Weeks ago, singer Kelly Hansome accused Mavin Records’ CEO, Don Jazzy of locking him up in a cell for doing the cover of a song originally released by D’banj.
Hansome has now clarified that, although he has no intentions of making such accusation publicly, it was true.
In an interview with Punch Newspaper’s Sunday Scoop, the Maga Don Pay singer said, “I guess people were surprised because they felt Don Jazzy could not do such. Why would you lock up your brother for doing a cover of a song. The track was titled, I’m Feeling Good, by 2baba featuring D’banj, while Don Jazzy produced it. If he is proud of what he did, he should respond. I signed an undertaken and they published it online with my signature. They claimed I was bailed with N500, 000 but that’s untrue. I didn’t put out the song; it was leaked online. They even told the police to put a laptop on my hands so that people would think I was a yahoo boy (Internet fraudster).”
According to Hansome, Charly Boy is a witness to the event and would stand for him in the case of a denial on Don Jazzy’s side.
He said, “I don’t care about meeting him or settling things. He is a producer, I am a producer too. If he buys seven houses and I buy one, it is the same bed we will sleep on. I don’t need to have many houses to be satisfied as a human being. I wish he would accept that he went too far by jailing me but he will not do that because of pride. You can only deceive people for a while, not forever. He would have said something if I was lying, but he didn’t admit or say a word because it was true. I am sure if he comes out to deny it, Charly Boy will speak.”
However, Don Jazzy is yet to react to the accusations.
