Whitney Djoleto who goes by the stage name ‘Whitneé Dee’ was born on October 26th,1997 to Deborah Nartey, a native of Ningo, a suburb of Accra and Joseph Djoleto who also hails from Accra. From her early years, she was raised by her grandma in Tema Community 10. Whitneé was a very loud outspoken young lady with a fascinating humor often creating unending memories and spontaneous smile on the faces of her peers.
She relocated from Ghana to the USA at the age of 5 and enrolled at Dumfries Elementary School, Virginia.
She developed interest in music at a tender age of 11 and joined the church band. Interestingly, her music director blatantly told her she couldn’t sing and discouraged her from partaking in any singing drill to solely focus on playing an instrument the only way to make the church band.
Whitneé forgone all bad odds and remained resolute to learn and continuously practice to perfect her singing craft.
She takes solace in her mom who is also her number one supporter. Her mum entrusted her in the hands of a music director, Exgee who had a studio where Whitneé became a resident artiste and started nurturing her song writing skills and began recording at the age of 14.
Whitneé served in the American Army for four years but has now found her way back to her greatest pride,Whitnee’s style of writing is a mix of her experiences from the west and Ghana, as both play a critical role in her life.
Whitneé loves to dance and a decorated fashionista. She desires to win the Bet International Act of the year and astutely look forward to a shot at Grammy which she believe resides in hard work and dedication. She is willing to put in the work because she believes the Time is Now.
