Speaking of the day outside the hospital after they heard DJ Dimplez' life-support had been switched off, his friend and industry colleague DJ Milkshake, real name Kagiso Mabelane, said they struggled to believe he wouldn't wake up.
“There's a lot to be said about Tumi, he became a brother to me ... A lot has been said, but to illustrate how strong-willed and how selfless he was, last week Sunday when we got to hear of his passing there were about six or seven of us outside the hospital."
Milkshake said he was standing next to DJ Speedsta when a mutual friend told them Dimplez' life-support had been switched off.
“A friend of ours who was with him when he passed said to us 'they turned off his life-support at about 12.45', so Speedy looked at the time and said 'No, but Shake, it's only ten past two, I mean the guy is just taking a nap, he's going to wake up now. Let's just give him a chance, everybody needs to calm down. He's gonna wake up' and we just looked at him. But I think that was such a strong testament to say that D was such a strong person and we knew we could always count on him, I think that's something we should all take with us today. D, we love you, we always have and we know you loved us too. Rest in peace,” he said.
