There is no information on DJ Dimplez age, parents, and siblings yet. Although little is known about his childhood days, he had a flair for music when he was younger.
Since DJ Dimplez enjoys the hip-hop music genre, he began to hone his skills. In the process, he joined the Wits DJ Society, hoping to find gigs at student parties and local clubs. From there, he founded the Pop Bottles movement. Based on DJ Dimplez story, the idea came when he wanted to host his birthday party. Sharing his experience later, he said:
I was very clear about the idea. I wanted to create a different, branded hip hop experience. By then I’d been DJing for five years, so I knew the scene well. Nothing much happened on Sundays, and taking the party out onto a deck in the afternoon would be a whole new experience.
DJ Dimplez career
Initially called DJ Tumi, Dimplez's career began in 2004. When he attended Johannesburg events, including Reality and 115, his consideration for Deejaying began to gather momentum. Eventually, he bought his equipment in 2003 and launched out in 2004.
When he was starting, he had a little issue with choosing the perfect stage name. Names like Tombstone and Tumiza were part of the consideration. When he eventually settled for DJ Dimplez, he experienced a major transformation in his career. The first four years were challenging as he worked daily from coffee shops.
However, the hip-hop music genre was not popular in those days, but the DJ committed himself. He worked with Miller for five years and Vuzu and Channel O for seven years. Tumi played in notable clubhouses in Johannesburg and at corporate events. A few of them include Blacks Only Comedy and The Apprentice SA Finale.
As he began to win more fans, opportunities to travel began to beckon on him. Also, he played alongside some prominent DJs in the country, including DJ Oskido, DJ Fresh, DJ S’bu, DJ Kenzhero, and Milkshake.

DJ Dimplez rape scandal
Recently, the DJ found himself in the wrong book of the media following a rape scandal with a woman, Ms. Mamdiarah ’Kinky’ Diakoumpa. She claims that DJ Dimplez and herself met at Cassper Nyovest's 2020 birthday celebration. Unfortunately, he was overdrunk to remember anything that had happened that night. As a result, he claims that the woman raped him.
In her claim, she gave him R100 to buy morning-after pills, but it was not enough to get the drugs. She tried the coke and aspirin to hinder her from getting pregnant, but it did not work out. Eventually, she got pregnant, and the DJ was not pleased to hear that.
To prove her points, she shared a video of Dimplez and herself, which she took with his iPhone. Videos of him booking hotels were also taken to help him recollect what happened. While everyone looked forward to reading DJ Dimplez facts on the matter, he shared the following on his social media platform:
On the advice of my legal representatives, I wish to not address the matter any further, on social media or any other public platform. Nor am I at liberty to do so, as the matter is before the relevant authorities.
Although DJ Dimplez net worth is not known yet, he has made so much from his deejaying career. With persistence, DJ Dimplez has walked his way to the top, although his fans look forward to getting better entertainment stuff from him in the future.
