Youssef Soukouna (born April 20, 1981 in Goutte d'Or, Paris), better known by his stage name Sefyu (French pronunciation: [sɛfjy], his first name in verlan), is a French rapper of Senegalese descent. He comes from Aulnay-sous-Bois (“Cité des Emmaüs”), a city in the French department of Seine-Saint-Denis (North Eastern suburbs of Paris). Sefyu originally aspired to become a professional soccer player, but his dream was derailed after he sustained an injury. He emerged on the hip-hop scene in the early 2000s.
