• Otile said haters do not pay attention to the message of the songs
Singer Otile Brown has hit back at those criticising his English songs.
Taking to Instagram stories, Otile said most of those hating on his English songs do not pay attention to the message of the songs.
"Do you even listen to my English songs or since you love my Swahili songs you get bored even before giving them a chance?" he asked.
"The pen game, arrangement and melodies, if given a chance, I would take over the continent and even the world, that’s not a secret."
In yet another post, the singer, who is on a tour in the United States, urged fans to be open-minded to new entries by artistes.
Otile said he would continue doing his Swahili songs but would also fearlessly cross international boundaries.
"My lingo must be way ahead of y'all. Find taste and pay attention," he said.
"Try giving East African artistes a chance to try different sounds and vibes. We are not copying but creating different sounds. Look at many artistes repeating the same flow and arrangement.
"I will continue giving you Swahili songs but will not fear trying international songs, and I have got two collaborations to keep you busy as I take a break."
