The Elegushi Royal Family in Lagos has disassociated itself from socialite Sam Larry and denied any affiliation with him.
This comes after a petition was filed by late musician Mohbad alleging that Larry harassed him during a video shoot.
The statement from the royal family clarified that although Larry may have visited the palace in the past, he is not affiliated with them in any way.
They expressed their condolences to the family of the late artist and urged the public to respect the privacy of the family during this difficult time.
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.
