What's The Real Story Behind JIREH LIM's Song "Buko"?


Jireh Lim's single "Buko," whose video has now reached 1.4 million views on YouTube, is now back on the MYX Daily Top Ten today at No. 10, after falling off the daily countdown last week.

This young singer shared to MYXPH.COM the real story behind his famous song.

"Buko," according to him is "short for 'Buhay Ko,' it's about the love story of my grandparents. Na-inspire lang ako gumawa ng kanta about long-lasting love and till-death-do-us-part theme na song. Kasi yung lolo ko sobrang sweet niya sa lola ko. Matanda na sila pero kapag matutulog na sila hinehele niya yung lola ko, kinakamot niya yung ulo. Nung nakita ko yun, pinicture-an ko and then nung nakita ko ulit yung picture, na-inspire ako na sumulat ng ganung song," he shares.

Jireh adds that he wants the people to relate to his song. "Simula pagkabata hanggang sa pagtanda nila, may pag-asa pa rin na magkaroon ng true love."

He said that he gave the title "Buko" because he wants it to be a new term of endearment para sa mga nagmamahalan. "Hindi lang baby, honey, sweetheart. Yung bago naman, buko," he said.

Isa ka rin ba sa mga naiinspire sa kantang "Buko"? Leave a comment below!

    This song is phenomenal. An unknown individual has loaded Jireh's song on Youtube in the late of 2011 and it has already accumulated 9Million+ views. How cool is that? I appreciate the impact this promising songwriter gives especially the many young people to love music and develop their skills young as they are.
