Skinflint band is a three piece rock band from Botswana. Founded in 2005 by guitarist and vocalist Giuseppe Sbrana, the band includes Kebonye Nkoloso (bass) and Alessandra Sbrana (drums). Their influences include Iron Maiden & Black Sabbath. The band is currently at work recording the full length follow up to 2010's Iklwa. Skinflint has in the past represented Botswana in international concerts especially in South Africa and Europe. Their latest album, Gauna was recorded in France and the band is preparing to tour Europe in year 2013.
Skinflint has over the years proved to be one of the best rock bands in Southern Africa. Their lyrical mastery and consciousness are evident in most of the songs produced in their past albums such as Inside Scar, Massive Destruction, Iklwa, and lately with their fourth album, Gauna.
CNN crew flew in Botswana in May 2012 and recorded Skinflint live performances and as soon as they were done videos were already playing on the CNN channel. The video attracted about 15 million hits from the CNN website.
Skinflint has sold more than 100,000 copies of their Album in Botswana and South Africa.
