Music enthusiast, song writer and promoter, Sam Larry Eletu has distanced himself from the claims by the controversial singer, Habeeb Okikiola, aka Portable that he is aware that he (Portable) founded the cult groups, One Million Boys and Ajah Boys, well-known for terrorizing Lagos State residents, especially during the 2020 coronavirus lockdown.
The popular music promoter, who spoke in Yoruba in a video he posted on his Instagram page refuted Portable’s claim saying that he got to know him just few months ago when he released the trending song Zazoo.
Sam Larry said he just assisted Portable with his trip because he is a music promoter.
“In regard to the trending topic about 1 million boys..l am a promoter and I only knew @portablebaeby few months ago when he released the trending song Zazoo. I took him for a show in Kenya and also in Dubai. Please I advise everyone to disregard what he said stating that I and 4 others mentioned knew about him been the founder of 1 million Boys.
“I don’t have any association to the criminal group which caused pains and havoc to us during the lockdown and I also a call through to @portablebaeby that I have cancelled all ties with him and he should never contact me again because this is a big stain to my name.”
In the 58 seconds video, Larry, who was visibly angry, stated; “I heard 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.
On one side of the video was Portables chat with him apologising to the music promoter describing his action as “cruise”.
A portion of the footage showed Portable apologising to the music promoter and calling his behavior a “cruise” in a conversation with him.
“No vex na cruise me I dey do. Akoi million fans. Na Steliza tell me say you dey vex. I dey loyal boss. No vex.” (Sic)
The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Usman Baba has directed Lagos Police Commissioner to investigate and take necessary legal action on the claim by Portable.
