Dozi the legend
Dozi is going on to almost three decades in the music industry.
Dozi recently released his brand-new album, VREDE that combines a collection of music that will not only make you feel nostalgic about the past, but will inspire hope for the future and make you appreciate the present.
Dozi, also know as Henk Opperman, was born in Hluhluwe and grew up on a farm in Standerton. Dozi started singing and playing guitar at the age of twelve and has always been a great source of entertainment to his friends, family and fans.
After completing his military service, Dozi studied graphic design at the Technikon of Pretoria and, on a night out, he secured himself a regular gig at the local Spur. It was the beginning of a very long and successful music career. Dozi performed until the early hours of the morning, which led to his nickname – Dozi – because he was so fond of sleeping during the day.
Dozi's professional career only really took off after meeting Hansie Roodt and Lydia Winchester. His first album, Mercy, which was a spiritual Zulu album, was released in 1999 and earned him a SAMA nomination for Best New Artist. Several award-winning platinum sellers, including Op Aanvraag, Storm op die Horison, Siyaya – Ons Gaan… and numerous number one radio hits followed.
More About Dozi
Not only has Dozi become a regular at the country’s biggest music festivals and concerts over the years, but he has also gained notoriety on television for his own program – Kom ’n Bietjie Binne –, as a coach in two seasons of the reality show, Supersterre, and as a regular guest artist on Noot-vir-Noot.
Dozi once said: “I am inspired by what I hear, smell, see and feel. Although I regularly listen to international music, I am careful not to be overly interested in current music trends. A lot of people fall into that groove and then everything ends up sounding the same,” the singer shares. “I enjoy any type of music and will sometimes listen to classical music for hours. Blues has also become one of my favourite genres, because it speaks to me and I like the fact that it is a little behind the times.”
