Last week Friday, 30 November 2018, saw the release of a brand new single by RYKI, entitled I LIKE IT HERE.
RYKI started writing the single in 2015, and finished it in 2018. Her focus for the single was to portray a message of freedom. With always hearing people complaining about our country and being disappointed and discourage. RYKI, inspired by all the beautiful things South Africa has to offer, wants to remind everyone to change their perspectives and be grateful for all the blessings we do have.
“The song’s aim is to spark hope and open our eyes so we can all be thankful for. To stop comparing and actually enjoy who we are.”
I LIKE IT HERE offers a variety of pop, hip-hop and tribal elements with a fun, summer, African feel to it. While RYKI wrote the lyrics and melodies, the track, produced by JT Moatshe, arranged and recorded by Jemaine Roberts, and Kirsten Van Den Berg guided the complete chorus and drop sections.
While RYKIis still discovering her sound and learning to create independently whilst testing different things out and creating and establishing her brand, she’s excited about the release of a new single.
“I’m hoping everyone enjoys the track and that everyone who stays in South Africa would be filled with joy and love for our country. This song is for those who are proud of living in SA and plan to stay.”
