A rising star in the Afrobeats scene, Lagos native YKB has released his new single, ‘Bo Card (things I need’. Produced by Funwon and Spax, the smooth instrumental complements the artist perfectly as he effortlessly floats over the saxophone-tinged beat.

YKB’s vocal performance is impeccable, as he pines for his love interest in the song. His lyricism sets the scene of the protagonist finding his counterpart so irresistible that he is willing to go broke for her. YKB does not put a foot wrong throughout and he is certainly making a case as a trailblazer in the world of Afropop.

Speaking on the track, YKB states:

“‘Bo Card’ means spending money. I think a lot of people will recognise that feeling of trying to convince a lady that you’re compatible. Basically letting her know, if she gives me a chance she won’t regret it.”

The new track could well be on it’s way to being a summer anthem, as YKB continues to grow as an artist. With an EP expected this month, the Nigerian star has a real chance of making a huge noise within his genre this year.
