Mohbad owed me N2 million
The statement explained that Sam Larry had given Mohbad N2 million two years ago to perform at his mother’s annual remembrance concert in Ikorodu but he failed to show up and when he challenged him about it, the singer claimed to have not been feeling fine.
According to the note, Sam Larry asked Mohbad for a refund but the singer claimed that he lost his phone and money after the NDLEA raided where he was staying so he was broke. The statement revealed further that Sam Larry later heard Mohbad was shooting a music video somewhere close to his house and he went there to ask for his money before an argument ensued and one of the singer’s friends promised that the money would be refunded.
Sam Larry allegedly claimed in the statement that he later traveled to Kenya to find a new African musician to perform at his mother’s annual remembrance and he has been away since August 20, even before Mohbad died.
