Upcoming Nigerian rapper Portable is finally dropping his eagerly anticipated single with Skepta

Nigerian up-and-comer Portable is finally dropping his eagerly anticipated collaboration with British emcee Skepta, "Tony Montana."

Portable and Skepta first teased the track in a TikTok video back in January.

Shortly after, Skepta, who is of Nigerian descent, took to X, the platform previously known as Twitter, to promise it would be "dropping any minute."

In the days that followed, the pair then both shared snaps of them together on the set of the song's music video.

With fans in a frenzy, news of the collaboration subsequently went quiet, however.

That was until now.

"SKEPTA & PORTABLE #TonyMontana," Skepta wrote on X on Tuesday alongside a pre-save link for the single which confirmed its release date as Friday, March 1.

Portable is one of Nigeria's most revered young rappers, having released several huge hits in his home country including 2021's "Zazoo Zehh" featuring Olamide and 2022's "Azaman."

As well as linking up with Skepta, the 29-year-old also appears to have made a high-profile friend across the Atlantic.

On Monday, Portable took to Instagram to share a number of snaps of him linking up with American rapper Wale and fellow Nigerian Bella Shmurda at one of Shmurda's recent concerts in London.

"We’re outside for my brother yesterday DANGBANA @bella_shmurda," Portable wrote alongside the pictures.

"GRAMMY People," he added.
