He also debunked claims by Are that he also negotiated some mega deals, raising Lagbaja's value to as much as N3 million in those days.Are reportedly claimed in some interviews he granted that he made Lagbaja and he even compelled him to were mask and that he also introduced him to Sony Music.
In a note by Lagbaja, he said " I feel so ashamed that i would sink as low as to respond to the megalomaniac rant of Sunday Are.I typically would not respond to such because i live by a different code. For one thing, issues like this are typically mundane, vain and a waste of precious time"
In other parts of the note, Lagbaja said Are is out to scam unsuspecting members of the public by bringing out twisted stories by his supposed 'glorious' past.
Lagbaja also said that he also has a suspicion that most of the stories Are also told about his relationship with the likes of King Sunny Ade, Majek Fashek, Asa etc are fabricated.
