Otile Brown on the Spot for Reportedly Conning US-Based Kenyan Musician KSh 80k

Singer Jacob Obunga, alias Otile Brown has been accused of conning a US-based Kenyan upcoming musician KSh 80,000. 

The musician identified as Alberndra Mwanakendra claimed that he approached Otile for a music collaboration in 2021 and the singer agreed. 

According to a story published on Citizen Digital, the two then started texting via WhatsApp and Otile quoted the said amount as payments for two Kenyan producers who were supposed to work on their collaboration. 

Otile also sent Mwanakendra videos of himself reportedly recording their song in the studio, convincing him to send the money. 

Mwanakendra sent the money in four instalments, KSh 5,500 (November 11, 2021), KSh 45,200 (November 26, 2021), KSh 22,200 (November 30, 2021) and KSh 5,000 (January 15, 2022).

After receiving the money, the upcoming musician noted that Otile stopped communicating with him claiming that he was busy travelling for performances. 

The artiste noted that he got fed up with Otile’s lies and demanded his money back but the musician kept taking him around in circles. 

When reached for comments over the claims, Otile’s manager, Noriega dismissed the claims noting that the singer cannot transact business by himself. 

“Otile cannot con anyone, I don’t even want to be rude but why would he need to con someone KSh 80,000? Otile is a brand, he does not handle any business by himself, the management does,” Noriega said. 

On the other hand, Otile admitted that there was an arrangement for a collabo with Mwanakendra but at a later time.
