Dj Dimplez- initially called Dj Tumi when he began his DJ career in 2004.
Although his birth name, “Tumi” did not appeal to Channel O Vj Lungile Radu six months into his career. During an interview in the channels popular show called “Oboma”. A lot of names came up which included Tumiza, Tombstone that was all complete “no no’s”. Ten seconds before lights, camera, action, the name Dj Dimplez came up and that was the turning point of his career.
This young gentleman in his 20’s always had the love for music. The idea of Djing came as he attended Joburg events such as Reality and 115. This led to him buying his own equipment in 2003 and by 2004 he had joined the Wits Dj Society. Cramped in their own minute private room, they would often get together and practice to perfect their skills. Although hip-hop was not big in the Joburg party scene at the time, Dimplez continued playing this genre and within a few months, he found himself playing for huge crowds of thousands of people.
His career has led him to travel throughout the world playing at different events. Dimplez has also played in most clubs in Johannesburg and major corporate events, which include “The Apprentice S.A Finale”, “Blacks Only Comedy”, and the list goes on. Earning his name as one of the top hip-hop DJs, Dimplez has played alongside the likes Dj Fresh, Dj Cleo, Dj Oskido, Dj S’bu, C-live, Milkshake, Naked Dj, and Dj Kenzhero.
