About YQ


His history is like that of the ''most known unknown''.

Born 26 years ago as Yakubu Jubril from Kogi state. YQ discovered his crooning abilities By the year 1998, he had gotten really deep into music and decided to do it commercially rather than a hobby. While hanging-out with a promoter who to him was like a Guardian,he came in contact with likes of Father U-turn,Daddy Showkey and Felix Duke for further encouragement. He hooked up with his former partner Krest-up and both formed the group Qkrest. In 2005,they released a musical video for there hit song ''Fire Dance'',which was really hot in Clubs. Alongside his partner,they performed at such big concerts as the play safe Rave by Tequila Events in 2003,in the same year they opened a Show for Magic systems at coca cola show, and in 2007 just before the split,they performed at the Tetnisik show organized by Orangootan Ent.

With the likes of Mode9, Ashionye, Sasha etcetera, YQ is an extremely talented artist who does RnB with a blend of dancehall/reggae,he says music is in his blood. "its my lifestyle...its like something sings inside of me, its like food to my soul, I'm really emotional and I just wanted a way to express my inner feelings, that's why i'm here." He grew in Lagos with 7 siblings; he was the 2nd born. He struggled through primary and secondary education and after being admitted into Lagos state polytechnic,he dropped out due to inadequate funding. He is presently an OND holder of Kogi State Polytechnic. It may look all rosy now but the journey for YQ wasn't really smooth, encountered oppositions from some family members and actually lost closeness with some relatives for his decision to do music. His parents are now supportive though.

As of today, he is with 2Koncept Ent, his smash single ''efimile'' ft dagrin, paved the way for him. YQ says "I believe good music would sell itself. I learn from tight Artistes and wack ones too cos they help realize that while you're aiming to drop tight stuff,trash also sell."
