Nigerian music promoter Sam Larry has dissociated himself from Portable after he claimed to have established the occult organizations Ajah Boys and One Million Boys.
On Monday, July 18, the singer Portable, real name Habeeb Okikiola, claimed credit for founding the notorious cult groups Ajah Boys and One Million Boys that terrorized Lagos State people in 2020 during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Portable revealed in the video, which he has since removed from his Instagram page, that Sam Larry, the music promoter, and a number of other people are aware of his formation of the groups.
The well-known music promoter responded to Portable’s assertion in a 58-second video that went viral on social media, speaking in Yoruba.
Sam Larry claimed that as a music promoter, he had only helped Portable in his journey.
“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 I am a promoter.”
He continued, “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. Please correct yourself because I don’t know you,” he added.
Since then, Sam Larry has also used WhatsApp to get in touch with the contentious musician. The “One Million Boys” comment was referred to as a “cruise” by Portable.
