Nigerian singer Portable Zazu, also known as Habeeb Okikiola, has made headlines after being arrested by the Nigerian police over an alleged unpaid debt.

The arrest stemmed from a dispute involving the purchase of a black Mercedes-Benz GLE 350.

A leaked letter of undertaking signed by Portable Zazu earlier this year revealed the details of the agreement between the singer and a car dealer. Contrary to initial rumors, the car in question was a Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 worth N27 million. Portable reportedly still owes N14 million based on the undertaking.

This turn of events has put the musician in a precarious situation.
