Kenyan singer-songwriter Otile Brown has released his debut album; Just In Love.
Jacob Obunga a.k.a. Otile Brown has blessed us with new music. A 10-song album and his first major project, following his entry into music industry in 2015. Since then, he has established himself as one of Kenya’s most exciting musical prospects, a leading voice in East Africa, and heartthrob (just saying). Just In Love is set to further enhance this, with collaborations in the album featuring East African giants: Mejja, Khaligraph Jones, Tanzania’s Juma Jux, Meddy from Rwanda and Burundian singer Kidum.
Speaking on the album’s release, Otile Brown says, “My fans should be prepared for a musical feast for the senses. Expect nothing but flames! I believe from this album, I’ll be able to win over new fans, because the vibes are different from what many are used to.”
The album explores themes of love and relationships, while drawing inspiration from a variety of different musical genres, such as R&B and Afropop. The album’s mid-tempo hits include “Regina”, “Hit and Run”, “Leila”, “Dusuma”, “Pretty Gal” and reggae infused “Umedamshi”, with the up-tempo groovy tracks including “Dede”, “Kosea”, “Watoto Na Pombe” and “Zaidi Yako”.
