Dami has had the privilege to work with several mainstream recording Gospel and Afrobeat artists including Nathaniel Bassey, Gabriel Eziashi, Limo Blaze, Yemi Alade, Cobhams Asuquo, Uche Agu, just to mention a few. He further had the opportunity to perform on one of the biggest stages in the world “The Experience Lagos” with around 750,000 people.

He is the founder of “Its More Than Drumming” (IMTD) which is an initiative to support up-and-coming drummers in Africa as well as to identify and showcase talented drummers/musicians from local communities. This initiative provides a platform for the artistry of drumming to be appreciated and serves as a source of inspiration for young kids globally. The first UK event was held in 2018 in Birmingham and the first IMTD live event since 2020 in Nigeria was sold out with just over 700 people attending.
