Nigerian artist Deto Black today shares new single ‘Just Like Deto’, her first solo release since ‘Drop Off’ last year. Over a grimy beat courtesy of producer Cadenza, Deto reclaims the narrative around her artistry, taking aim at the influencers and imitators co-opting her image.
A fashion maven, Deto Black has modelled for Diesel, JBL x Vivdendii and Mowalola x Beats, and collaborated with the likes of Mowalola, Yves Tumor, Shygirl, VTSS and TeeZee. In 2021, Deto released her debut project ‘Yung Everything’.
Speaking on Just Like Deto, Deto says: “I wanted to talk my shit a little bit because I feel like people have perceptions of me and I never really speak on it. I’ve seen me and my friends on multiple moodboards from magazine cover stories to celebrities to the regular girl on Instagram; the girlies love the vibes lol. Also I love Vita’s song ‘Vita Vita Vita’ and I really loved how she used her name in the song. I also wanted to help people who aren’t Yoruba in pronouncing my name correctly.”
