The record and entertainment label, Dizzy Monk Entertainment (DME) was established in 2010 by Khoroane Rammotsi aka TopGogg, who works as both a rapper and producer, with his then partners. The studio was originally based at the SABC (radio park) and took over space from the rock band DM members were previously involved in as MC’s.
The band, Mid Effekt, got a song onto 5fm and got into the finals of The Jeigermeister Back the Artist competition. Ridwaan Randles, aka NawtyRyma who was exploring music at the SABC, would also come to perform for Mid Effekt alongside TopGogg in studio and at live shows.

However, the MC’s found it necessary to form their own space and took over the studio from the dissipating band. In the time since its inception, Dizzy Monks has produced and recorded works for TEARGAS, CashtimeFAM, Mshoza, ZubzThaLastLetta and Truey Donatello. DM has also featured on 5FM, Metro FM, Lesedi FM, Umhlobo FM, Touch HD and Alex FM.
