Ashabi Simple disclosed that they both planned to have a baby and their son wasn’t a mistake. Her words:
“He (Portable) has done many things for me but what stands out the most is the care and support he gives me. I am not here for the material things. I have produced movies and made my millions before meeting him. I have been a self-sponsored student even before I met him. I have been carrying responsibilities way back.”
“We have introduced our families and hope to get married soon. I am an entertainer and I have thought about getting married to him properly.
I did not get pregnant by mistake. It was planned and I do not expect to have issues with any of his wives or other baby mamas. I see some comments that I want to snatch Portable but I am not here to snatch anyone. I am just a shareholder and I cannot take care of him alone because I have my career and child. I also want to work more and be famous.”
Ashabi Simple also spoke on the singer’s personality off the stage, noting that unlike most think, Portable is a calm and caring man. She said:
“One cannot judge his personality from his performance because that is what he does for a living and he has to put in his best and energy. As my man, he has always been calm and caring. He is always available when I want to talk to him and he is a great listener. Those are some of the things I like the most about him.”
