‘I didn’t like doing it but I had to survive’ Otile Brown on selling chang’aa

Singer Otile Brown may put a brave face in public, but behind the scenes he is hurting for the fact that his mother is not alive to witness his success.

Otile’s mum passed away when he was only 12, forcing him to sell Changaa  to earn a living. It is made by fermentation and distillation from grains like millet, maize and sorghum, and is very potent.

In an interview with Daily Nation sometime back, the singer confessed how losing his mum affected his life. He said

“Appreciate and love your mama…feeling kinda emotional tonight. Wish she could be here so I can spoil her, My mom died when I was about to turn 13. I don’t like talking about it but I don’t shy away from speaking about it because I know it could motivate someone. Sometimes when I would get caught, the officers would frog march me past the school compound where other children would see me. It was embarrassing didn’t like doing it but I had to survive,”
