At the time, Kelechi Orji, aka Kelly Hansome, was one of the leading artists in Nigeria. His songs, including Maga Don Pay and Like Play, ruled the airwaves and it was expected that the popularity translated to wealth too.
But in a chat with Sunday Scoop, Kelly Hansome said he was yet to make money from music. He stated, “I have never received royalties for Maga don Pay and all those songs that brought me to the limelight. Anyway, I am not looking forward to getting it because it doesn’t feed me. I am comfortable on my own; music has not really paid me. Have I signed an endorsement deal? Companies come to me but I don’t agree with their terms. You cannot use the money to buy myself because I am not desperate.
