SHANEIKA Hibbert is hoping to shake up the music industry with her own brand of feel-good music.

She recently released her debut single Love It When You Like It on the Cottage 9 imprint.

“Right now, I am just so excited at the response I am getting from the public, and the possibilities for the song when it gets picked up by the major urban stations,” she said.

“I want to touch and motivate people, and truly embrace my talent and see what I can offer the world. I am hoping that Love It When You Like It” will blow up all globally. I am truly grateful for my talent and would like to inspire women to take good care of our men; a good man is hard to find,” she continued.

She is currently working on a collaboration which fuses her with Fambo and the Robbie Rivera's (under his KB City label), reggae and house music.

Hibbert grew up in Bluefields, Westmoreland, where she attended Godfrey Stewart High in Savanna-la-Mar.

She worked as a cabaret singer and hosted karaoke events and, after that, landed several invites to sing at weddings. It was during one of her gigs that she met music producer Caroline St George, who fell in love with her incredible talent.

“Caroline showed great interest in me, and for this, I will be forever grateful. She believed in me at a time when I had no idea how far I would progress in music. She saw something great in me,” she said.

Shaneika said she is intent on making it in the music industry.

“I am just keeping things positive right now. I am so excited about where my career is heading,” she added.
