Being a celebrity in Kenya is no walk in the park. Ask one Jack Juma Bunga, popularly known as Otile Brown, about how being a celebrity in this country doesn’t necessarily translate to ‘big money’. His short lived romantic dalliance with socialite turned musician Vera Sidika opened the veil. Vera ranted on social media platforms how Otile Brown was perpetually broke. Apparently, he was asking for one favor after another and this did not augur well with one of the richest socialite in the region. And what irked Vera the most was the fact that he had a miniscule manhood.
Away from Vera tirades, Otile is not really what you would label a broke struggling artiste. In Kenyan standards, he has actually done very well. For a man whose journey to stardom was with its fair share of hurdles, Otile has churned hits after hits and consistently. Brought up and raised in Mombasa, the ‘Tamu Sana’ artist, songwriter and fashionista moved to Nairobi in 2012. His vocal prowess so impressed Dr Eddie that he signed him. He was now under Dreamland Music Entertainment record label. And this is a compressed version of his journey to the apex music career-atleast for now.
The singing sensation was destined for greater things. His lyrical mastery attracted A-list artists who lined up in droves to work with him. Some notables’ names he worked on collaboes with him include Khaligraph Jones, Kaka Sungura, DJ Piere, Bongo Shetta and some more works with Nigerians singers.

How Much Does Otile Brown Charge Per Show?
The vocalist claimed early this year that he is the highest paid artiste in Kenya. He was quoted as saying:
“Yes, I’m the highest-paid artiste. I don’t wanna put anybody down but trust me, I got the facts. People assume but they don’t know what’s going on on the ground.”
“We are talking about music, so I’m saying I’m the highest-paid artiste in the 254.”
While he did not put a figure on how much he demands to grace a show, the rnb singer takes home between kes150,000 and kes200,000 to thrill his legion of fans.
Properties under his name
He wanted a Mercedes Benz so bad that he loaned his ex-flame Vera Sidika. Bad mistake. Before he started pestering Vera to loan him kes500k top up to buy a Mercedes-if her version of events is to be believed-Otile drove a Mark X. Not a bad car but he desperately wanted an upgrade. Anyway, Otile eventually bought his dream car-a Mercedes Benz without the help of Vera.
