Nadia Mukami ft Otille – Kolo
African popstar Nadia Mukami released her first collaboration song with Otille Brown titled ‘Kolo’ three months ago.
Sadly, many fans complained that the two mega artists did not produce a song that is per their capabilities. Several netizens followed and trolled Otille Brown on the same.
Responding to the matter, Otiile revealed that Nadia Mukami did not allow him to write his own lyrics as ‘she wanted a hit song, not a good song.’
Otille Brown said he did not love the song but recorded his verse out of the respect of his producer, Vicky Pon Dis.
“Ya’ll be trolling me ever since the song came out. It’s messing up my peace,” Wrote Otille Brown.
