About YabaBuluku Boyz
Yaba Buluku Boyz, founded in 2021, is a Mozambican music trio consisting of three artists recognized by their stage names: Dj Tarico, Nelson Tivane, and Preck. This dynamic group, fueled by the Geobek Standard for African Talent establishment, emerged during the challenging period of the 2020 pandemic and global lockdown.
In the midst of worldwide uncertainty, Dj Tarico, Nelson Tivane, and Preck, now collectively known as Yaba Buluku Boyz, converged in the studio to craft a sensational Amapiano hit. This track not only soared to the top of Spotify's charts, claiming the coveted position as the platform's number 1 viral song on TikTok with the #YabaBuluku and #YabaBulukuChallenge hashtags, but it also dominated Apple Music for an extended period, captivating a vast audience of over 50 million users participating in dance challenges on TikTok.
DJ Tarico, born Tárico Caifaz Samuel Simbine, is a multi-talented figure in Mozambique's music scene. Serving as a DJ, Hit Record Producer, Artiste, Composer, and Sound Engineer, he has become a global representative of Amapiano music. His debut album, 'Moz Piano,' released early in 2020, reflects the fusion of Amapiano with Mozambican pop music elements. Later in the same year, his self-produced international smash hit, 'Yaba Buluku,' featured a remix with Nigerian Grammy-winning superstar Burna Boy.
Nelson Tivane, an exceptional singer-songwriter and dynamic performer, is another noteworthy member of the Yaba Buluku Boyz. Hailing from Mozambique, Tivane brings a unique style to the trio, contributing catchy elements to their music.
Preck, also an artist from Mozambique, embarked on his musical journey in Inhambane. His initial fascination with Hip-Hop legends like DMX, JaRule, and Jay-Z led him to pursue a career in rap. However, after relocating to Maputo, Preck transitioned into singing. Despite facing initial discouragement, he persevered, evolving into the accomplished artist and vital member of the Yaba Buluku Boyz that he is today.
