Nigerian singer and music producer Kelly Handsome has spoken out again affirming his earlier claims that some years ago Don Jazzy got him arrested and locked up in police custody.
In a chit chat with Sunday Scoop the singer real name Kelechi Orji revealed more details surrounding his arrest by the police as orchestrated by Don Jazzy.
“It was when Don Jazzy arrested me that I met the soldier I mentioned in my post. I wanted to wish him a happy birthday and I remembered the event. 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”, he narrated.
The ‘Maga Don Pay’ crooner stated that social activist and former singer Charly Boy was fully aware of the incident at the time. He also said he was not ready to settle his aggrievance with Don Jazzy anytime soon.
“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).”
“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.”
