Rising star, Stephen Obinyan professionally known as Sir Blinkz has revealed a plan to break into the Nigerian music space by churning out good music that would woo fans.
He said with God’s grace, the effort he put into his music will yield a resounding result.
Sir Blinkz was unapologetic in his ambition as he stated that he wants to be famous and known for producing good music. “I know my sound will differently attract fans to my content.”
The artist, who is based abroad, described his sound as Afrobeat and Afropop. He said he can also be versatile depending on the vibe that comes in.
“Music is one thing everybody can easily vibe and connect to even without understanding the lyrics or language, music is spiritual and it is magical. So to me, music is life, because life would be boring without music,” he said.
Sir Blinkz, who recently released his second official single ‘Feeling Alright’ produced by Duktor Sett, said the song was inspired by God.

Narrating his musical journey, the talented singer said, “I have always loved music with an undying passion right from childhood and I have been doing music for years but not officially because I was off and on. But I officially started music in 2014 when I dropped my first single titled ‘Calabash’ and then later dropped two singles titled ‘Loving you every day’ and ‘Gud bad guy’ between 2015 to 2018 and then took a little break. But, I am officially back again with this my new song.”
He said growing up, music superstars Usher Raymond and Akon are two international artists that influenced his sound while in Nigeria, living legends 2face, Faze, Burna boy and Kizz Daniel inspired him.
The singer told his fans to expect more singles and good music from him.
