The story behind hit song "DOTA o Ako" celebrates 10th year anniversary

I have seen the phrase "DOTA o ako" in my friends' statuses and I didn't realize it was already 10 years ago when it came out. The online game has made many relationships crazy because of attention it receives from the gaming community. I also did not know that there's actually a song and music video released during that era until Netlix reminded us about it.

The music video sequel, “DOTA At Ako” features Aikee and Vanessa 10 years later, taking their relationship (and their relationship with DOTA) to a whole new level. The duo also shares more of their thoughts on the song.

“To be honest, I can’t even imagine that my song 10 years ago ay magkakaroon ng sequel at hindi lang basta sequel bagkus sequel ito with Netflix,” says Aikee. “Kaya sobrang saya po ng puso ko dahil nabigyan ulit ng chance ang awiting tumatak sa tao isang dekada na ang nakalipas.”

“I was so excited in general to be working with Aikee again cause it has really been a long time since our collaboration -- 10 years ago to be exact. We've gotten so busy individually with our careers so it was definitely time to catch up and reminisce in a super memorable and major way!” adds Vanessa. “So when I got the call to do a remake I immediately canceled my schedule and confirmed! I knew I was gonna do it! I had to do it for sure! And especially ecstatic to do the sequel with Netflix because I am OBSESSED!”

True to the iconic original music video, the sequel from Netflix features an all-new song done in a cheesy, Pinoy videoke style that will have every DOTA fan singing along.

When asked about what they’re most excited for DOTA fans to see, Aikee shares, “Sa song kasi ng ‘DOTA o Ako,’ hindi nasagot kung ano nga ba ang pinili ko. Dito kasi ay masasagot ko na ang tanong na nakalutang ng sampung taon. At gusto kong makita nila kung paano ako lumipad, hahaha!”

“I'm really most excited for them to see the ending, who we ended up with in the music video,” continues Vanessa. “And I'm especially excited for them to see the outcome because we had an AWESOME TEAM that helped remake this video and take it to that ultimate next level!”

Vanessa also hopes that DOTA fans love the sequel and the Netflix Original Anime series, saying, “Please watch our ‘DOTA o Ako’ sequel! Because it's genuinely for the fans who really loved the song and continue to support and listen to it for 10 years now. I can't even believe it's been that long! So this is our thank you to everyone who supported us and definitely watch the Netflix series because for sure all you DOTA fans will love it!”

DOTA Dragon's Blood is now streaming on Netflix. Watch the trailer here:
