This weekend, Jacob Obunga aka Otile Brown, remembered his late mother in a post he made on his Instagram page.

The 'Dusuma' singer noted that he was saddened he hadn't been able to tell his mother he loved her before she passed on.

He also said that he wouldn't be the man he was today without her influence in her life. His caption is below;

"Marehem mama...Thank you for making me the man that I am today. Inanikwaza sikuwai kukuambia nakupenda kabla kuaga dunia." (Late mom ... Thank you for making me the man that I am today. It hurts me I never told you I loved you before you passed away)

Speaking during an interview with Jalang'o a few years ago, the singer admitted that after his parents separated, his father went to live in Kisumu, while he remained in Mombasa with his mother.

You’ve never talked about your parents anywhere why? You talk about your grandma most of the time?” asked Jalang’o.

Otile Brown responded; “They passed away. My dada hatukuwai hata kukutana coz they broke up with my mum. I’m the last born by the way. So when they broke up with my mum, yeye alienda akabase Kisumu. Me and my mum remained in Mombasa. He went and passed on lakini sikupata nafasi hata ya kumzika. My mum passed away in 2006 so I just grew up with my uncles and my granny and my step mum.”
