Balogun Olamilekan Eletu aka Sam Larry, a Nigerian socialite, has revealed that his altercation with Mohbad was over N2 million due to him by the late musician.
Remember that HowNG previously published an article on how Sam Larry came under criticism on social media when a video of him and several other people harassing late singer Mohbad surfaced.
In the video, Mohbad and Zlatan were on the set of a music video when Sam Larry, who is claimed to be Naira Marley’s ally, stormed the scene with some boys targeting Mohbad, who scampered away in panic.
Many Nigerians were enraged by the video and stormed Larry’s Instagram page to bash him for abusing and threatening the late singer.
Sam Larry said in a SnapChat statement that has now gone viral that he paid Mohbad N2 million to perform at his mother’s annual commemoration performance, but that the late musician did not show up.
“Two years ago, I paid Ileri N2 million to perform at my mother’s annual remembrance concert in Ikorodu,” he wrote.
“The boy never turned up. So I called him to ask why. He then said he was not feeling well.
“When I asked for a refund, he said he lost his phone and money recently when the NDLEA raided his place and since he was leaving Marlian Records, he is now broke, with no commitment to repay.
“I then left, all for me to later hear that this same boy was having a musical video shoot next door, practically the next street to my house.
“So I went there to ask for my money again. We had an argument that lasted five minutes. Even one of his friends insisted he was going pay the money. Up till today one kobo they have not paid me. This was early last year. I have since moved on.
“I travelled to Kenya to find new African act that can perform at my mother’s concert this year. I have been away since August 20!
“Till now I don’t know anything other than what was written in the blogs and press. I don’t even know where he lives I only know his former label boss and their house.
“I don’t know any nurse or doctor or hospital. I don’t know anything about his movement, I don’t have that time. I have lost a lot more money than that before; you win some you lose some.
“That is my story, case close. I came here willingly and happily. I know nothing about how the musician died.”
