Dimash was trained in classical and contemporary music and has become a popular pop singer in Kazakhstan and abroad, known for his melodic voice. 

Dimash Dears, the term used for diehard Dimash fans, posted the video and photos on their Instagram account, saying that it was a “special present for Dimash’s 26th birthday.”

“The Dears planted 2780 trees (flower sticks) in the name of Dimash on the edge of the desert in northwestern China, hoping to play a role in wind protection and sand fixation, and improve the environment. We always keep in mind Dimash’s love and kindness when we do our work so we also hope that this little heart will make a corner of the earth better,” wrote his Chinese fans. 

Dimash’s official fan club was founded in January of 2017 in China, which is known worldwide for its extensive fandom culture, and was officially certified by Dimash and China’s BG Talent agency.  The goal of the club is “no matter where Dimash is in the world, Chinese Dears will go there to support.”

Kudaibergen, known for his impressive six-octave range, achieved overnight success in China in 2017 after he debuted at China’s popular “I am a Singer” TV contest, where he finished second. His popularity started to skyrocket with thousands of fans not only in China but throughout Asia and the entire world. 

The performance in the contest brought Kudaibergen a top award at the China Top Music Awards in the Best Asian Popular Singer category. 

Born into a family of musicians, Kudairgen began performing at a young age.  At the age of two, he had his first appearance in a small theatre play, while continuing to grow his interest in musical instruments and taking piano classes when he was five. 

In December, he performed for a packed hall at the Barclays Centre in New York as part of his Arnau World Tour that was supposed to continue this year with concerts in Prague, Hamburg, Dusseldorf, Stuttgart and Minsk. The Kazakh singer had to postpone his tour because of the coronavirus outbreak.
