She studied and learned singing, dance, percussion as well as drama with the Pan African Ki-Yi Mbock Company at the artists' village near Abidjan and spent time with Tiché Tiché dance company before relocating to Europe due to the unsettled situations in Côte d'Ivoire at the time.

Na Afriki(2007), Djekpa La You (2010) and Na Dré (2014)
Singing in a strong and melodic vocal style, Dobet has a dynamic and visual striking stage presence; singing in a strong and melodic vocal style that enhances her vocal appeal. She sings in 7 + languages which enforces the Pan African nature of her work.
