US based Ghanaian artiste Sam Safo popularly known as Showboy who was jailed in the US for ‘allegedly’ stabbing Junior US set to be released today after serving his jail term.
He was sentenced to serve 6 years in prison in March 2019 for stabbing Junior US and also biting his ear during a fight in 2017.
The musician was incarcerated in March 2019 for stabbing another US-based Ghanaian musician, Junior US, who survived the attack but was later killed in 2021 during a robbery attack.
Fingers were pointed at Showboy for the death of Junior US, who was also known as Nana Yaw Opoku, a close friend of Shatta Wale, but the actual killers were arrested by the US Police.
The highly opinionated socialite has finally regained his freedom.
According to confirmed reports, Showboy after his release from jail has been deported to Ghana.
His deportation to Ghana is because of his aggravated felony and crime involving moral turpitude.
Amidst the good news, social butterfly Showboy is yet to make a public appearance or post about his release and deportation on any of his social media pages.

Showboy later accused Criss Waddle of setting him up to be arrested in a post on social media last year.
In a post on social media, he wrote;
“5yrs ago Criss Waddle sent junior us to my house (apartment) … they set me up..my life hasnt been the same since then. July 3,2016 . I never forget this day. U can read the statement and see the lies they told police, came to court and denied everything and said they scared of me,”
“Told court am a Gunsta .. prosecutor told me I got a Huge Ego and said I call the shot .. I was profiled .. if not Criss Waddle sending Junior to me to come pay me money he Criss Waddle owed ..all this never was going to happen .. Junior us was never my friend. That was Criss Waddle friend that hated on me out of jealousy .. I was set up by Criss Waddle and his friends. .thats the facts … still ain’t got no visit from Criss Waddle till today. .. haven’t seen him in 5yrs(sic).”
Showboy must’ve given a hint when he also added, “Dem want deport me ..a make sad rough. .. a taya for life … if a come Ghana too Boyz want beat me especially criss waddle and shatta wale in friends lol …. make a sign for deportation or sit for another 1yr or 2 for immigration detention to fight for ma stay and still be on 9yrs probation. .. or to just sign for the deportation n come face death or happineass in Ghana …… lol am stressed, I can’t think far ..”
Sometimes I think God don’t like me”.

“Being doing time for almost 2 and half years now … still depressed ..still suffering mentally … I am not innocent ,I was attacked first and I defended myself by stabbing. .I dont have control off ma adrenaline ..I did whatever to survive at the moment. .THEY SET ME UP ..TOOK MY FREEDOM FROM ME …. U ASK WHY AM MENTALLY UNSTABLE..THIS IS .. I DONT HAVE NO FRIEND ,NOBODY TO TRUST … JUST FAKE LOVE ALL AROUND ME (sic)”.
