Ali Jacko – ‘Working Man’, ‘I Found LOVE’ and ‘Only Thing I See’

After meeting Muhummad Ali on a plane, Ali Jacko, real name Abdul Ali, went back to his home in the East End of London and poured his passions into kickboxing, holding a massively successful 12 year career including 44 wins without a loss, as well as maintaining JKO Productions outside the ring. He’s always been one to excel at whatever he puts his mind to, so it should come as no surprise that he’s put as much energy into his next career move, as a recording artist.



Jacko has taken his passion as a fighter and applied it to his music, with plans to release a total of 11 songs and videos this year. We’ve already covered the release of his track, ‘I Found Love’, back in February. Now he’s returned with his signature gritty vocal style for two more: ‘Working Man’, and ‘Only Thing I See’.

‘Working Man’ details the day to day doings of a working man, with a hook-laden tune providing a sing-along for the middle classes, combined with a sturdy structure and infectious groove. According to Jacko, the work week may be tough, but it’s all worth it in the end when you’re providing a home and life for the woman of your dreams:

‘Only Thing I See’ is a pop-rock jam, a perfect summertime smash with a larger-than-life chorus and a video shot in London’s famous Docklands. It’s rocking and sultry, with Jacko’s vocals conveying passion and love for his wife – the only thing he sees – with an almost country vibe to the track.

You can find Ali Jacko online on his official website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
