Afar Music group recording artiste Oriel has many reasons to be happy as his Give Me A Reason single, featuring Richie Stephens, continues to grow in popularity.

The thought-provoking single that was produced and released by Afar Music Group is currently enjoying rotation in a number of countries including Dominica, Spain, Italy, and Japan.

"The airplay this song is getting all over the world is overwhelming. I am very happy and grateful for this support. I knew the song would do well given the fact that it is a good song, but I had no idea it would get so much attention internationally in such a short time," Oriel said.

Give Me A Reason, is also a staple on local radio stations such as Irie fm and Hitz 92 fm.

"It's nice to know that the DJs in Jamaica are giving the song their support. It's also doing well in the dances, too," said Oriel.

The artiste is also getting a lot of exposure via newspapers, magazines, and blogs.

"Since the release of Give Me A Reason, I have been doing a lot of promotional work. I've done a lot of interviews on radio, TV, and also with the press. The international media have given me a lot of attention because of the strong revolutionary message of the song," he says.

Oriel is currently promoting another single called Sticks & Stones.

"We released this track around the same time we released Give Me A Reason, but we were just pushing it underground. Based on the response it has been getting, we have decided to focus our attention on this song now. Give Me A Reason is already out there, so the timing is right," he said.
