North Carolina’s very own Donutello is here to make a statement. The young artist recently went under a rebranding from his old name “Currentt” and took a small hiatus. He is making his heavily anticipated comeback as the new and improved “Donutello” and his fans are very excited. Born August 19, 1999, He is very young and has so much ahead of him. He is inspired by multiple artists and even says, “I believe different artists have inspired me in different ways. Lyrics/Content I’m inspired by Lecrae, L. DeJuan, J. Monty, Caleb Gordon & when it comes to sound and melodies, I would say A Boogie, Toosii, Godfearin & Polo G.” Donutello has been known in the past for his slick wordplay and melodies, so the anticipation for his re-debut is extremely high because fans have no clue what to expect.
We asked him what sparked his new name and he told us, “I prayed about this rebranding awhile, I didn’t know if I was going to change my whole stage name or not. But, My previous stage name was “Currentt” like right now & I felt that it was time to be more than just “right now”. I want to create work that is timeless, hand-crafted material ya know? & when I think of hand-crafted/hand-made I think of authentic, hands on, work, like sculpting , so I wanted my stage name to reflect that — and one of the world’s greatest sculptors was “Donatello” the italian sculptor.. & it really rang a bell to me because my real name is Donuvan & a lot of people already know me as Don so it really felt meant to be. I changed the “a” in donatello to a “u” because my real name is spelled the same way & that’s how Donutello came about.” Donutello is far from your average artist, he is very open about his relationship with Jesus Christ and this very unashamed approach has made him a very honorable person in his community.
