Blinky Bill's New Album Shows That There Are No Limits to His Creativity

The prolific Kenyan beatmaker Bill Sellanga is back with his eagerly-awaited debut solo album, Everyone's Just Winging It & Other Fly Tales.

Blinky Bill is not new to the game. As one of the founding members of Kenya's most famous alternative music collective, Just a Band, he already has an extensive body of work under his belt.

In their heyday, Just a Band revolutionized the Kenyan music scene with their genre-bending style and uniquely-produced visual treatments. Their avant-garde approach to music and art led to global recognition, the production of Kenya's first viral video and a direct influence on the next wave of Nairobi's creative daredevils. Now on hiatus, the band members have set out on their own solo endeavors. For Blinky Bill—DJ, rapper and producer extraordinaire—a solo album has been a long time coming.

On Everyone's Just Winging It & Other Fly Tales, Blinky reinvigorates his passion for experimental beat-making. He weaves African rhythms together with electronic cuts, hip-hop and funk in order to attain a hard-hitting, inventive and sublime body of work.
