Kelly Hansome Arrested By Mohit's Crew, The Whole Saga

A few weeks ago Kelly Hansome released a remake of a song, I’m feeling good which was originally recorded by 2face & dbanj. The “remix” of the song featured 2face & Kelly Hansome and was on the web for a few hours before taken down.

Shortly afterwards, there were rumours that Kelly Handsome was arrested and later released on bail after admitting to infringement of Mo’Hits copyright, it was also alleged that he signed an Undertaking and Apology in favour of  Mo’Hits. Nonetheless, he denied this by releasing an official statement which read;
"Rumor has it, that as of Yesterday October 24 2011, Kelechi Orji aka Kelly Hansome was arrested concerning the copyright of Tuface’s featuring D’banj “FEELIN GOOD” Freestyle Remix.  Sources confirm that was not true, KH was not arrested but only simple asked to appear at the local police station. Kelly Hansome’s lawyer was allegedly supposed to meet up with member of Mo-Hits to resolve the issue of Copyright, but instead the issue ended up at the police station. The Lawyer was asked to request the presence of Kelly, which he immediately did, and Kelly obliged, coming down to the station with another lawyer who was sent by KEYOEMO (EFCC Official Lawyer ). Kelly was asked to sign documents stating he will take down the song from the internet; this was after it was proven that Mo-Hits have the legal rights to the said song. The issue is now resolved. A Kelly Hansome Representative will be dropping a video in a few hours in regards to this matter. KELLY HANSOME WAS NOT ARRESTED!"
He even tweeted
"I was never arrested so any media outlet that has published that better have a copy of the warrant posted alongside. God bless the media‘, @KellyHansome. ‘I do hereby order all online media outlets to desist 4rm further use of the song (feeling good by Tuface&Dbanj- Kelly Hansome remix)". 
Don jazzy responded to this in an email to TheNetng which read ...

Thanks for taking the time to confirm from me instead of jumping into conclusions like some other people. I really appreciate. 
Kelly Hansome was not Arrested cos if we really intend to do that he’ll not be out. All what we did was involve the law so as not to take matters into our hands like most people might result to in this kind of situation. We just wanted a proper documentation to make him hands off Mohits intellectual property. 
We were informed of him using the beat I made for D’banj and 2face that’s not even supposed to be out at all, but was leaked by a music site some weeks back. Despite the fact that Kelly has not really been a lover of Mohits which he has made clear in countless unreplied diss tracks, we still made an effort to send him messages not to release the said track. But he stubbornly refused and went ahead to release the track. That is why we now decided to get the law involved by sending our lawyers to get on it. Police was just involved obviously to make sure things don’t get rowdy. We do not own or control the police to tell them how to do their job. You know how some police can take some matters personal anyway. All in all we got our apology letter and he signed the undertaking to leave our music alone. A lot of people including MI have remixed our works before in the past and we did not complain cos it’s allowed sometimes. But not in this case I’m sorry. 
A collabo between D’banj and 2face (who is our mentor) is a big deal for us and we intend to still work on the original song. So Kelly using it is not acceptable for now. I do not believe in beef like my fans know. But come on, there is only so much insult one can take, and riding on a Don Jazzy beat without my permission after openly calling us all sort of names is definitely a cheeky move from him. 
This incident has been resolved and doesn’t stop me from dancing to some of his diss songs that I like and the ones he might come up with after this. Neither does it stop me from being his fan. I think he is a talented brother with so much potentials if he could calm down a little #myopinion.There was no form of violence recorded in resolving this issue. 
The music industry moving forward is all we preach but not by beef or taking other people’s property. Please read with maturity and understand that we mean nobody any harm. If you think otherwise then I’m sorry. Maybe you’ll understand someday. Thanks for the love and support. May God bless us all. IDJA
