The ladies want him and the gents want to be like him...
If we are being honest with ourselves, most Kenyan men don't take fashion seriously.
For most guys, a pair of jeans, t-shirt and sneakers is just about how far they will go to dress up. Really not sure why most African men perceive the art of dressing up as 'gay'. It's so backward. However, not all guys are like that. Some Kenyan men especially those in the arts - musicians and artistes know that looking good is part of building their personal brand.
Otile Brown is one up and coming artiste whose dress up game is a straight 10/10. Show me a photo of Otile not looking stylish and I will show you a long sleeved bra.
Brown's journey to the top was not easy. The mellow voiced singer, known for his bongo-like love songs was born in Mombasa and struggled to make ends meet after losing his mother at the age of 14. He did not let that set back stop him from making it and hustled by selling sandals after moving to Nairobi where he then pursued a career in music.
Fast forward to this day, Brown is one of the top Kenyan artistes now with singles such as "Kistaarabu" and collabos with the cream of the crop when it comes to the Kenyan music scene, such as Sanaipei Tande, Timmy T Dat and King Kaka.
Brown, who btw is a Luo (donge?) is a complete package. Looks, style & talent. Here are times he looked like a snack.
1. When he pulled off this fuchsia look.
2. Can he slide into my dms like this please...
3. When he rocked this denims and Yeezys combo.
4. Irresistible much?
5. When he rocked an all black suit look.
6. When he was colorful in floral slip on shoes paired with an edgy ensemble.
7. When he looked effortlessly cute in jeans and a cardigan look, paired with chelsea boots.
8. When he looked like a bag of money!
9. When he looked lush in pink...there's something about a man in pink.
10. When he looked like my next baby daddy...
