Otile Brown has been making rounds in the news ever since he came out to announce that he will be contesting for the Embakasi East parliamentary seat alongside Babu Owino. His campaign poster stirred up a lot of animosity among the incumbent MP and his team who embarked on belittling him to just a slay queen.

Now the dust on that issue seems to have settled as Otile is now focusing on ‘’fraud’’ music award ceremonies, in particular…the AFRIMMAs.  Otile Brown has been very vocal of late. One thing he has learned is not to stand up for things that are not worth his time and energy.

After the AFRIMA nominations list came out , Mr. Otile could not hold back but express his reservations when it comes to those particular awards and their organizers. His comments seemed to paint them as being ingenuous.

Nominated for an award under the category of Best Male East Africa alongside top names such as Khaligraph Jones, Diamond, Harmonize, Eddy Kenzo, Rayvanny, Ali Kiba among others, Otile did not seem impressed as expected.

He instead had some not so kind words about the nomination and took to his socials to express his sentiments.T

''AFRIMA bado wana ni nomiten'gi Always count me out y'all... nominate hao wasanii wanajiita wanyama it's not my style.''

He  also went ahead to explain why he doesn’t want to be a part of the awards.

"A while back I was called by some award show and guaranteed a win if I paid for my flight expenses to attend the award ceremony. That why me and my team canceled story za awards. Some artist do that but I can never do such a thing .. I'm true to my self.Thought it's only fair if my fans get to know that..."
