Veteran gospel artist Jimmy Gait has urged Otile Brown to ditch secular music in favour og gospel. Speaking during an interview with Mzazi Willy Mtuva, Jimmy Gait praised Otile Brown’s talent and his ability to write sweet songs, as he encouraged him to cross over to the gospel ministry.
“Otile Brown njoo kwa Yesu umwimbie Yesu. Hivo ndivyo ningemwambia. Kwa sababu ile following Otile akonayo, akona talent sana, Anaandika wimbo unaskia yaani huu wimbo ni mtamu. He has the talent kwa hivyo ningemkaribisha akuje kwa Gospel tuendeleze injili,” he said.
Jimmy Gait’s appeal comes barely two weeks after King Kaka ranked Otile Brown as the number one artist in Kenya. In an Instagram video uploaded on his page, King Kaka asked Otile if he knew that he is currently the number one artist in the country, to which he replied that he didn’t know but accepted the validation.
“Nakwambia buda sijui ka unajua we ndo number one artist in the country?” King Kaka asked.
“Sijui lakini King akisema, that’s a validation bro, a hundred percent,” Otile answered.
Currently, Otile is flying high with his feature in King Kaka’s latest song ‘Fight’, which dropped a few days ago. ‘Fight’ is an upbeat jam in which King and Otile harmonize to deliver a hit about enjoying life without fighting anybody.
‘Fight’ has been received well and is already trending on YouTube at number seven with over 300,000 views.
