Schooling

Not much was known about DJ Dimplez’s early education. At the tertiary level, he attended Wits University where he pursued a degree in psychology.

Career

DJ Dimplez was inspired to get into deejaying after he went to Reality and 115 events in Johannesburg. He started out in 2004 after he got himself deejaying equipment. Despite the unpopularity of hip hop at the time, DJ Dimplez ventured into it and his contributions to its growth are widely celebrated today.

DJ Dimplez worked with Vuzu and Channel O. It was at Channel O where he came up with his name DJ Dimplez. Previously, he went by the name DJ Tumi but felt that it didn’t resonate with Channel O. He also worked at METRO FM alongside DJ Milkshake.

DJ Dimplez will also be remembered for his event POP Bottles. This is a lifestyle event that’s been dubbed as one of the best in Johannesburg. The latest edition was held between 12 December 2021. 

DJ Dimplez had a number of songs to his name amongst 'Way Up' which has accumulated over 1 million views on YouTube. He also released 'Yaya' featuring Dreamteam and Anatii, 'What A Night' featuring Telleman & Kwesta, 'Clean in this B' featuring Burna Boy amongst others.

Relationships

DJ Dimplez was very secretive about his love life. There’s not much to tell you about his previous or current relationships. Whether DJ Dimplez had a wife or children, we cannot independently verify those details.

Controversy

Who raped DJ Dimplez?

In 2021, DJ Dimplez accused a woman identified as Mamdiarah “Kinky” Diakoumpa of rape after she revealed that she slept with him when he was intoxicated.  Mamdiarah shared details of the uneventful night on social media in a bid to get DJ Dimplez to take responsibility for his unborn child.  

In a twist of events, DJ Dimplez accused his baby mama of rape as he argued that the sex wasn't consensual. He even filed a case at the Sandton Police Station. 

The pair met at a Cassper Nyovest party. Mamdiarah said she went out with the deejay a couple of times but on this night in question, DJ Dimplez was reluctant to take her home thus checked into a hotel.

She then learnt of her pregnancy and shared the news with DJ Dimplez who wasn't interested in having the baby. He gave Mamdiarah money to purchase the morning after pills but went for a mix of coke and aspirin.  

It's not clear whether the case progressed further.

Net Worth

DJ Dimplez wasn’t the most flashy artist but he built a successful career. That said, details about DJ Dimplez’s net worth are not in the public domain.
