Singer Otile Brown pays his barber as much as Ksh.100,000 weekly to cut his hair.
In an interview with YouTuber, Mungai Eve, Otile’s barber, Fahim, disclosed that he pays the singer weekly visits and first started in 2018.
“Ilikuwa 2018 ndo nimeanza kukutana na Otile the first time. Nilimnyoa na uoga ndo msanii wa kwanza nimemnyoa kichwa. So vile nilimnyoa sikudhani ataniita tena nikakuja kupigiwa simu na meneja wake kurudi kumnyoa,” said Fahim.
Fahim went on to reveal that Otile does not visit the barbershop an opts to have his hair done at his house or on his music video shoots.
“Otile hakuji kwenye shop…huwa namyoa kwake ama kwenye anashoot video. Namyoa baada ya wiki moja, na nywele yake inamea haraka sana,” he continued.
Fahim revealed that there is no specific pay he receives from the singer and sometimes he gets even Ksh100,000 during the weekly sessions.
