Liberia’s music landscape is witnessing a dynamic shift as a new breed of artists takes the center stage, signaling an unstoppable wave of creativity.
Among these emerging talents is Steve Mathias Tamba Yalipa, popularly known as YoB. He stands as a cornerstone of this fresh wave, carving a distinct niche and steadily growing his dedicated fanbase.
The year 2023 was nothing short of monumental for this rising star. Transitioning from indoor performances to gracing outdoor stages alongside industry heavyweights.
As an independent Afrobeat artist and songwriter, YoB has collaborated with top-tier Liberian artists, both locally and internationally. His single, “Feelings,” made a resounding impact on streaming platforms, drawing attention to his unique musical style and craftsmanship.
In a candid conversation, YoB expressed the challenges he faces as an independent artist due to the limited promotional opportunities available. Reflecting on a common misconception, he emphasized that music quality alone isn’t enough—effective promotion is paramount for success. Consequently, he’s actively seeking a dedicated manager or team committed to elevating his music for mutual success.
Anticipation is high for YoB in 2024, as he gears up to launch the year with a soul-stirring track titled “People,” featuring two sensational artists from Liberia and America.
