The Maga Don Pay singer shared the story on his Instagram page while celebrating a friend’s birthday.

The track is titled I’m Feeling Good and it is by 2baba and it featured D’banj. Don Jazzy produced it. If he is proud of what he did, he should respond.”
Hansome also stated that Charly Boy could testify to what he was saying, as he was one of the people who helped him. He said, “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).”
