Yas

other word formation type vowel change; interjection
An overwhelming expression of agreement or approval.
 
The coiner probably was seeking a term that was more expressive and affirmative version of "yes."
Etymology : Derived from "yes" from Old English gise, gese "so be it!," probably from gea, ge "so" (see yea) + si "be it!," third person imperative of beon "to be" (see be). Originally stronger than simple yea. (Online Etymology Dictionary).
