“What I meant by 1 million boys is 1 million followers. People are threatening my life ooo you should all look into this”.

The famous Nigerian Music producer and promoter Sammy Larry has dissociated himself from the controversial singer Habeeb Okikiola (Portable).

In a now-deleted video, Portable, Monday, claimed to have formed the One-Million Boys cult group terrorising some parts of Lagos State and said the show promoter could bear witness.

“Open your ears and listen well, have you heard about Ajah boys, One Million boys? I’m the one who founded; gogo and ask. Go ask the likes of Sammy Larry,” Portable boasted in the Yoruba language.

Mr Larry, in an Instagram video on Tuesday, vented his annoyance at Portable while denying any connection to cultism or any cult group.

The show promoter angrily cut ties with the zazu crooners, saying, “I never want to see your calls again.”

Still venting his anger, Mr Larry continued ‘ ” I don’t know who One Million Boys are. I only helped Portable. I’m only his benefactor. I’m a promoter.”

He said: “Where do I know you from? When did we meet? At what point did we have any joint dealing involving one million boys? I’ve not known Portable for more than a year, yet the unfortunate man mentions my name in his rants.

“I’m not the only person he mentioned, but it’s only my name that the public is committed to heart. What’s the meaning of all that? Never mention my name in negative things! And I never want to see your calls again. I’ll block you even.

“My wife’s family members are all worried, calling me over the phone and asking who one million boys are.”

Meanwhile, in his retraction, he said he had no ties with the cult group but only referred to his fans as “One Million Boys.”

Portable said: “Clearing the air on this! Zazu!! This has come to an end that I have to voice out… please everyone; I want to let you know that I didn’t mean to campaign for APC.

“ It was a show they told me that I was going to before I saw myself in the APC office, and as a man, no need to worry. I got to do the job since it involved money.

Actress Habibat Jinad has revealed the reasons behind her decision to bleach her skin, citing pressure from a senior colleague, Mide Martins.

Speaking on Biola Bayo’s talk show, Talk To B, Habibat recounted an incident on the set of a movie directed by Mide’s husband, Afeez Owo.

During the incident, Habibat claimed that she was unjustly punished for a colleague’s mistake, and Mide Martins allegedly insulted her skin color in front of the entire crew, likening her complexion to that of a monkey.
