ChipperChelseaK ,

So happy you interviewed Dimash!!

I was so surprised to see you interviewed Dimash Kudaibergen! I really enjoyed it and loved how you tried to get answers as to what he does for enjoyment besides music. It’s a question he doesn’t answer much 😆 He didn’t really answer it here either. I love him either way though!
