In a surprising twist of events, Nigerian music sensation Naira Marley and his associate, Sam Larry, have reportedly been apprehended. This follows the highly publicized incident involving the assault on fellow artist Mohbad, which has sent shockwaves throughout the entertainment industry and triggered widespread calls for justice.
The controversy erupted when a video depicting the late Mohbad being harassed by Naira Marley’s aide, Sam Larry, circulated online. The video quickly went viral, capturing the attention of fans and the general public alike. In the footage, Mohbad, who was on the set of a music video shoot, was in a wheelchair being pushed by an elderly woman, accompanied by fellow artist Zlatan. The disturbing clip showed Sam Larry striking Mohbad from behind before Zlatan intervened.
The incident sparked immediate outrage from fans and supporters of the late singer, who demanded accountability and justice. Many expressed deep disappointment in the actions of Naira Marley’s camp, leading to calls for a thorough investigation into the assault and its circumstances. Calls for boycotting Naira Marley’s songs also gained momentum as fans sought to take a stand against such behavior within the industry.
Initially, Sam Larry attempted to restrict comments on his Instagram page, likely in response to mounting criticism. However, this did not deter netizens from condemning his actions. Eventually, Sam Larry deactivated his social media accounts, intensifying public scrutiny.
Naira Marley, on the other hand, continued to post on his Snapchat, with many expressing shock at how seemingly unfazed he appeared in the midst of the controversy. It’s worth noting that Naira Marley had posted a broken heart emoji when news of Mohbad’s passing first emerged, which is the only reaction he has publicly given so far.
It’s important to clarify that Naira Marley and Sam Larry’s reported arrest is related to the physical assault inflicted on Mohbad while he was alive, and not directly connected to his passing. Netizens are relieved that accountability measures seem to be progressing.
