Fourteen years after releasing his hit song Dilemma, Nelly has finally revealed why singer Kelly Rowland was seen trying to text him using an excel spreadsheet.

The former Destiny's Child singer, who played Nelly's love interest in the video, tapped out a message on her Nokia phone into a spreadsheet - even though you obviously can't send messages using Excel...cause...duh!

It's become a huge joke to many fans who have joked about it for years and the rapper finally addressed the joke on The Project.

He said: "That was the thing at the time. That was the new technology at the time. It looks a little dated now, I can see that."

Nelly's landed the number one spot on music charts around the nation back in 2002.

The single was classed 3x Platinum after selling 250,000 units, and the album which it appeared on, Nellyville, peaked at number two.

Nelly is performing at Auckland's Vector Arena tonight and Christchurch's Horncastle Arena tomorrow.
