Otile Brown has responded to Jalang’o after he compared him and other three artistes with Wasafi Records artistes.
Jalang’o took to social media to ask his followers of they knew four artistes from Kenya, stating that they can take WCB artistes head to head.
“254🇰🇪🇰🇪🇰🇪 Do you know these guys Can take Wasafi head to head! Actually they are better! All they need is your support! What Do you think?” he wrote.
This did not go welll with Otile who responded to his post, asking him to stop with comparison because it makes them look miserable and small.
“Am not trying to attack you bro but enough talk about wasafi, we are good stop making us look miserable and small with all these debates every time, artist from other countries are watching. We ain’t small like y’all make it look, kama hatujafika tutafika tu, I believe the more you work hard and smart the more you level up. And you can’t force anybody to support you or support what they don’t feel…..watu wapambane, there’s no other way around it….”
He went on to advice his fellow artistes to work extra hard because the music game is not easy and they have to give their listeners good music.
“And to my fellow artists in the game and the up and coming artists, hakuna sympathy kwa game, go hard….If they ain’t listening make them listen by doing great music or something that can capture their attention. Mnatuaibisha kila mara na hizi debates zenu. Am not trying to go back and forth with anybody…It’s enough….Itafika wakati wasanii wa nje watatuona kama wasanii wanaoteseka wakati tunatoka kati ya nchi bora Africa. Uzalendo ni kuficha uchi wa watu wenu ata ukaulizwa hali yenu vipi? Utasema “tuko vizuri”. Stop it. Mna boa, me nimechoka bana. Telling y’all with love. Haya utaskia he’s not humble! Just stop it!”
The debate about Kenyan artistes and artistes from different countries especially from Tanzania and Uganda has been ongoing for a really long time. Many Kenyan artistes have complained that Kenyan music is not appreciated as much as it should be.
