The buzz has been on all week long. Kelly Hansome dissed Mo-Hitts, MI, 2 shotz, and Kenny Ogungbe. Everyone has been talking… Kelly just dey yab dey go o. It’s been beef week in the Naija ent industry and it has been primarily centered around Kelly hansome.
Late last year, Kelly stunned the Naija scene with his track Igwe (Kom Kom) where he just flat out dissed Wande Coal, Don Jazzy, DBanj and Terry G. Although it looked to come out of nowhere the gist is that Wande Coal’s “Who Born The Maga” was supposed to be a diss song to Kelly Handsome (or at least Kelly took it that way), and so Kelly “fired” back with Igwe (Kom Kom). He also claimed Terry G took some shots at him also. He later put out a video saying he wasn’t trying to diss anyone and that they are all cool.
Fast forward to Tuesday, April 12th 2010, and Boom!! Kelly Hansome drops another diss track (Catch me if you can) and this time he extended his jabs to MI (and his chocolate city crew), 2 shotz, and Kenny Ogungbe of Kennis Music, who he was formally signed to. Talk about going head on with the heavy weights in Naija entertainment.
His reason for taking shots at MI? A line in MI’s fast money fast cars that goes “Kelly Hansome is hansome, I tell em when I see him, but if I want a man it will be Keke or D1.” That definitely rubbed Kelly the wrong way as he stated in this new track.
Kenny’s beef arised from some record label misunderstandings that happened while Kelly was signed to Kennis Music. Details are not exactly clear. As for 2 shotz, I’m not exactly sure where that came from. Clearly Kelly Handsome has an agenda, and he’s not holding anything back. Heck, his upcoming album, is titled “Names Of Noise Makers,” so expect more noise makers to be listed as tracks are released. Check out the track, “Catch me if you can” and proceed further to view MI’s unofficial reply on twitter.
Shortly after the song was released on notjustok.com, Don Jazzy of Mo-hitts had a couple of comments, but MI’s “10 things to do when Kelly Hansome disses you” was the highlight of the day on Tuesday. Here are the tweets from MI:
#10 (ten things to do after kelly hansome disses you): wonder why ‘kelly rowland’ is dissing you and why she sounds like a nigerian man

#1: (ten steps after kelly hansome disses u): Remember.. You are still beautiful.. And God and ur parents love you still..
Needless to say, anyone following MI that day was clearly entertained. 2shotz hasn’t said anything yet, but you never know. Wande Coal’s video for “Who Born The Maga” will be dropping soon, and who is to say there wont be a small jab here or there, esp with all this stuff going on.
To cap it all off, T-Money released his diss track to Kelly Handsome titled “Warning Shots.” T-Money goes hard on the track, and stands up for MI, the mo-hitts crew and Kennis Music.
It’s been an interesting week to say this least. Let’s all remember that it’s all fun and games until things get out of hand, and we certainly hope it doesn’t get there. Have a nice “beef free” weekend.
