Sam Larry, distances self from Portable following ‘one million boys’ claim
Sam Larry has refuted assertions made by self-described “wahala” musician Habeeb Okikiola, alias Portable, claiming he is aware that the street hop singer created well-known cult groups Ajah Boys and One Million Boys who terrorised citizens of Lagos State.
Portable had earlier claimed he founded the ‘Ajah Boys’ and ‘One Million Boys’ cult groups.
He listed Larry among those who witnessed his influence in the cult group.
“Open your ears and listen well, have you heard about Ajah boys, One Million boys? I’m the one who founded it, go and ask. Go and ask the likes of Sammy Larry,” the singer boasted in the Yoruba language.
However, in a 58-second video that went viral on social media, the prominent music promoter, speaking in Yoruba, contradicted Portable’s claim.
Sam Larry claimed that as a music promoter, he had only helped Portable in his journey.
“I had that something is happening on social media about One Million Boys. I don’t know anything about them and I don’t know them. Portable who mentioned my name, I am his benefactor. I helped him to travel because am a promoter.
“When did I know you? It is not up to a year now. I am your benefactor and you are using that to tannish my image. You did not mention my name alone but on Social media everyone is there mentioning my name. Where did we meet for One Million Boys? What is the meaning of that? Don’t ever mention my name on something bad.
“Henceforth, don’t ever call me. I will even block you too.
“My wife’s family and other people have been calling to ask me what is the meaning of One Million Boys Portable mentioned my name about? Please correct yourself because I don’t know you,” he added.
