Dotman’s major blow-up came in 2021 with the release of Hakuna Matata, his debut album, which found him tempering his talent’s skill with a desire to craft music to soundtrack all kinds of occasions after years as one of Afropop’s good talents. That gamble paid off for the rest of the project, as he sounded both familiar and refreshed, evoking feelings of desire, thanksgiving, and joy.
Later that year, Dotman collaborated with DJ Neptune, a hit-making disc jockey and artist, on “Drunk In Love,” a song that saw Dotman push even more into the snappy flows that made Hakuna Matata such a stunning collection of work.
The duo compliments each other to a tee as Dotman weaves his whispery delivery in and around the song’s pockets while DJ Neptune offers his distinctive callouts over a peppy rhythm that contains excessive shakers and percussive drivers.
The vocalist collaborates with Peruzzi on his latest track, “Say No More,” for a charming showcase that crosses the boundary between street music and pop extravagance. The singer informs his interest that he’s down to fulfill all of her requirements, no matter how improbable they may be, as part of the thematic premise of being inspired by romance. The message is clearest when Peruzzi enters to contribute his verse to the flow of things, as both vocalists reach into each other’s world to deliver their messages.
