YAKSTA

Finding solace in song-writing...

from his early childhood, he spent his formative years working on music projects and focused on reggae and dancehall culture as opposed to his studies. After several stints in hospitality at popular Jamaican beach resorts and running his own business selling clothes as a way to make ends meet, Yaksta soon decided a full-time life in music is the only way for him. “I am music incarnate and I’ve given up on avoiding my destiny”, he vows enthusiastically.

Just a short few months into his career as a musician, and Yaksta is quickly becoming a household name across Jamaica, owed large in part to his viral music video for his single “Home“ which racked up over 1 Million views on Facebook in less than 6 months. Home, which depicts the issues facing poor people in Jamaica today and contrasts the lives of the Jamaican elite against the less fortunate, instantly struck a chord with those from lower income areas who are still proud of their communities. With demand for Yaksta building quickly at local reggae “dances”, he’s wasted no time in making appearances at core functions across the country. Not skipping a beat on recording, Yaksta is back with a second single, “Boogie Woogie” – a throwback reggae jam that mixes the sound of 60’s Jamaican rocksteady and ska crossed with modern roots and pop. With key early support from core DJs and radio stations spanning Jamaica to the US and UK, Yaksta’s star is certainly on the rise as he continues to develop his core fan base.
