Yavor Yanakiev (Bulgarian: ? ?, born 16 May 1985) better known by his stage name 100 Kila (stylized also as 100KILA)(Bulgarian: 100 ?), is a Bulgarian rapper, actor, songwriter and entrepreneur from Varna, Bulgaria. His stage name is an acronym of the word 100 kilograms in Bulgarian.
Yanakiev was born and raised in a Romani neighborhood of concentrated poverty in Asparuhovo, Varna. He lived with his parents and brother, until their father left them. In the mid 90s his mother moved to Greece, in hopes of sustaining her family and to encourage Yavor's education. His parents separated when he was 6. Yavor subsequently moved to his grandmother's home in Targovishte where he studied in school until the 8th grade, before eventually dropping out due to absence and low grades.
In the early 2000s, Yanakiev started his musical career after meeting prominent Bulgarian rapper Big Sha. He was immediately signed to his record label R&B Records and enjoyed several successful years in the label alongside several other artists such as Vanko 1, Konsa, Gumeni Glavi and Loshite. He also achieved great notoriety with the singles "Vav kluba" featuring Consa and "Chiki-Na-Na" by Gumeni Glavi respectively. He also featured on the Big Sha songs "Ritam basov" (Bass rhythm) and "Kukite me debnat" (The cops are onto me).
