Early life and education

Debsito was born in The Democratic Republic of the Congo to a renowned Rumba singer Debaba, who died ten years ago. While growing up, Debsito was highly inspired by his father, and later on, even took his name as an alias as a tribute to him and his legacy. At an early age, Debsito developed a certain interest in Congolese music but eventually he inclined towards the music composed by the urban artists of the 2000s such as Craig David, Nas, Sean Paul, Usher, which is clearly reflected in Debsito’s music.

Later Debsito completed his university studies and obtained a master’s degree in finance.


Debsito has been actively participating in various events in the music industry for the past decade. Simultaneously he also worked in the corporate sector working for various companies. During this time, Debsito was also a member of the group Black Bazar[11] formed by the famous writer Alain Mabanckou. He traveled across continents and performed on European, African,[12] and Caribbean stages along with a number of Congolese music personalities in this group including Popolipo, Do akongo, CNN alligator, Balou Canta, and Niuver.[13]

In 2014, Debsito decided to embark on his entrepreneurial journey and devoted himself to musical pursuits.[14] In 2019, he released his debut video song titled Parano[15] which acquired over 2 million views on Youtube. An acoustic version of the title "Parano" was also released in June 2020 at the request of his audience.[16]

In 2021, Debsito released his first EP "Etincelles" a project with urban afro-pop sounds.[17] This EP became one of the top 10 music trends on YouTube in the month of June 2021.[18][19] “Etincelles” represents the premise of his artistic universe that he wishes to introduce to the public, which is a taste of everything he wishes to offer. On the other hand, it also represents a spark he has been growing within him.[20]

In the upcoming future, Debsito plans to release his second project “Etincelles” part II.
