With her beautifully vintage vocals set on leaving its mark on music, burgeoning British-Nigerian R&B singer Deena Ade unveils her brand new single “Mati Lo” featuring the talented Dami Oniru.
The new single is a deep, smooth and sensual cut that thickly embodies new school R&B yet doesn’t shy away from Deena’s heritage. Executed delicately and with such grace, both Deena and Dami’s vocal performances together hold entrancing tendencies; Deena holds both a sense of richness and a timeless aura in the texture of her voice.
Translating roughly to “do not go yet”, “Mati Lo” sees Deena engulfed by her feelings of infatuation as she yearns for her lover not to leave.
“It came from a place of absolute desperation. I was desperate to keep him in my life. I had just broken up with my boyfriend and post break up I really improved my appearance. Something he had always subtly desired.
Whenever I knew I would see him or he was coming over. I would look my best, but it wouldn’t keep him around. He would want to leave and I would kick up a fuss…eventually he would decide to stay.”
Though a burgeoning talent, Deena’s repertoire is definitely that of a seasoned singer. A classically trained singer, she’s been singing and performing from the tender age of seven. Her talents gifted her the chance to perform for Nelson Mandela in London amongst other things. Now a bonafide artist, she gears up for a wonderful, forthcoming R&B project May Love Find You with this sensational single.
