Blinky Bill releases a thanksgiving song ‘Mungu Halali’ featuring female vocalists

Blinky Bill is soaring with his latest Thanksgiving release, “Mungu Halali”.

Kenyan singer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Blinky Bill has released a new single “Mungu Halali”, off his highly rated self-produced 2018 international debut album ‘Everyone is Winging it and Other Fly Tales’.

The gospel-themed song “Mungu Halali” is the perfect soul lifter and a declaration of gratitude. The song features some of Kenya’s finest vocalists, Sage, Sarah Mitaru, Wambura Mitaru, and Lisa Oduor Noah.

According to a statement released by Anyiko PR ahead of the track release, Blinky said, “A lot of things in my life inspired “Mungu Halali”. Like the times when you feel you are not really going to make it and then somehow it happen that you pull through. It’s a song of thanksgiving. I have just seen the hand of the good Lord in my life even when I thought that I didn’t deserve that shot.” He added that the song was partly inspired by his mother.

With scenes switching between the streets to Blinky’s normal chill zone, always surrounded by vinyl records; the music video captures the heart and soul of Nairobi’s diversity from religion, family, hustle to legend and more. Leonard Mambo Mbotela, the legendary Kenyan veteran media guru, of the ‘Je huu ni ungwana?’ popular old school show opens the video, with Mbithi and Dan Muli of Just A Band, Blinky’s former electronic and funk band, closing off in a nostalgic twist. The video also features Blinky’s parents and an artsy lot of Nairobians like Patricia Kihoro, Lyra Aoko, and Wanja Wohoro.

On producing “Mungu Halali”, Blinky described his soulful collaborators as “Some of the best singers in Kenya,” adding, “I wanted to get the contrast between the song’s up-tempo, my voice and their voices, and they came through.”

Having released his first international album and getting signed to French label, The Garden, 2018 was trailblazing for Blinky. His successful streak also saw him tour the USA and a couple of European culture spots like London, France, and Germany, among others.
