Late last week, Otile landed in the United States of America after his 23-hour flight.

The two-month tour will see Otile entertain East Africans in these states.

Otile, real name Jacob Obunga, is among the fast-rising and most popular musicians in Kenya.

His brand has since increased tenfold and he recently pocketed a Sh15 million endorsement deal from Tecno to perform the role of brand ambassador.

Not even several strikes by YouTube in which some of Otile’s songs were removed from the social media platform have slowed down his career.
