Tinotenda Marimo, also known as DJ Rimo, a well-known disc jockey, has moved into music and is slated to release a single track this week.
DJ Rimo rose to prominence mostly as a result of his friendship with the late famed socialite Genius “Ginimbi” Kadungure, with whom he used to live in the fast lane, hosting the popular all white parties.
Rimo, the Africa social entertainment award winner, said he has a busy year ahead and will lead this year’s Victoria Falls carnival for the first time.
Vic Falls carnival, which is Africa’s biggest celebration of its diverse music, arts and culture and a once-in-a-lifetime experience set in one of the seven wonders of the world, is slated for April 28 to 30.
Speaking to the Herald on the new track, DJ Rimo said the fans should expect it on Friday.
“2023, besides touring other countries this year, l am going to produce my own music.
“My first single drops on February 3, 2023 and I am very excited and cannot wait to produce more music,” he said.
DJ Rimo said for the first time, he will be rubbing shoulders with Africa’s finest DJs and artists at the spectacular event.
He said was happy to be one of the performing DJs at the carnival and has promised nothing but fireworks.
“This is my first time playing at the carnival.
“As a DJ playing at one of the biggest events in Zimbabwe, it’s like I won the lotto and this is an opportunity to showcase my art on the decks, not only for my fellow Zimbabweans, but for foreigners as well.
“People should expect a dose of the Rimo experience. When I am on the decks, I always come with a different vibe. I am never predictable, especially during outdoor events,” he said.
Talking of the auspicious Vic Falls Carnival event, DJ Rimo cited it as an experience that will “top your bucket list”, not only is the setting spectacular but the adventure is non-stop.
He said there will be a mix of local and international music fans.
DJ Rimo was one of the best and most sought-after disc jockeys in 2022.
Other performing artists at the carnival include South African electronic duo Black Motion, Anita Jaxson and Nitefreak.
