A Nigerian man has expressed his frustration after being repeatedly mistaken for controversial Lagos socialite, Sam Larry.
Sam Larry has recently faced severe criticism on social media after being captured on tape bullying and harassing the deceased Nigerian singer, Mohbad, who passed away on Tuesday, September 12.
Many Nigerians have placed a target on his back and called on the Nigerian authorities to fish him out and arrest him.
The Oba of Elegushi and the Eletu family have also dissociated themself from the socialite due to the bad press surrounding him.
In light of this, his lookalike has gone online to issue a disclaimer stating that he is not Sam Larry and urged people to stop mistaking his identity.
He also revealed that he has had to carry his ID card with him to prove his true identity because he receives odd looks in public.
He mentioned an instance where some artists came to his studio to record music and kept eyeing him suspiciously, thinking that he is Sam Larry.
His friend, DJ Spyce, shared the disclaimer video and wrote,
“Public Notice……….. My friend/ Colleague is being mistaken for Sam Larry,he is not even De related to him at all. My Niiga is scared and it’s not even funny at all E jor make una leave Ay alone o.”
