Kenyan R&B singer Jacob Otieno Obunga, popularly known as Otile Brown and famed for tracks such as; Baby Love, Hi, Crush and Chaguo La Moyo, has released a new jam and it’s getting a lot of love from his fans.
The song titled The Way You Are has been topping local charts since it was released a few days ago and to be honest, we are also feeling it. Like, really!
Basically, this jam is meant to inspire confidence in ladies and to get them to appreciate themselves as they are since God created them in his own image.
Notably, many ladies have self esteem issues because of their skin tones, body shapes, backgrounds and whatnot and Otile says that they should not undergo procedures or bleach so as to be loved and/or accepted.
He goes on to say that someone who doesn’t appreciate you the way you are will not change his or her mind because you bleached your skin or got some implants.
Although some people are saying that this is a direct jab at his ex girlfriend Vera Sidika, I love the fact that Otile took it upon himself to boost ladies’ self esteem and let them know that they are more than perfect.
As expected, the Alivyonipenda hitmaker brought his A-game on this jam. The way he sings, you can tell that what he is saying comes from his heart.
The beat on and instrumentation on this track are very catchy and perhaps it has a lot to do with the fact that it has a hint of Taraab. The producer, Ihaji, did an impeccable job.
I also loved the video. One of the things that I loved was the diversity of the models. There was a lady with vitiligo, an albino, dark as well as light skinned ladies and it really drove the point home.
Watch The Way You Are below and tell us what you think.
