Trivia: – The story behind how DMTN was formed is a heart-warming one that all begins with Inati himself: It was the year 2004 and Inati was practicing alongside MC Mong (they were group members at the time) when suddenly, he started to feel intense, throbbing head pains. He was immediately rushed to the hospital, and MC Mong followed him. There, MC Mong was told by the doctors that Inati had suffered a brain hemorrhage and was currently in a coma — it was extremely likely that he would not wake up. Needless to say, MC Mong prayed for Inati’s well-being, paid for all of his hospital fees, took care of him for two straight months, and swore to him this – “If you wake up, I‘ll produce an album under your name.” Miraculously, Inati eventually ended up waking up from his severe coma. It soon happened that in 2005, near the end of his recovery, MC Mong had already hand picked members for a new group that later would become renowned as Dalmatian (now DMTN)
