Occupation: Football Player and Singer
Dumi is already a football star, having played professionally for SuperSport United and for Highlands Park, as well as a place in the national Under 21 and Under 23 teams.
“I don’t see why I can’t be a singing, football-playing celebrity,” the confident soccer star proclaimed at his first Idols SA audition in February.
Dumi started focusing on his music after breaking his leg in two places in a horrific car accident in 2008, which put a temporary halt to his football career. “Music has always been a great part of my life, since I was raised by parents who were also musicians,” he explains.
Dumi is very close to his parents, who celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary this year. “Home is always a place I want to visit regularly because my parents are the epitome of true love,” he says.
For the next couple of months home visits will be few and far between, though, as the aspiring singing, football-playing celebrity settles into the Idols SA house.
