KIBIKI believes single mothers are the backbone of most Jamaican communities and ought to be applauded for the work they do in shaping future generations.

“Ah just the livity mi see a gwaan inna the community. I am a dedicated father but when mi look around, mi realise is mostly the mothers are the glue ah keep society together,” said Kibaki.

He has set his thoughts to music on the single Mama, released last September on the Sweet Music label.

“The feedback's incredible so far. Everybody is loving the video for the Mama. People ah respond to it, and when it drop on the radio and in the streets inna the dance, people ah go crazy over it,” he said.

In the meantime, his other single, the bouncy Smooth and Easy, is also doing the rounds.

“Right now, the whole ah Grants Pen ah create a movement behind the ting. The video is doing well, the radio is up, and the streets ah say Kibaki,” he said.

He believes his career is finally taking off due to a recording and booking deal inked with US-based label Sweet Music.

Kibaki recorded his first song in 1999. In 2002, he gave up club foot-ball for music. He scored minor hits with Jah Jah Never Fail I Yet and Jah Jah Children Beware.
