Kenyan singer Jacob Obunga, otherwise known as Otile Brown has dismissed claims that he held discussions with Machakos Governor Dr Alfred Mutua.

Through his Instagram page, the Machakos governor had on Monday, July 19 shared photos alongside the singer, noting that they held talks and vowed to support him and other Kenyan artistes.

“I had a wonderful time interacting with one of Kenya’s successful and talented music artists Otile Brown. We shared jokes, aspirations and mambo ya maisha. I got to learn of his humble beginnings and his quest to do well,” Mutua wrote.

Adding; “He is currently completing a video of his new song which features Tanzanian singer Darasa. The sky is the limit. I will support him and other Kenyan and East African artists grow and also ensure they receive their dues. As a filmmaker and supporter of the arts, I am a believer in the financial growth of artists.”

However, Otile Brown dismissed the claims clarifying that they did not hold any form of discussions, further hitting out at the county boss for riding on his wave.

“Don’t try riding on my lil wave, I’m not with all that bs… We ain’t friends, we didn’t discuss anything. You asked for a picture and that’s all… I wonder,” he wrote.

Otile Brown is currently the country’s top artiste on YouTube with 834,000 subscribers and over 206 million views.

His song, Dusuma, featuring Rwanda’s Meddy is Kenya’s most viewed song with over 30 million views.

Otile Brown is currently in Tanzania working on a project featuring Swahili rapper Darassa.
