Otile Brown’s special dedication to his late mother

Kenyan RnB singer Otile Brown has composed a special song dubbed Mama, dedicated at his late mother – wishing she could be alive to witness how her son is fairing on with life.

In the song, Otile confesses that he never got a chance to tell how he loved his mother or even ask for forgiveness for all his wrong doings.

“Sema mami natamani anga mara moja uamke nikuone; Sikuwahi kukuambia nakupenda kabla uondoke,

Na ina ichoma moyo wangu, ina ikwaza nafsi yangu, maana sikupata muda mama yangu, ya kuomba msahama wa kosa langu," Otile says in the song.

The singer goes to the mention that sometimes he locks himself in a room and cry like a baby, wondering if his late mother is proud of who he is.

“Sometimes najifungia chumbani mwenyewe, najiliza kama mtoto! Je unajivunia mimi kua mwanako wewe kwenye dunia yenye changamoto,”

“Tena bado nazingatia mafunzo yako, busara, heshima na upole, ingawa bunadamu kazi. I miss you, yani leo Zaidi ya jana,” sings Otile

The song was produced by Neksazy from Tanzania, while its mixing and mastering was done by producer Ihaji.
