Temple Management East Africa signs Blinky Bill
Multi-talented Kenyan singer, producer and multi-instrumentalist, Blinky Bill becomes the first signee of Temple Management – East Africa! This says a lot for Temple’s vision and the next phase of Blinky’s career that has been on an upward trajectory since going solo in 2016.
At the big unveiling and signing, Blinky said, “I have been working for a long time on my own music and it’s really good to have [Temple Management], a team that believes in me and the work that I do,” adding, “I am working on my album right now and it’s going to be lit and it’s really nice to be working with a team that will ensure that the album goes all the way to the top.” Blinky is on the verge of completing production of his debut album.
Having grown a strong brand while still under Kenya’s beloved group – Just A Band, Blinky released his debut EP: “We Cut Keys While You Wait” to massive successful and positive reviews. Blinky got signed to Temple Management, making him East Africa’s first artiste to join the Temple family. He was unveiled at the headquarters of the Temple Management – East Africa, at their Nairobi offices. He joins a number of top African artistes signed to Temple Management. They include Iyanya, DJ Jimmy Jatt and the Mavins Record label family.
From having a hand in producing all of JAB music including the smash hit “Ha-He”, Blinky has since evolved to become a renowned music producer and the magic behind some of Nairobi’s biggest bangers like his jam “I’m Feeling It” featuring Mayonde and Muthoni the Drummer Queen, and then “Party Nation” featuring Mayonde, Fena, MDQ, Kagwe Mungai and himself. Blinky’s latest music project “Atie” is a powerful piece of art including a video collaboration with Kenyan futuristic creative director Osborne Macharia.
Blinky is currently in studio working on his first full-length project dubbed, “Everyone’s just winging it and other fly tales” slated for a 2017 release.
