Fresh from releasing his latest song dubbed, The Way You Are, Jacob Obunga alias Otile Brown was in Tanzania making waves.

Taking his time, he was hosted by Wasafi FM where he had a quite intense interview.

From talking about his childhood experience to being a businessman, he disclosed that he used to be in the soap business straight after high school. He would go to another job which involved counting sacks at Kenya Ports Aauthority.

“So nikachanga hela, nikaebuka Nairobi,” Otile said.

When asked why he doesn’t get much recognition when it comes to nominations and awards, Otile calmly said that he usually doesn’t talk about such.

“Mimi huwa nominated at the end of the day,” he continued. “Ukiniangalia  mimi huwa sipost. Nime nominatiwa mara nyingi, hata AFRIMA but sipost. “

When coaxed to give the reason behind his actions, he claimed that awards aren’t genuine anymore.  While stressing there is no award ceremony he would attend, he went ahead to give a shoutout to Khaligraph Jones who was recently crowned the best hip-hop artiste in Africa.

“The best rapper in Africa and I believe that… But I don’t believe in awards.”

Touching on why he deleted the song Vera, Otile said that he did it because Vera didn’t like it.

“Shout out Vee. She is my…can we say fre-nemy,” Otile said with a smirk on his face.

After being cornered by the presenters about his affair with Vera and his rise to success, he confessed what really happened.

Mimi ni msanii mwenye nilikuwa nafanya vizuri kabla Vera…Mimi sikuwahi mtongoza Vera, wajua watu hawajui.”

“She reached out. Alikuwa ananipigia sana ile time nilikuwa nafanya ngoma ya Chagua La Moyo. Hata nilikuwa sizipokei bro.”

Stressing that he was never attracted to Vera Sidika, Otile said that he now wants to clear things.
