Sev­en­teen Fiji Broad­cast­ing Cor­po­ra­tion (FBC) staff cre­ated the ‘Go Fiji Go’ song and video in just 24 hours. The ‘Go Fiji Go’ pro­duc­tion team were re­warded a lunch treat at Hol­i­day Inn in Suva yes­ter­day. Af­ter the video was launched, it be­came one of Fiji’s most pop­u­lar song in­spir­ing the Fiji Rugby 7s team.

FBC chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer, Riyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, said the song was the hard work of the FBC staff. “The team worked 24 hours to get the lyrics, video and pro­duc­tion or­gan­ised for the Rio Olympics,” Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said. “I thank my team for their hard work, tal­ent and sup­port in putting ev­ery­thing to­gether which ev­ery Fi­jian en­joys to lis­ten to.”

FBC Gold FM pro­grammes di­rec­tor, Kara Koroi said she was more than happy to be a part of the pro­duc­tion team.

“I have al­ways been a rugby fol­lower and would do any­thing to show my sup­port for Fiji,” Ms Koroi said. FBC TV senior cam­era and edi­tor, Sa­muela So­qoy­awa said af­ter he heard the lyrics, the song in­spired him to par­tic­i­pate in mak­ing the video. “It was truly over­whelm­ing to see how Fi­jians showed their sup­port to­wards the mak­ing of the video,” Mr So­qoy­awa said.
