Although Kelly Hansome has not released an album in the recent time in theNigeria music industry, he has remained a relevant name as the industry grows.
After his problem with Kennis Music, which led to the Imo State born artiste not having an album in the market since the release of ‘Too much money album’ about four years ago.
Recently he recessed ‘We build America maixtape’ in the United States of America where he currently reside and says that his album will be dropping soon.
Kelly Hansome’s album is highly anticipated both at home and abroad but the question is how can this happen, when Kenny Ogungbe, the owner of Kennis Music recently said this?
“Kelly Hansome can never release any album anywhere in the world without first settling with kennis music. If anybody wants to sign him, they must first talk to kennis music. Any other label that does not want to loose money or get their fingers burnt, should call kennis music. My lawyers have not worked in a long time and I have been paying yearly retainership and they are ready to work this year to make sure that our rights are not trampled upon”
Recently Kelly release a single title ‘Take this message” where he sued for peace between him and Kennis Music, saying ‘Take this message to Kennis, I still gat love for you all”. There he explained that things can fall apart causing contracts to no longer hold, but the most important thing is that everyone will keep moving on in life.
In the same song, Kelly Hansome mentioned Don Jazy, D’Banj, Wnade Coal, Ice Prince, M.I, Terry G and others saying it does not matter if he caused the problem between them, “We are still one Naija, one voice in unity”
When contacted, Kelly argued that he is not suing for peace because he is ready to make a full time comeback in the industry, he said “I’m not begging nobody, the issue with Kennis is just about settling with them which is in the pipeline right now.”
Will suing for peace solve the many controversies around Kelly Hansome? Or is it settling with Kennis Music and starting a fresh chapter on his music career?
Most analysts will say that his talent is not a doubt, but an artiste of his caliber needs contents in the market and not on the media, so we await to see if Kelly Hansome’s absence has affected him.
