According to Dreamland Music Entertainment company, Otile Brown walked away from a contract which was still active and one which had been signed mutually. The label has then taken the action against the musician and as a result they have decided to bar the singer from using the songs in any public performance or business engagement.
This denies Otile Brown the revenues that would have come from shows and any endorsements at-least when he will be able to produce new music on his own.
The songs are Shujaa Wako, Imaginary Love, Dejavu, Everything, Basi, Pakate, Alivyonipenda, Niseme Nawe & Aiyolela
Here is the information that the label communicated to the public via their Facebook page:
