Cape Town – Content creator and popular rapper Simiso “OkMalumKoolKat” Zwane took to Instagram on Tuesday to pen a lengthy heartfelt message in honour of the late DJ Dimplez’s contribution to the hip hop fraternity.
Tumi “DJ Dimplez” Mooi’s family issued a statement last week confirming his untimely death from “a sudden brain haemorrhage”.
DJ Dimplez was the founder of the popular lifestyle event Pop Bottles.

According to Joburg, Pop Bottles was all about lifestyle living. It introduced intimate Sunday afternoon hip-hop experiences that would take place across South Africa, with the events starting at midday, allowing for a relaxing afternoon of socialising and networking before moving onto a lively nightlife experience.
“I personally learnt a lot about how to see your vision through, from watching him and his team pull off those events and how they sold and marketed the brand, and got other brands involved was genius as well,” said OkMalumKoolKat.
OkMalumKoolKat said that the late DJ was a pioneer and a “legend” in the event organising business.
“To me and anyone who was coming up in the Jozi Northern Nightlife – especially in the Hip Hop scene – between 2006- till now will attest to the fact that DJ Dimplez is a legend and also one of the pioneers in the event scene, especially when he birthed the Pop Bottles concept,” he said.
