Artist Info

Blind Musical Flames

Powered by Audioscrobbler™Blind Musical Flames of Sierra Leone were in existence from 1990 until 1993. They had a huge hit with “High Morale” shortly after the overthrew of former President Joseph Saidu Momoh in 1992.

Mustapha Bai Attila, the now Deputy Minister of Social Welfare Gender & Children’s Affairs, recently addressed the Milton Margai School for the Blind in Freetown. Attila noted that the School for the Blind holds a reputation in & out of Sierra Leone, citing that the nation’s first musical heroes, the Blind Musical Flames are products of the school. They were the quintessential Sierra Leonean sight-impaired super-group.

Minister Attilla was at one time known at King M.B. Attilla. He hails from Freetown, Sierra Leone, West Africa. He is considered among the nation’s best musical artists. His singing & keyboard skills are well known throughout Africa, Europe, Canada, the Caribbean, & the US. He has produced many hit songs. He has performed in Mali, Gambia, Guinea, the West Coast of Africa, the Caribbean & the US.

Attilla lost his vision early in life. However, his God-given musical talents were nurtured while at the Milton Margai School. Attilla credits the school’s headmaster, Mr. Samuel Campbell, for his indefatigable commitment to make him an outstanding musician. In 1979, as a leading member of the school’s band, Attilla was instrumental in the illustrious group winning an international competition organized by the British Broadcasting Cooperation (BBC).

Blind Musical Flames play reggae-flavored African dance music.
