Music has not paid me - Kelly Hansome

There was a time Kelly Hansome was one of the leading artistes in Nigeria. His songs Maga Don Pay and Like Play ruled the airwaves and it was expected that the popularity translated to wealth too .
Kelly Hansome has however said he was yet to make money from music, guessing maga didn't pay after all. 

He said “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 money to buy me because I am not desperate. I was hoping that the Copyright Society of Nigeria would do some calculation and pay artistes but nothing has happened. We have a body but I have not heard from them in a while. I don't even think of all that any longer.”
