A tweet caught the rapper's attention when the user suggested he made R70 million from it. This is a result from the booking and radio airplay it has been receiving as well as streams and views.

“K.O made R70 Million with SETE so far including airplay, bookings, streams, and views. He was the most booked artist last with over 990+ shows excluding international bookings,” the tweep said.

K.O responded to this and used the slang for lies, which is a cap emoji.
“This Mitchell & Ness (cap),” he reacted.

SETE reached a success nobody saw coming. The rapper's hit song which features rapper Blxckie and Young Stunna spent 12 weeks on the SA music charts.

"It is a phenomenal achievement and for the industry as well. We are very proud of him as RISA and SA Charts. We are here to mark this moment and celebrate with him, we are delighted that he could join us and receive his flowers.” said  RISA spokesperson Lesley Mofokeng.

They gifted him with a plaque to mark his achievement. K.O reacted to this by saying, “Yezuur, thank you so much to the Sony Team and of course my team. Thank you to Stunna, Blxckie, and all the contributors, today is a monumental day, and receiving a plaque for 10 million streams was something I didn’t forsee coming. I also want to share a message an encouraging message to the upcoming artist out there, don’t ever give up on yourself, keep doing what you love, and put God first. Bless!”
Recently the originality of the song was brought into question. K.O set the record straight saying he bought the beat, "UPDATE: Pt. 1: How artists/beatmakers collab in today’s largely virtual music industry… I bought the #SETE beat on an online platform via @Calliemajik ‘s page (original producer). Discovered other artists had used it so we replaced some of sounds to make mine unique," wrote K.O.

He added, "Pt. 2: I hold full Unlimited Rights to the License of the instrumental I bought which is why the artists who also put out their own versions rightfully cannot disputed mine cos we’re all governed by the same or lesser Copyright. Normal practice in today’s music world Dankie" wrote K.O.
