Good reviews for Ibo Fire's 'Hungry Days'

Ibo Fire

Talented Rastafarian singjay Ibo Fire is on the verge of a major breakthrough on the reggae music scene with his latest release the hard-hitting conscious song, 'Hungry Days', on the Jamrock rhythm for the 12 to 12 Muzik label.

"Hungry Days is getting a huge response for people, especially those struggling with high food prices; they especially love the line 'tribal war over food'. But this song is not an attack on the wealthy or the politicians, but simply an encouragement to the regular folks like myself. I am advising them to brace themselves for the tribulations and famine that is about to come," Ibo Fire said.

The single has been racking up several spins each week on major radio stations such as IRIE FM, HITZ, and RJR in recent weeks.

"Mi just want to big up DJ Wayne of IRIE FM, who rinse it pon the weekend, and DJ Smurf who played it on Saturday morning. It come in like people ah listen hard for it because whenever it play, mi phone just blow up," he said.

Released in October, Hungry Days was produced by Paul Mullings of 12 to 12 Promotions. The Rastafarian singjay, whose given name is Livian Farquharson, hails from Crofts Hill in Clarendon, but is now living in Kingston.

Given the favourable response to the single, there are plans to shoot a video for the project in January. The Hungry Days radio hit will be the lead single for his debut EP, Gateway, which will be released in the first week of January. "Hungry Days will definitely be my lead single," the 32-year-old said.

Ibo Fire said he spent years honing his skills, but it was only this year that he got the opportunity to release his first track. And he is running with this opportunity.

"Mi just glad that all the years of hard work are finally paying off, big up to Paul Mullings and 12 to 12 Muzik," he said.

Ibo Fire has a number of other singles such as Holding On, Shingling Sound and Overcome.
