Why I Attacked Mohbad-Sam Larry

A suspect in the death of Mohbad, one Olamilekan Balogun Eletu aka Sam Larry has explained why he once attacked the late singer.

He said in a new video that his brawl with Mohbad was over N2million that the late singer owed him.

Sam Larry had presented himself to the police over the death of Mohmad, adding that he did so to state all that transpired between him and the deceased singer.

Recall a video of Mohbad and Zlatan when Sam Larry who is said to be an ally of Naira Marley, stormed the scene with some boys targeting Mohbad who scampered away in fear.


The video left many Nigerians on social media furious as they stormed Larry’s Instagram page to attack him for bullying and threatening the late singer.

In a statement shared on SnapChat and has since gone viral, Sam Larry claimed to have paid Mohbad N2million to perform at his mother’s annual remembrance concert but the late singer failed to show up.

He wrote, “2 year’s ago, I gave Ileri N2m to perform at my mother’s annual remembrance concert at Ikorodu, he boy never turned up, so I called him to ask why?, He then said he was not feeling well and when I asked for a refund, he said he lost his phone and money recently when the NDLEA raided his place in the process and since he was leaving Marlian Records, he is now broke, with no commitment to

”I then left, all for me to later hear that this same boy was having a musical video shoot the next door, practically next street to my house, so I went there to ask for my money again, we had an argument that lasted 5mins, 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 then moved on.

”I traveled 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 loose some.


”That is my story case close. I came here willingly and happily. I know nothing about how the musician died “.
