In fact, it’s his terrace chant which most Blues fans will remember over his impact on the pitch, as Nicke Kabamba was handed scraps of playing time at PO4.
The man who followed pal Jamal Lowe to Pompey from Hampton & Richmond, moved on to Hartlepool in the summer of 2018 in an effort to kickstart his career. His Blues playing time totalled 141 minutes.
At least he knows he made an impact with the Fratton faithful, with their ‘Kabamba’ chant to the tune of Tequila by The Champs a big favourite.
Stints with Kilmarnock, Northampton and Woking have followed for the Londoner, but it’s his switch to Barnet last summer which has rejuvenated his fortunes.
A maiden campaign in north London returned an impressive 19 goals, before his team foundered in the play-offs against Boreham Wood.
Well, it looks like Kabamba is intent on not leaving it to the end-of-season lottery this time around, as he sets a ferocious goal pace in the fifth tier.
Nine goals have already been registered by the powerful front man, to see him soar to the top of the National League goal charts.
His hit rate has intensified as the season has continued, with a hat-trick against Ebbsfleet at the end of last month followed by four goals in three outings in September.
That has helped Barnet to a run of four wins from five games, which leaves them third in the formative National League table - three points off Paul Cook’s Chesterfield.
Kabamba’s latest strike came against former Fratton team-mate Haji Mnoga on Tuesday night, in a 2-1 success over Aldershot.
The cool finish against his former loan side helped the Bees maintain a 100 per cent home start to the season - and solidify Kabamba’s place as one of the hottest properties in the non-league game.
