Elton Mulenga (born November 29, 1994) better known by his stage name Yo Maps, is a Zambian singer, song writer and music producer.
Early life and career
Mulenga was born on November 29, 1994 in Kasama. Mulenga’s interest in music is said to have started in 2008 while he was a student at Chibombo High School. When he was 18, he and his family moved to Kabwe; there, he recorded his first single ‘Njikata Kuboko’ in 2016. In 2018, he featured Macky 2 on a single titled ‘Finally’ which eventually became his signature song.
Yo Map’s passion for music began at an early age when he was a teenager schooling at Chibombo High School. While in school around 2008, he was in the choir and did more gospel songs than secular.
At home, his mother would not buy his idea to venture into music thereby grounding him to doing it while he was in school. This, however, did not dampen his spirit. He continued doing his thing while in school and luckily, his father Muyunda Mundia is the one who got him on the springboard to musical success. Mundia was a gospel singer and dedicated catholic.
Yo Maps dedicated his soul to music and learnt as much as he would from 2008. As fate would have it, he bumped into Slapdee who he learnt a thing or two from and in 2011, he released his first album. People now knew his name because the music industry in Zambia was going through a trying time with the beefing of Slapdee and Macky2 whose music careers started almost at the same time.
He made a comeback to Lusaka from Chingola where he had been and released “Ndimupondo”. The takeaway hits from this album were “I Am The President” and “Number 1 Fan”. They got Zambia into a frenzy given his young age at the time and great talent. Digital X Label released Yo Map’s first album
In 2018, he released “Finally” a song that fully set him on stage in the Zambian music industry. Even Macky 2 acknowledged that this was the beginning of a great Yo Maps. He went on to collaborate with big names among them Macky 2, Slapdee, Daev among others.
In 2020, his song “So Chabe” was one of his biggest songs of the year. In February 2021, he released “Pick It Up” featuring Mic Burner and the song claimed a top position in the charts within a month.
