British singer-songwriter Yetti Tabai is making waves in the Afrobeats scene with the release of her latest EP, “Smoke and Mirrors.”

This dynamic compilation, showcasing hits like ‘Labu Labu’ and ‘Eruku’ (Smoke & Mirror), is a testament to Yetti’s musical prowess and storytelling finesse. Eruku is the signature single for the Smoke n Mirrors EP.

“Eruku Diigi” means Smoke and Mirrors in Yoruba, and it’s a metaphor for the nature of sneaky relationships. Where a partner believes they can win over your heart with money. Eruku was written as a response to Rema’s song “Charm” Where he speaks about a small girl, with whom he has more money than her father. Yetti responds to his lyrics in the second verse of Eruku, educating the audience that her love and body is not for sale.
