Otile Brown is being trolled by a fan online following his online rant over his AFRIMMA nomination.
The RnB star has been nominated for Best East African male artistes alongside Diamond Platnumz, Rayvanny, Harmonize among others.
Otile however asked his fans not to vote for him saying that awards do not determine his career growth.
He also took a swipe at bongo stars pointing out that the AFRIMMA management should only nominate artistes who’ve named themselves after animals.
“Afrima bado wana ni nomineting’i…always count me out y’all….nominate hao wasanii wanajiita wanyama….it’s not my style.” He said
His sentiments angered a Tanzanian fan who went ahead to ask him to take his fellow men head on.
According to the fan, Otile is just shying away from the award ceremony because of the ‘big names’ nominate in the same category as him.
“You’re jus a f***ed hater. Mwanaume hana maneno mengi, mwanaume hapigi vijembe Insta story. Ingia kazi pambana na wanaume wenzako huku kwenye music wacha umama.” Wrote the fan
In a rejoinder, Otile fired back at the fan saying it is not the first time he has been nominated for any award.
“Ushawai niona ninapost kuhusu tuzo hata siku moja? Au unadhani ndio mara ya kwanza kunominatiwa. Sasa nani anaomba huruma wakati natetea wananchi wenzangu? “ Otile said in part
The singer maintains that there is no point of his fans voting for him since the winners are determined way befor voting starts
