In the evenings he would perform at restaurants and functions,and then get back home very late at night.As a result, he started sleeping in the afternoons. His fellow students started calling him Dozi as a result of the love for sleeping. The name stuck, and soon, everyone knew him as Dozi. Dozi was born on the 23rd of March in Hluhluwe in Kwazulu/Natal.
