Otile Brown Interview

Interviewer: Is Otile Brown your real name?

Otile Brown: No, it’s a nickname.

Interviewer:  What is your real name?

Otile Brown: I’d rather keep people guessing because I don’t like it.

Interviewer:  Have you thought of changing it legally?

Otile Brown: Yes, and I could. But even though I dislike it, I treasure it as well because it’s the name my mother (RIP) gave me. She gave it to me out of love and I value it, especially since she’s no longer here.

Interviewer:  When did you officially join the music industry?

Otile Brown: It’s been about a year now… and in that time I’ve released a couple of singles and collaborations with some of the best rappers in Kenya — like Khaligraph and King Kaka.

Interviewer:  Did you have a godfather, or a figure of some sort, to guide you?

Otile Brown: Not really, but Jalang’o pointed me in the right direction. He gave me two options, to choose either Wyre or Dr. Eddie to be my producer. I chose Eddie.

Interviewer:  Why not Wyre?

Otile Brown: Because he is very busy. He is an artist like me and I needed someone who could give me their full attention.

Interviewer:  Were you born in Mombasa?

Otile Brown: Yes.

Interviewer:  Does that make you a Mombasa or Nairobi artiste?

Otile Brown: I find it awkward when people talk about a Mombasa or Nairobi artiste, or industry for that matter. It does not make sense to me. Yes, I was born in Mombasa, Mikindani, but I’m an artist representing Kenya, East Africa, and Africa.

Interviewer:  When did you relocate?

Otile Brown: In 2003. I had a job in Mombasa and, whenever I saved enough money, I would come to Nairobi. I was a musician but I didn’t do it commercially. I wasn’t ready yet to put myself out there because I didn’t think I was good enough. I figured out going back and forth between Mombasa and Nairobi wouldn’t help me stabilize my career and Dr. Eddie offered to house me.

Interviewer:  In his own house?

Otile Brown: Yes

Interviewer:  For how long?

Otile Brown: For about seven months and then I moved out. He has a big mansion; sometimes we wouldn’t even see each other for three days and had to call each other to find out if either of us was in the house.

Interviewer:  The blogs have it that you used to sell ‘chang’aa’ before you got into music…

Otile Brown: Yes, I had to. I know how far I’ve come and that’s why I’m so hungry in this game, waiting for my moment when I get to the top. I know I’m headed there. My mom died when I was about to turn 13. I don’t like talking about it but I don’t shy away from speaking about it because I know it could motivate someone. Sometimes when I would get caught, the officers would frogmarch me past the school compound where other children would see me. It was embarrassing. I didn’t like doing it but I had to survive.

Interviewer:  Most of your songs are about love; are you in love?

Otile Brown: Not at the moment.

Interviewer: Where do you get the inspiration from?

Otile Brown: It’s my job, it’s my business. I don’t have to go through it to sing it. If I make my listeners feel like I’m in love and get them to feel a certain way, then my job is done. I don’t have to go through something to get an idea of what to sing about, but when it touches someone out there and inspires them…

Interviewer:  Have you ever been deeply in love?

Otile Brown: Yes I have, it was intense. There was this woman back in Mombasa; we went to a party together and she got drunk and just when guys were leaving she trashed the whole place. I took the blame even though the neighbors clearly saw her do it. I still insisted it was me. I spent a week in the cells before I was bailed out.

Interviewer:  What is the genre of your music?

Otile Brown: It’s called Kunitz. Tanzanians call it Bongo but from my knowledge, it is derived from the Arabs, which the Mijikenda borrowed.

Interviewer:  You featured King Kaka on the song ‘Alivyonipenda’. How did you meet?

Otile Brown: We met at iClub and exchanged phone numbers. I remember he told me he had an idea for a song he wanted us to work on together. I sent my verses and chorus and stuff but before that, I told him there’s a song I wanted to feature him in. He agreed. I sent it and he liked it.

Interviewer:  This was ‘Alivyonipenda’?

Otile Brown: Yes.

Interviewer:  What happened to the first one?

Otile Brown: This industry is funny. I know people who have many songs but have never released them. Things keep changing really fast, beats, style…

Interviewer:  Why is that?

Otile Brown: People get a lot of advice from people who think they know best. There’s a big artiste in the industry (I won’t mention the name) with whom I did a song. I’m just exhausted because he keeps changing his verse, about four times now. So when he was ready to release it, it wasn’t the right time for me. There are songs that you do but the timing is never right and they never see the light of day.

Interviewer:  What about Khaligraph? What was your first reaction when you met him?

Otile Brown: He’s not the arrogant person people think he is. I’ve known Khaligraph for a while now and he’s the coolest guy ever. People judge others unfairly. Don’t believe everything you see on television.

Singer Otile Brown has found new love after his ugly breakup with socialite Vera Sidika and says he is finally ready to settle down. Otile introduced the new woman in his life in a video he posted on Instagram that captured them in a loving embrace. The girl identifies herself as Nabayet on Instagram.

The ‘Samantha’ hitmaker went ahead to shower her with praises, saying she is his soulmate. In addition, he claimed that he was now done being a player and is ready to settle down and live a peaceful life.

“Yani wewe na uhuni na ujanja wako wote lazima utakutana na kiboko yako atakaye kutuliza.. Wifi yenu @nabbi__ wewe kiboko.. tell e’m am done done Nimewala sana sai nimetulia staki mbwembwe,” wrote Otile Brown.

Otile Brown flaunts new car after second breakup with Vera Sidika

Musician Otile Brown has flaunted his new Mercedes Benz just days after his second bitter break up with socialite Vera Sidika. The purchase of the Mercedes Benz was the cause of friction between Otile and Vera after the socialite claimed the musician had begged her for a Sh500k top up in order to purchase the car.

The two had an ugly spat that featured screenshots and a vlog by Vera explaining that she had had enough of Otile’s money borrowing. Vera released WhatsApp screenshots of her conversations with Otile in which she responded that she was not in a position to help with the loan request. This was just days after they had kissed and made up in Dubai.

It seems an angry Otile went mute on Vera after his request was turned down, that leading to the socialite to wonder whether he rekindled their old love just for the money. Otile will later also release his cache screenshots of conversations in which he had agreed to help Vera pay rent for her salon.

And in a subsequent Insta story post, he explained how he craved to add the Mercedes Benz to his parking lot just to boost his after being hurt by Vera.  He added that he could afford it. Otile also apologized to Vera for hitting back with the salon rent discussion, saying he did it out of anger as he loved Vera dearly but maintained that the relationship is over.

Vera Sidika Exposes Otile Brown After 3rd Break-Up

29/10/2018 | SDE

The on and off relationship between socialite Vera Sidika and singer Otile Brown has taken a nose dive.

The once mushy lovers are throwing Molotov cocktails at each other and are not sparing any drop in airing private details of their once juicy relationship.

For starters, Vera claims that the relationship was dead on the tracks before it took off after the Chaguo la Moyo singer starting asking for money. A move she said was an immediate turn-off.

She adds that the ‘borrowing’ climaxed after they got back together following their much-publicized breakup when he allegedly asked for an Sh500, 000 loan as a top up for a brand new Mercedes Benz.

“As much as we love so deep. Women do find it a turn off when a man keeps asking for money. Regularly. From week two of dating, claiming he will refund & he never did. I have never even once in my life asked him for any money. This time it happened 2 days after reconciliation and it ended up looking like the only reason he came back was for the money. Because when I said I didn’t have 500k he went mute for 1 week and the next time I saw him he was claiming that relationship ain’t working.

“I refuse to be used financially or for fame. If such a person walks away coz u didn’t give them money …it’s more like good riddance,”

she posted.

Wait, there is more.

The Vera Beauty Parlour owner also claimed that she had been also supporting Otile’s ‘cousins’, paid for his studio sessions and flight bills.

A position disputed by Otile who disclosed that indeed he asked for the money but it was just that, a loan, that he would reimburse had she come through.

He added that her rant was ‘aibu ndogo ndogo’ and that they normally borrow money from each. Otile claimed he had recently paid Vera’s salon rent.

The singer reiterated that the reason for the breakup was not about money but Vera’s push that he gets her pregnant and get married.

In a rejoinder, Vera said she had never asked Otile for money, was never broke and had moved on after the break-up.
