Deto Black Is Very Online

HUNGER slides into the musician and fashion muse's DMs to talk TikTok, Bratz and memes.

With just two solo singles under her belt, few artists are as hotly tipped as Lagos-raised rapper Deto Black. Not only has she already collaborated with the likes of Skepta, Unknown T, Lancey Foux, Odunsi (The Engine) and Amaarae, she’s a fashion icon in her own right, serving as a muse to cult designer Mowalola and starring in Theophilus London’s Off-White campaign. 

As she drops new track “Brag” we slide into her DMs to talk Bratz, TikTok and her favourite meme.
