There is a remixed version of "Uzun Ince Yoldayim" (On A Long Narrow Road), but it was released to the music video for that track and has not been published on audio.

Tarkan's 2003 musical offering was the first Tarkan album to be pacakaged in an Ecopak.

This album was different from the others in another aspect, too. It is a maxi single or album and is technically somewhere in between an album and a single. This means that there are not as many songs in the release as in a traditional album, but more songs than in a usual single, similar to an EP release. It is commonly seen as a preview to a main album. However, Dudu is generally archived under albums and seen as an album in itself.

Dudu was the first (and so far only one) of it's kind in Turkey to sell over 1,000,000 units.

After a successful collaboration on his Karma album, Tarkan once again collaborated with singer/songwriter Nazan Oncel for this album.

This was Tarkan's first album to come out of his own production company Hitt Music, part of Hitt Productions, but not his first work. He had already released zgrlk Iimizde and Bir Oluruz Yolunda from his own label. The first artist after him to release an album from Hitt Music was Nazan Oncel, with the album "Yan Yana Fotograf ektirelim" (Let's Take Photographs Together).

Also following on from the tradition of Karma, an official website was opened for this album.
