Lagos socialite and Naira Marley’s friend, Sam Larry, has come under fire after videos of him assaulting late Mohbad surfaced online.
Newsbreak Nigeria reported that Mohbad, a Nigerian artiste, died controversially on Tuesday, September 12
He was buried on Wednesday, September 13th, in Ikorodu.
Mohbad, a former signee of Naira Marley, had left the Marlians record label in 2022 after falling out with his boss.
Until his death, he had alleged that his life was under threat by Naira Marley and his friends, including Sam Larry.
In one of the videos, Sam Larry could be seen charging at Mohbad, wielding a cane, on the set of a music video being shot by the deceased.
The videos sparked outrage on social media, with Nigerians calling for the arrest of Naira Marley and Sam Larry
Below are some of the comments from users on the X platform.
Ogbeni Gugu @Gugumedia_ wrote, “Portable was trying to reveal how evil this Sam Larry was then, we didn’t pay attention to him.
“Sam Larry immediately disowns Portable over one million boys claims.
“They wanted to use portable ruggedness to Carry out their activities, portable jare eh.”
@PIDOMNIGERIA wrote, “On the death of Mohbad, see my tweet of March 18th 2023 about Sam Larry. The Lagos state governorship election day. If you connect these dots, any investigation one does to unravel the truth will eventually end up in Alausa government house, as a piece of rubbish.”
@_KingAG said, “Killerboi is just like Sam Larry. You are a joke if you think the Man in Black will arrest Sam Larry. Gangs don’t arrest gangs.”

@Samkleff wrote, “The bible says no peace for the wicked: Sam Larry decided to deactivate his Instagram account after a video of him confronting Mohbad during a video shoot with Zlatan Ibile went viral.
“The backlash he received from Nigerians on his Instagram page, even after restricting comments, prompted this decision. The continuous trolling led to the deactivation of his social media presence.”
@prinzbilax wrote, “Iba Jamal posted it last month! So nah even them Sam Larry, shows how they truly bullied him everywhere.”
@MikaelCBernard said. “The tout (Sam Larry) in that video, works with Naira Marley. Look at him coming with a cutlass to massacre the innocent young man.
“He’s also strongly linked to Pontius Pilate and Rehoboam.
His social media is filled with praise for both of them.
“These are the NDLEA ambassadors that are meant to serve as role models to young people. These are the APC folks that promote Rehoboam daily to Nigerians. These are the tribal bigots that claim to speak for Nigerians. These are the criminals that maimed people on Election Day.
“When they say Rehoboam made men, this is the kind of criminals that he made.
“The effect of a drug lord becoming president is unthinkable. Every industry will feel the reach of this drug lord. Not surprised he has his men even in tech, who come online to gaslight Nigerians. If you mistakenly raise money from a VC that supports Tinubu, your life will be miserable.
“There’s no way Mohbad wouldn’t have been depressed. He wasn’t just fighting Naira Marley, he was fighting a government-backed criminal organization.
“Something is fishy about his death. The hospital has to answer. I’m annoyed that an autopsy wasn’t carried out. They’re hiding something.”
Checks by Newsbreak Nigeria on Thursday showed that Sam Larry had deactivated his Instagram account following the backlash he received from the videos.
