Four months after allegedly beating up his girlfriend to a pulp, rapper Lil Frosh is in police custody. Frosh was remanded Thursday after he honoured summons by police in Lagos State and has not been released since, reports local media. Frosh, real name Sanni Goriola, is accused of assaulting model Iyomaterire Okeoghene Taiwo - popularly known as Gift Camille.
According to Camille’s manager and brother Mayoks Michael, the rapper assaulted the 21-year-old severally. "My client and sister has suffered enough!!! We have kept quiet enough Lil Frosh. You have done enough damage for almost a year now you have been in a relationship with my sister and client and you have brought her nothing but horror, pain and disaster,” cried out Michael in October 2020.
Adding: “She has lost so many friendships because of you. You never wanted her to be friends or to even talk to anyone. I’m tired of trying to protect your image while you continually ruin her and break her into pieces. She called one day crying that you were going to kill her and actually you were truly locking her inside preparing to beat not until I called her mom. You even recorded her naked!! Threatening to post it after beating her, bro, you better be ready.”
Speaking to talk show host Daddy Freeze, Camille said Frosh threatened to kill her, claiming to be untouchable. "He beat me up so bad...that was when he stripped me naked and he was like ‘I'm going to post this on social media, I’m going to ruin your life’. He poured water on me, beat me up, slapped me," said Camille.“He threatened me and was like 'do you think I cannot get away with anything? I'm going to kill you right there and you will just die for nothing because Davido is going to get me out of it. I will just kill you for nothing."
Consequently, Davido Music Worldwide (DMW), a label owned by Afro-pop mogul Davido, went public October 6 and revealed that it carried out its own internal investigation and dropped the 22-year-old. “There is no excuse for the actions of Lil Frosh and we understand that there is nothing that can be said or down to take away the insensitivity shown. Upon internal investigations carried out by the label, we are left with no option than to terminate the recording contract exists between the label and Lil Frosh, effective immediately. We, hereby, immediately severe all affiliations with Mr Sanni Goriola a.ka. Lil Frosh. Once again, we do not condone domestic violence and stand with all victims of domestic violence,” read DMW's statement in part
