Yusuf Kan Bai is the fast-rising Afrobeats sensation looking to fill the shoes of veteran vocal wizard, Wande Coal. The soulful singer had a breezy 2020 despite the pandemic-induced lockdown with his double feature on Laycon’s EP, Who is Laycon? and his two-track EP, Hear Me Out. He immediately follows up the buzz garnered from his S3nami assisted Oshofree with the uptempo single, Dey Your Dey.
YKB sings playfully about shedding off bad energy and remaining in his own private space while doing all the things that he desires. Privacy has become a blessing in a time in history when social media has broken down all barriers and exposed parts of human life that would rather have been concealed from public eyes. This has also metamorphosed into some sort of major issue for celebrities who spend day and night addressing controversies that often spin off from what appear to be agenda against them or other times, mere misunderstanding.
Zlatan, known for his confrontational lyrics, raps “why people like to diss? Why people like to beef? Why my brother Dey pray make I fall?” as he addresses the notion that most times, it’s the people that you love and care about who plot your downfall. The Gizzle produced single is an affirmation of YKB’s talent and his determination to conquer the Afrobeats space. He also often mentions Wande Coal as his biggest inspiration sand role model.
