Video: Blinky Bill @ Kuweni Serious!
Just A Band’s second album – 82 – features a song called “Usinibore”, written by Blinky Bill; a member of the band. “It’s about feeling helpless about the way things are, and wanting to do something in your capacity to change stuff. [Africans] don’t have the same opportunities as other people.”, he says.
“There’s also the political angle. I think we’re all very tired of seeing politicians who’ve been there from the 60s still clinging to power and not doing anything to better our lives. That’s something that affects all of us. If the country starts to burn like it did in 2007, we all go down with it.” He sat down with us to talk about his views on “whiny” Kenyans, and how desperately we need a new breed of politicians in this country.
