In the middle of the difficulties surrounding the death of popular nigerian musician, Mohbad, the Elegushi Royal Family denies any association with the socialite, Sam Larry.
This comes following the resurfacing of a petition for protection of life filed by the late Mohbad after being harassed during a video shoot by Sam Larry.
In response to the outrage over the socialite and his supposed ties to the Elegushi, the monarch’s family issued a statement distancing itself from him.
Like every celebrity who stepped foot in the palace of the Elegushi, his affiliation to the king either as a family or worker is declared false.
“Sam Larry; Samson Balogun is not a member of the royal family and does not work for the royal family or king in any capacity. Like other celebrities, politicians, religious and community leaders, he visits the palace to pay homage to the king and seek royal blessings just like other members of the public,” the statement reads in part.
