Kwab was born in Ghana, Africa where music and poetry was always a strong staple in his family. He was exposed to writing poetry at a young age through his father who is an accomplished and published poet. This in turn steered him to head in a creative direction with whatever he wanted to pursue.

At the age of 12, his immediate family moved to the United States to try and pursue a better life. They moved all over staying with other family members that lived in New York, Chicago and Las Vegas. Apart from being exposed to culture shock, he was also exposed to different elements and aspects of music that he incorporates into his style today.

Kwab prides himself in his songwriting, production and creativity with each record he works on. He is influenced by many different artists/producers he listens to and personally works with.

"Each artist has a unique element which leads to listeners gravitating towards their sound and I try to emulate that by bringing my own uniqueness to each record. I have a different background than most and I have been through a lot in my lifetime. May it be a song of pain, love, my personal struggles or just my nightlife, each song I write is a reflection of a part of me hence the name and acronym Y.e.S! Your entertainment system is me giving each listener a view into my crazy world. Music is my way of painting my picture in each mental canvas and hoping each listener can admire the view with their ears."
