Kemaul M. Martin, professionally known as Yaksta, is a successful reggae and dancehall artist hailing from St Mary, Jamaica. He became a global phenomenon with his hit singles 'St Mary', 'Humans', and 'Ambition'. His latest releases 'Assets (Fowl Coop)' and ‘That Time Again’ have been rapidly gaining traction across the globe as his songs continue to please, encourage and empower youths to be happy, productive and in control of their lives. Yaksta is represented by WussMusikk (USA) and Runabeat Music (UK). He first debuted on the music scene in February 2016 and within months he was firmly established in the music industry with popular singles such as ‘Above the Ground Floor’, ‘Jah Jah Never Sleeps’, ‘For Sale’ and his EP, ‘Stoic Torture’, produced by Sasaine Music Records. The following year he went viral with his single ‘Home’, which quickly gained over 1 million video views. With this success he partnered with Dana Shaygan and Steve Urchin to co-produce another viral single, ‘Boogie Woogie’, a firm favorite in his catalog of music. Of late Yaksta is seeking to expand in all markets with collaborations that challenge his creative versatility. As a child, Yaskta was continually led back to music projects as opposed to studies and brief job stints (including running his own business selling clothes) until finally deciding that a full-time music career was the only way for him to go. He proudly states “I am music incarnate and I’ve given up on avoiding my destiny.”
