Kelly Hansome Slams ‘Talentless’ DJ Cuppy, Calls Her ‘An Embarrassment To Naija Music’

Nigerian singer, Kelly Hansome, has taken a swipe at fellow singer and disc jockey, DJ Cuppy, saying her music sucks.

Kelly Hansome was reacting to a trending video of DJ Cuppy performing her song ‘Gelato’ at her Gold Dust Conference.

In an Instagram post on Friday, the singer described Cuppy, who is the daughter of billionaire businessman, Femi Otedola, as “an embarrassment” to the Nigerian music industry.

He wrote: “If I talk now haters will say their daily prayer “bla bla bla”… “Your career don die”. “U’re looking for attention”. “You’re hating”, meanwhile the person chatting has never stood out for anything in life. No be only GELATO, na MALAWI. What is this? This is an insult to music as a career and an embarrassment to NAIJA Music. This is like mocking real Musicians, when did we get here? You cannot buy talent. They would’ve paid me or someone to write a proper song for her, bring out her British accent & all but NO.”

He continued, “You would have just come out on Hiptv to insult all of us all 1 by 1, this is wicked. 9ja music has lost bearing, chai!

“Do you think music is child’s play? If she wasn’t Otedola’s daughter, would you listen to this if it was someone else? Music is not for everyone, if you ain’t got it you ain’t got it. I go soon leave this music for una.”

But some supporters of DJ Cuppy came to her rescue in the comments section, with many of them saying Kelly Hansom is rather the attention seeker who should focus more on his “dying” music career.
