of loyalty.
According to Portable, Seyi Vibez is imitating Asake’s style of music as well as his creative process. The trending artist recently released the music video for his hit single ‘Chance’ which was shot by TG Omori and according to Portable, this was a deliberate attempt to imitate Asake.
Portable asserted that there was no love in the industry, which is why TG Omori was able to switch from Asake despite everything so easily.
Furthermore, Portable’s comments echo some of the sentiments that have been shared by fans across social media who also opine that Seyi Vibez was imitating Asake.
The similarities in their sound and fashion have sparked this comparison with some fans going as far as debating on who is better.
Seyi Vibez is enjoying a sensational start to 2023 as he released a new EP titled ‘Memory Card’. He also teased new music the same day Asake released ‘Yoga’, his first single for 2023.
