This past week, Otile Brown went all the way up to visit his long-distance girlfriend Nabayet. The “Dusuma” singer all the way to Ethiopia to see the woman who has had a big place in his heart for more than two years.
The last time they were spotted together was back in December 2019 months before break up rumours emerged online. Nabbi had been stuck in Australia for months due to the COVID-19 pandemic that interfered with international travel.
The beautiful and light-skinned Ethiopian queen jetted to her home-country recently, and after Otile finished shooting his music video in Tanzania, he jetted straight to Ethiopia to see her.
The couple shared a video hanging out together with Nabbi’s caption reading, “I am holding your boy hostage in Addis Ababa, and he ain’t coming back,”
In the video, the pretty Ethiopian lady is seen planting soft kisses on Otile Brown’s forehead, showing her fans and followers how she missed him when she was away. They also went to a high-end restaurant where they were seen sampling Ethiopian cuisine.
Thing is while people might see his gesture as being very romantic, I don’t see it the same way. I think that the couple is trying to keep alive a relationship that isn’t meant to be.
It is well-known that long-distance relationships are the toughest things to navigate and while the couple might be trying to keep the spark burning, I think it might be on its last legs.
The old school phrase, “Out of sight, out of mind” comes to mind for me. The two are still clutching at straws to keep what should have been a fling into a long-term relationship.
And while I might sound jaded, my question to you the audience is this? “What is the point of a relationship where you see your significant other for less than a whole month in a year?”
Is that really the type of relationship that the romantics among us dream about? I don’t think so. Anyone who wants to have a long-term relationship with someone else desires to see them a lot. The desire levels between the two leaves a lot to be desired.
In conclusion, I think what Otile and Nabayet have is a short-term arrangement(one they might know on a subconscious level). One that offers the two clout and publicity-one that isn’t meant to go the whole distance but that is working for them right now.
But I could be wrong.
