Breakthrough artist Maki achieves a new milestone with his discography earning a combined total of 100 million streams on Spotify.

The new feat comes after the successful release of his debut EP “Tanong” which features the viral tracks “Kailan?” and “Saan?” with the latter peaking at no.14 on Billboard Philippines Songs Chart.

“I can still vividly remember the time when we were joking around with the team when I first hit 1 million. I immediately told them, ‘Oh next time, it will be 100 million.’ Then we laughed as if it wouldn’t happen right away. We really didn’t expect it,” Maki said. “I never could have achieved this without the help of the team, my family and friends, and the people who support me every day – my ‘zushis.”

The “Saan?” hitmaker was also included in Spotify’s RADAR Philippines that recognized 10 of the country’s emerging artists. With his numerous achievements, Maki sees his success as motivation to move forward despite feeling discouraged at times and continuing to showcase his authenticity in his music.

“For me, I look at the numbers as validation for myself whenever I feel discouraged. There are times when we doubt our capabilities – our own talent. But at the end of the day, when I see these numbers, I have a realization and a reminder that ‘I have achieved this once in my life.’ I always go back to my roots and my core, knowing that I truly love the music that I want to release,” Maki shared.

The Kapamilya singer-songwriter dropped his latest single “HBD” last January under Tarsier Records which has now earned over a million streams on Spotify. He also recently collaborated with Angela Ken and Nameless Kids lead vocalist Nhiko Sabiniano for the song “Sikulo.” Maki is also preparing for future events to celebrate his new milestone with his fans.
