EARLY LIFE

Yung Fly’s interest in music grew from childhood when his dad bought him a whole lot of records including that of Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre , Ludacris , Bow Wow, Busta Rhymes and more when returning from work. He also watched his mum sing in the choir. He believes unconsciously his parents were teaching him music or letting it grow in him.

Yung Fly always knew he would be making beats so he wasted no time when he got his first PC in 2011 , experimenting here and there as he had nobody to teach him. Ironically his parents especially his dad didn’t like the idea because they thought he was making noise and wasting electricity. Within a year after getting his PC,  he had already started making beats.

MUSIC CAREER

  • Yung Fly’s first placement was in 2013 when he produced M.anifest’s “someway bi”.

Well,  i was asked to send a couple of beats to M.anifest by Selasie , i sent one, he heard it and wanted to meet up with me, so we met at madina verbs during his 2012 “Rapper Of The Year” appreciation party. He asked to hear more so i sent another and that was the beat for someway bi 

Manifest’s “someway bi” ended up winning third place in the  R&B/ Hiphop category of The International Songwriting Competition (ISC) 2014. It also got numerous nominations in Ghana and beyond.
