Nigerian Afropop star YKB has dropped his highly anticipated EP titled ‘Yusful Music’, a six-track project that includes his hit single ‘San Siro’. With his unique sound and incredible talent, YKB is rapidly gaining recognition as one of the talents charting a new sonic course for Afrobeats.
Growing up in Ketu, Lagos, YKB developed a passion for music and crafting melodies from a young age. Fusing Afrobeats, R&B, trap, and hip-hop, he has steadily built a solid fan base as an independent artist, culminating in the release of his debut album ‘Before I Blow’ in 2021.
The EP ‘Yusful Music’ showcases YKB’s versatility and musical prowess, delivering a fresh and engaging listening experience. YKB’s latest single ‘Bo card (things I need)’, available to stream on Apple Music in Spatial Audio now, features a saxophone-flecked melody that perfectly complements his smooth vocals as he expresses the magnitude of love he has for his lady.
YKB has also been announced as the latest Apple Music Africa Rising artist, a recognition that he cherishes deeply. He shares that his goal is to communicate his feelings through his music and hopes that his fans can relate to and learn from his stories. As an African boy making music, he is grateful for the opportunity to share his art with a wider audience through the Africa Rising program.
The acronym ‘Yusful’ stands for Yusuf Kan Bai, which is Yoruba for “one Yusuf like that”. Through his music, YKB aims to convey his unique perspective on life, love, and everything in between. With his undeniable talent and growing fan base, he is well on his way to achieving his goals and cementing his status as one of the most promising Afropop artists in the industry.
