They're Just A Band That's Made It Big

Written By: MIM!—Just A Band's video "Ha-He" has been credited as Kenya's first viral video. Here's the catch: it has only been available for a little over a month, and during this time the video has made it big, no really big, with its spoof of of blaxploitation films, featuring the hilarious protagonist Makmende.

We ♥ Just A Band's particular brand of supernerdycool electro synth (Afri) pop. Look out for more of Just A Band in an upcoming issue of MIMI, and for now, enjoy their video.

Thank you, Mimi. We're always asked to label our music, so we're using your description from now.

The Band.
