Kemaul M. Martin, professionally known as Yaksta, is a popular reggae/dancehall artist from St. Mary, Jamaica.

He became an inspiration when his hit singles “Humans and Ambition”, singled him out as one of the new breed of artists that emerged with added strength during the pandemic lockdown.

Yaksta has since followed up with a string of releases, including “Assets (Fowl Coop)”, “That time Again”, “Fete Life”, “Free my People” and many more songs that have rapidly grown his global fan base.

He first experienced going viral in 2017 with “Home”, which quickly gained over 1M video views at a time when he had little industry experience.

Followed by “Boogie Woogie”, a big song for live performances and a firm favorite in his catalog, along with “St mary”, another crowd favorite. The Dancehall fan base, as well as his wider audience, have created a real buzz around the latest releases on several platforms.
