Just a Band        

Just a Band, the artists behind Kenya’s first viral video, burst out of obscurity with their exuberant fusion of African funk and electronica.

After being snubbed by media outlets all across Nairobi, Just a Band, three self-described computer and animation nerds, became an overnight sensation when their video featuring “Makmende” -- their superhero parody of ‘70s African American culture -- took off on YouTube.

The three visual artists bonded over casual jams and a love of global pop music at Kenyatta University. Enjoying mounting success over three albums, they drafted other musicians. The band today is made of Bill Sellanga, Daniel Muli, Mbithi Masya, Jim Chuchu, James Ireri, Joe Were and Richard Wandati. Their fourth release Sorry for the Delay further stretches traditional boundaries and continues Just a Band’s transformation into global superstars.
