The Elegushi Royal Family of Eti-Osa, Lagos State, has released a statement stating that music promoter Samson Balogun, also know as Sam Larry, is not a member of the royal family as reported in some quarters.
In a statement released Thursday by the Palace, the Royal Family denounced any involvement with the music promoter.
The statement reads, “The Elegushi Royal Family of Eti-Osa wishes to put on record the misinformation on the media space involving Samson Erinfolami Balogun (AKA 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.
“While expressing our condolence to the family and friends of late Ilerioluwa Aloba (known as MohBad) we would like to add our voices to the calls for a thorough investigation into circumstances surrounding his death to unravel any foul play.
“We ask our friends in the media to be mindful of the sensitivity of the issue and desist from spreading falsehood that may jeopardise the investigation.”
