Local songstress Dato Seiko has released her highly anticipated single, 'The Vow'. The track had gained significant attention on TikTok before its official release, with a clamour from her followers for its debut.
The talented songbird launched her single last Friday and staged a successful release event the following day. Dato Seiko expressed to Arts&Culture her delight at the song's exceptional performance since its release, noting the overwhelming love it has received from Batswana.
"The song is doing really well as Spotify listeners have increased and it is number one on Botswana RnB charts on release day to date," she said proudly.
In a mere four days following its release, the song hit an impressive 17,743 streams on Spotify. The Wait hitmaker highlighted that the song's success extends beyond Spotify and is doing well on other digital platforms. “The song is playlisted in Audio Mack’s RnB gems and it is also number one on the Apple music charts locally,” she said.
Dato Seiko described her musical style as delivering soul-soothing melodies that lessen the challenges individuals face in life. “I found solace and inspiration in the melodies that filled my ears and music became my refugee. As a person who battled depression and anxiety, I want to use my talent to help people heal from the power of music as I believe our stories are intertwined,” Dato Seiko said. A poignant verse from the song underscores her commitment to sharing her talents with the world: Nobody can tell me that God is not patient, cause girl with you/ He took his time." This verse encapsulates her core values and dedication to her artistry. Dato Seiko reiterated her ambitious pursuit of international acclaim as an artist. "I am driven by big dreams. My ultimate goal is to transcend borders and make a global impact with my art," she said.
