SA Music Award nominated artist Tumi “DJ Dimplez” Mooi has died.
According to sources, the DJ died on Sunday after collapsing and was rushed to hospital. He is said to have suffered a brain haemorrhage.
His family confirmed the news of his passing in a statement issued late on Sunday afternoon. The Mooi family asked for space and respect as they process their son’s tragic passing.
News of his passing comes just weeks after DJ Citi Lytes was hailed in a hail of bullets in Soweto and just a week after rapper Riky Rick was laid to rest, leading to many declaring that there is a “dark cloud” over the South African entertainment industry at the moment.
Oh Tumi… such a sweet, sweet soul. 🕊🙏🏽😭
