Bad Man Shivo aka Otile Brown has broken his silence hours after his song “Japo Kidogo” featuring Khaligraph Jones was pulled down from YouTube.

According to Otile, the video to his new tune was deleted from YouTube due to management issues, which he explained that he is not at liberty to discuss with the public.

“To my loyal fans who have always supported me, I know there’s a lot of speculation going on as to why my newly released project titled “Japo Kidogo” featuring Khaligraph Jones was pulled down from Youtube. The video was pulled down from youtube just 2 days after it’s release due to management issues that am not in Liberty to discuss unfortunately, even if I wanted to. This is what I would like to say though, there’s a lot of hard work, a lot of resources/money and a lot of time that goes into such a project thus my management and I would not just pull down a video just like that. We respect artistry and the craft but at the end of the day it’s still business and we have to respect that. All I promise is we are still going to give you our fans what you deserve which is good music. #BadMan . #WegotnothingbutLove! bless y’all” explained Otile Brown.

On the other hand, Khaligraph Jones had mentioned that he is not aware, as to why the song was pulled down from the streaming site, adding that only Otile Brown can explain the circumstances that led the song to be deleted as it was uploaded on his YouTube channel.

“This video Has been pulled down from YouTube and I don't know why, only @otilebrown has the answers, just when I had successfully launched my Singing career, Itabidi sasa SUPERMAN imekuja.. #respecttheogs #mrinternational,” wrote Papa Jones.

The song in Question “Japo Kidogo” was uploaded on YouTube on Tuesday and it had over 200k Views.

The song was produced by Vicky Pon Dis (audio) while its video was directed by Enos Olik. In the song, Otile had gone out of his comfort zone, of singing slow love songs to something a bit faster.

This is not the first time Otile’s video is being removed from YouTube. In October last year, Otile’s collabo with Bong Star Aslay “Nikupe Nini” was also withdrawn from YouTube under unclear circumstances and up to date the song has never been re-uploaded.

In September 2018, Otile Brown’s song Chaguo la Moyo featuring Sanaipei Tande was removed from YouTube due to copyright issues. The copyright issue were raised by a lady identified as Janet Kipsang, after the song had clocked over 1.4 million views. It was later re-uploaded.
