There is no way for you to have missed the South African comedian on any social media platform at all. Dimpie Dimpopo told tjil at the recently ended DStv Mzansi Viewer's Choice Awards that he has always been entertainer and it was perfect timing that made his work get recognition.

“I have been doing this thing of making people laugh since my school years. It's just that it popped out now and it spread too, thanks to the internet. I believe that everyone has their time in life and I guess this is my time to shine,” he said.

Dimpie Dimpopo, whose real name is Nadeem Poen, is known for being witty whilst seated in a car dancing to great music… or… hyping up an event or someone with his famous 'ladies and gentlemen, kings and queens, come on nana, oh Nkosi yami, maak vol wat leeg wat vol is and you don't want to miss this one', taglines. The 21-year-old said his journey started when he did a video in a car and people loved it. Since then he has not looked back. The comedian says he loves making people laugh at things they can relate to and this is all just by him being himself. “It's so exciting to know that my work has crossed borders. I have performed in Namibia before, I have been to Swakopmund and Keetmanshoop and it was beautiful. I performed alongside Adora and Namibians are just lovely. Language is never a barrier, many don't understand when I speak Setswana but that's what makes it special. I also speak Afrikaans,” he said. Dimpie Dimpopo said his Namibian fans need to stay tuned to his social media platforms as he will soon make his announcement for 8 December. The entertainer, who is also a brand ambassador for John Craig South Africa, hopes to venture into other regions for ambassadorial jobs and to keep entertaining people overall.
