YKB, short for Yusuf Kan Bai, which means “one Yusuf like that” in Yoruba, was born and raised in Ketu, Lagos, where he developed an early love of music and the ability to compose melodies. As an independent musician who fuses Afrobeats, R&B, trap, and hip-hop, YKB has slowly amassed the most devoted fan following, which culminated in the publication of his 7-track debut album, “Before I Blow” (2021).

Another enticingly sweet song from the artist, “Bo card (things I need),” is currently streaming on Apple Music in Spatial Audio. It sees the singer proclaiming the depth of his love for his girlfriend while being supported by a saxophone-flecked tune. The Yusful Music EP is out on all platforms and can be listened to on Apple Music.
