The song became a hit, sold 500,000 copies, and earned him a golden certificate. Eventhough he released  many songs he did not release a studio album.
He was invited for the Nightvision party of  OGAE Turkije, which he had to cancel, because he was not feeling well. Shortly after he was found dead by his daughter. Çetin Alp died of a heart attack 18-5-2004, aged 56.
