SINGJAY Nesbeth is encouraged by the responses he has been receiving from his latest release Ole Gangalee.

Produced by United States-based Kushface Records, the track was released three weeks ago.

"The feedback is overwhelming," he told the Jamaica Observer.

According to Nesbeth, the song delivers a serious message and he feels that is why the track has resonated with listeners.

"It's telling the people not to bow or sell out to the system. These days, we see some people doing all sorts of negative things to gain material things. Some of them will sell their souls for money, it's sickening. As an artiste, I have to encourage the youths to maintain their dignity and morality," he said.

Ole Gangalee comes on the heels of his last release Hot Hot Hot which was produced by Turbomax. This he said did "fairly well".

Nesbeth, whose given name is Greg Nesbeth, is from the tough, inner-city community of Arnett Gardens in St Andrew.

Now in his mid-30s, he got his first studio experience in 1993 when he recorded Reflection of Love.

In 2007, however, he met producer Kemar 'Flava' McGregor and has since released Boardhouse, Drive By and Guns Out.
