Tanzanian singer Ommy Dimpoz is back on his feet and literally making up for lost time after undergoing successful throat surgery.
Dimpoz’s quest to regain his crown at the top has, according to Amani newspaper, gained momentum after he dropped two hits on his return; Ni Wewe and You are the Best.
He is said to be making money in and out of Tanzania with bookings spread over the entire year.
“Mungu ni mkubwa, jamaa (Dimpoz) anakula shoo na kukimbizana na kina Kiba na Mondi,” said one of the singer’s confidants who did not want to be named.
To show for it, his latest purchase is a Range Rover Sport.
However, the fact that it was numberless and parked outside a popular car revamp dealer, TTTR, did not convince some on his social media page who saw it as a marketing gimmick.
But according to Aidan Seif – one of his managers, the singer is doing well and the car is a testament of his hard work.
“Kuhusu gharama yeye mwenyewe ndo’ anajua, lakini kuhusu kulimiki, ni kweli ni gari lake analomiliki kwa sasa,” Aidan told Amani.
Dimpoz was not doing badly before he experienced throat complications that saw him being flown out of the country for treatment.
He used to cruise around the streets of Dar es Salaam in a sleek Toyota Prado.
