 As he was waiting for M Tuva, he came across Jalang’o and the two talked in length. It is after this that Jalas advised him to venture into singing instead of raping. After a long talk, Brown left Jalas a CD to listen to and give him a call after.

Few days later, Brown received a call from Jalang’o who encouraged him to chase his dream. He also advised him to choose between Wyre and Dr. Eddie as a producer. Due to the Wyre’s busy schedule, Otile chose Dr. Eddie of Dreamland Music Entertainment and signed under his label.
