BN Bytes: Kelly Hansome gets his First Tattoos for $4,000

Published

 on

Just in case you’ve been wondering what has been happening to Nigerian music artiste, Kelly Hansome, he just informed us that he has been getting his first tattoos at the cost of $4,000. He went all the way to Mexico to get his tattoos which he regards as  an “investment on my body.”

In an email sent to Bellanaija by his PR, he spoke about the significance of the tattoos which cover most of his upper body.

He enlisted the services of renowned tattoo artist Mr Roger aka Da Doctor of Mexico. Each tattoo was carefully thought of and holds a special meaning. All in all, the inking took approximately 8 hours from beginning to end and cost $4,000 US Dollars. The artiste sites this expenditure as an “investment on my body.”

Across his collar bone reads “WE BUILT AMERICA” which is the title of his recently released mixtape. This mixtape is one of the most downloaded and respected mixtapes by a Nigerian artiste to date. On his left arm is a depiction of praying hands with a microphone in between them and the inscription “Work Hard and Stay Humble” which is his Life Motto. On his chest are metaphorical characters depicting “clowning” the competition and “eye” on money. Lastly, on the underside of his left arm is “HANSOME” (the N is the Nigerian Naira symbol, S is the American Dollar symbol, and E is the European Euro symbol) which is a constant reminder that according to history, ONCE UPON A TIME, 1DOLLAR WAS EQUAL TO 1NAIRA and this can be achieved if and only if we, NIGERIANS, can WORK HARD AND STAY HUMBLE.

Hmm… interesting. What do you think about his new body art?

    “Just in case you’ve been wondering what has been happening to Nigerian music artiste, Kelly Hansome, he just informed us that he has been getting his first tattoos at the cost of $4,000.” – No, no, I wasnt really wondering though. I dont want to be rude but honestly, whispers: “no one cares”.

    The word investment has been abused severely.

    Clearly he was high when this was being done….i mean look at his eyes. Wait till he sobers up. BN will update us with a follow up “Kelly Hansome, Now an Ordained Minister” where he’ll also talk about this tattoo procedure and how he came to his senses after the incident.

    Investing in his body? Investing in your body is not getting ugly tats, my man but WORKING OUT to be fit, strong and HEALTHY! And to have paid $4k in MEXICO for tats is the height of stupidity! If he paid that much and the ink was done by a celebrity tattoo artist, I could understand but he went to MEXICO to pay that much money for ink…*smdh* And who is the “WE” he’s saying built America? CHEI! Sef, what am I even talking sef, I look at him and I see the bulb is a tad dim.

    ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE DROPPED A BAD COMMENT ON KELLY HANSOME ARE WAY MORE STUPID THAN i THOUGHT. IT IS OBVIOUS THIS YOUNG MAN HAS BEEN RIPPED OFF BY THE SAME PEOPLE YOU IDIOTS CELEBRATE EVERYDAY AND NOBODY PUT OUT A SINGLE NEWS ABOUT IT. hATE IT OR LOVE IT, KELLY HANSOME WILL BOUNCE BACK AND WHEN HE DOES, THE SAME IDIOTS WILL STILL BE THE ONES TO HAIL HIM. THERE IS NO ARTISTE IN THE NIGERIAN MUSIC INDUSTRY THAT STRONGER AND MORE DETERMINED THAN KELLY AND I AM NOT HIFAN BUT I HAVE HEARD FROM BOTH SIDES. IF YOU KNEW HIM WHEN HE WAS IN MADONNA UNIVERSITY, THEN NONE OF YOU WILL EVER OPEN YOUR MOUTH TO TALK ABOUT HIS CAREER BEING DEAD BECAUSE IF THERE IS A CAREER THAT WILL LIVE EVEN WHEN WE ALL ARE GONE, IT MUST BE KELLY HANSOME’S AND DON’T FORGET THAT THIS IS ENTERTAINMENT BUSINESS. GOD SHOULD HELP SOME OF US TO LEAVE IGNORANCE ALONE. RIDE ON KELLY, DO YOUR THING.

    I dont go to bed everynight without listening to Kelly Handsome’s ‘Ghetto’ and ‘Mama’. Kelly is the best Nigerian Artistic. Except you listen to his work, do not insult Kelly. He is a great man.

    What interests me most is the Euro and the American dollars money which o know was very low before the eyes of Nigeria people in 1983 after and before the festac feast, led by Biafran enemy to squash our lives money and destiny.
    When i talk of dates, people think that i am as old as Abram.
    Forget about the tattoo. If i know, and had contacts with this people who liftted up victorious fingers for what is not there.
    This could be doen with Uli, a tradition mark with incantations from the hol,y ones, not what you see they show on their movies i mean the real one.
    Don’t tell me you did not make a promise. You don’t need oat because you are a son of the soil a chosen son of man, a son of Igbo.
    Don’t you know what Orji means. In short, i don’t like people touching the body of a holy son of Igbo man. I am a races. Knelly if you don’t know that inwardly, Yourba people are knief, you better know it from me. Let someone challeng on it.
    Beware Knelly. I hate anyone from Yoruba Land i don’t tell them not to attck me.
    When i sited you at the first time, that was already futurn, but same people seized it and later bring you out to claim they gave you power or what.
    Kelly Hansome, you don’t need all this than know yourself. Trust nobody no one is friend to any the would lead you into a pit.
    Very soon they will begin to invite you here are there obvious to harden your biirth labour for which many have died out of frustration, depression and anxiety..
    If this woman you mentioned is same trasnmiting words of youtubr, ask yourself how would he be doing that job without any trouble. All will reap what they sow.
    Kelly, you are a Dr, in music, a mejor genaral with a blessed voice.
    Peace of my Holy Father be with you.
