Rid­ing high on his suc­cess of 2015, win­ning the In­ter­na­tional Soca Monarch crown in Trinidad, Olatunji says he is not out to outdo him­self, but to get bet­ter at his craft, as an en­ter­tainer and as a per­son. So far he has re­leased two songs for car­ni­val 2016 “Bang, Bang” and “Sea­son­ally” on the Gold Medal Rid­dim.

Year­wood, 29, who is a for­mer Ju­nior Soca Monarch be­gan his mu­sic ca­reer in high school. Since the mid-night­ies he had been skirting the edges of soca suc­cess with of­fer­ings such as Get Wild, Wah Do and Win­ing Good, whilst hold­ing down a gig as a front­line singer with the leg­endary brass bands Roy Cape All Stars and Traf­fic.

In late 2014 he re­leased Ola in time for the 2015 sea­son and it has gone on to be­come his big­gest hit to date. Not only did he win the in­ter­na­tional soca monarch per­form­ing the song, but has been tour­ing ex­ten­sively as well.
