In a recent interview, Goya Menor, a hype man and rapper, spoke about his verbal altercation with colleague Portable following the former’s “Best Street Artiste” award in the recently concluded Headies.

Earlier in the week, Zah Zoo Zeh crooner, Habeeb Okikiola widely known as Portable called out Bright Goya, aka Goya Menor, on winning the Headies Award for “Best Street Artiste.”

Glamsgquad Magazine recalls how Portable, who was nominated in the same category, was eliminated after threatening to kill the other nominees if he didn’t win?

Menor and Portable had been teasing each other on social media for the past week.

In contrast, Menor claimed in a Saturday Beats interview obtained by Glamsquad Magazine, that he had never heard of the singer and thought the name was a rat poison. He said, “Porta what? Is that the name of a rat poison? I don’t think I have heard that name before in my life. As for other artistes in the same category with me, shout out to them all, especially those that congratulated me.”

Speaking about what it feels like to win the award, Menor said, “I felt good. At least, there was a high level of transparency. In less than a year of being in the music industry, winning the Headies is a big one for me.”

When asked if it was appropriate for artists to voice their displeasure on social media about issues that bothered them, the Ameno Amapiano crooner responded, “Yes. That’s why it is called social media. That is where artistes, just like other celebrities, pass messages to their fans.”

Speaking on how he felt during his Headies performance, he said, “I was accepted 100 per cent. I give thanks to everyone present in that hall that day. When I was called upon as the winner in my category, the ovation I got was more than an ovation. The Headies Atlanta (United States of America) experience was a great one for me.”

Menor recently worked with Lade, the singer of “Adulthood Anthem,” on his new song, “Grace.” Menor declared that the grace of God in his life served as the inspiration for the song. He said, “I felt like thanking God for his grace upon me. A lot has really happened and I would say its grace. I originally wanted to work with Teni, but because of her busy schedule, we could not make it happen. That was why I chose Lade.”
