Tanzanian musician Ommy Dimpoz has joined the Sony Music Entertainment Africa family.

Talking about his signing, Sony Music Entertainment Africa MD Sean Watson said: “It’s a proud moment having an artiste of Ommy’s calibre make the decision to partner with us at Sony. We’re excited about joining forces with him to bring his amazing music to the ears of as many fans as we can.”

When asked how he feels about joining Sony, the bongo sensation said: “I am excited and honoured to join Sony Music Africa, a home of talented artistes globally.

“This partnership is a very important step in my music career at the right time in my life, to see my growth and diversity in the music career. I am looking forward to a great partnership and a very successful venture with Sony Music Africa.”

On December 14, 2020, Ommy dropped his new single and music video titled Dede featuring natives DJ Tira, Dladla Mshunqisi and Prince Bulo.

The video for Dede sees a fashionably styled Ommy move through a selection of performance scenes while flanked by choreographed dancers.

Ommy started his music career as a band vocalist for fellow Tanzanian artiste T.I.D and later on branched out as a solo musician with his first studio single titled Nai Nai featuring Alikiba. The single topped the charts and gave him a solid entry into the entertainment scene.

He followed that release with Mama featuring Christian Bella, and it scored him several awards and recognition as a credible musician in Tanzania and beyond.

Ommy received East African recognition with his third massive hit single Me and You in collaboration with Tanzanian songstress Vanessa Mdee. The single was a sweet summer love ballad that received traction across East Africa and with the above singles he marked his music career across East Africa.

He continued to produce several other hits including Sweetness with Dully Sykes, Hello Baby featuring Kenyan singer Avril, Achia Body, Tupogo, Wanjera, Ndagushima and Kajiandae.

Apart from being a musician, Ommy is a comedian and a fashion figure endorsing clothing brands GSM in Tanzania and Europa Art in South Africa alongside Pearl Thusi.
