For those thinking that most of Dimash's fanbase is just within Kazakhstan, well, you've been thinking wrong. A look at the comments shows us that he has fans from Peru to South Africa and even some in Spain.
Dimash seems to be extremely comfortable in his own language but we are yet to see if he will ace it when he sings in English. One thing is for sure, if he ever loses, his fans would be devastated, to say the least.
