Produced by Nigerian new wave artist and producer, Odunsi (The Engine), ’Tesla’ was one of the first tracks DETO recorded last year whilst in London. Encapsulating power and sexuality over a hard trap beat, ‘Tesla’ is an uncompromising anthem that encourages women to tap into and own their sensuality. The track follows on from DETO’s ‘Franchise’ freestyle alongside Skepta, Unknown T and Lancey Foux, released last October.
Speaking about the video, DETO explains: “With this video I wanted to channel the energy that comes from being unapologetically me. My idea of what it means to be a Black African woman and a rockstar; the perfect blend of divine feminine and masculine energy. I worked with the amazing Director, Aidan Zamiri to create very powerful and sexy imagery.”
Originally from Lagos, Nigeria, DETO made her debut as a rapper on Odunsi (The Engine)’s single ‘Body Count’ alongside Amaarae and Gigi Atlantic. Her verse on the track has been praised among critics and listeners making it a major standout on the project. She has been heavily involved in the Nigerian creative scene as a fashion muse, style icon, and model with notable features on Vogue, Dazed, Crack and most recently, as an ambassador for the Nike SKAir 5 launch in March 2021.
DETO BLACK is set to unapologetically break barriers and push music boundaries with the release of ‘Tesla’. Make sure to connect with her on social media for more music news.
