The R&B star discovered his talent at the age of 13 and started writing songs and singing while still in Mombasa before shifting to Nairobi in 2012. After arriving in the city Brown decided to pay Citizen Radio a visit with the hopes of meeting Willy M Tuva.

At the time CDs were the real deal and he was hoping to hand Mzazi Willy Mtuva his CD probably to earn airplay through the “Mambo Mseto show”. While waiting for Mzazi he bumped into Comedian Jalang’o and the comedian was quite impressed with his talent, the two discussed his talent and his future goals in the industry.

Jalang’o who offered to help him in his career advised him to change his genre from rapping and focus on singing, in which he had noticed that he was more good than in rapping.

Jalang’o was ready to sponsor the ambitious musician at the time and after his first rap song, he told him to choose his producer between Dr. Eddie and Wyre. Otile Brown chose Dr. Eddie who owns Dreamland Music as his producer.

After working with Dr. Eddie for a while Otile Brown became the first musician to be signed by Dr. Eddie under his record label Dreamland Music.

Jalas assisted in funding Brown’s first video and things have never been the same again. He has since then done a number of collabos hit songs with high-profile musicians that have ranked him at the top. However, in 2017 the singer moved out of Dreamland and became independent.

The same year he released his first album dubbed “Best of Otile Brown”
later Otile Brown settled his differences with Dr. Eddie and they went back to being buddies.
