Dangi Update

Dangi tries out his new golf clubs

Dangi got a brilliant present this morning – his own custom built golf clubs from golfclubs.com.au.

He was quick to give them a go, commentating to everyone on how he went with each shot and grinning away especially once he got the driver in his hands and smacked it down the long Nova corridor!

Team Joel chat to Dangi, the world’s shortest man

Team Joel’s Laura Bunting, Lakyn Heperi, Sarah De Bono, Prinnie Stevens, and Ben Hazelwood put Nova’s ‘Dangi Fever’ t-shirts on and chat to the man himself – Chandra Bahadur Dangi.

Using Sid Lama to translate, Dangi told them all about his village, the music he enjoys (folk music), and his recent visit up Centrepoint Tower.

He had them laughing when he referred to Sydney as a “very nice village”, and quickly shook his head when Lakyn asked him if he had any tattoos.

But his best line came when they asked what he had done this morning. He replied he “got up, brushed his teeth, and took a shit”! That’s our Dangi!

Dangi signing autographs

Chandra Bahadur Dangi is the world’s shortest man and the boys from Universal Music, are big ‘Dangi Fever’ sufferers, so wanted to get the t-shirt signed. They said it was going straight to the pool room!

Dangi goes up Centrepoint Tower

The world’s shortest man Chandra Bahadur Dangi, his nephew Dolakh Dangi, friend Sid Llama and Wippa all went to the Centrepoint Tower on Wednesday.

There was a 4D movie (fourth dimension is the feeling of movement) and so Dangi wacked the glasses on to get the full experience of animals flying at his head! Seeing he had no electricity in his house in Nepal, we think that was a pretty amazing experience for him.

We had a really clear day so Dangi got to see those amazing Sydney views. He had never even seen a skyscraper before he came to Australia so going up an observation tower was another new experience for the 72-year-old.

World’s shortest man Dangi goes to Bondi Beach

It was the first time the 72-year-old from Nepal had ever been to a beach, and Bondi Rescue’s Hoppo was there to say hi (or make sure he was OK!)

Dangi’s here for ‘Five Days of Dangi Fever’ with Fitzy and Wippa which finishes with a big live show from Opera Bar on Friday morning.

Dangi sees fish for first time at Sydney Aquarium

On Tuesday, Chandra Bahadur Dangi, with his nephew Dolakh and friend Sid Llama visited the Sydney Aquarium in Darling Harbour.

Dangi has lived his 72-year life entirely in Kalimati, a remote village in Nepal, so it really was an amazing experience for him.

More update on Dangi

Dangi settles into his Sydney hotel room

Fitzy and Wippa picked Dangi, the world’s shortest man, up from the airport then took him to his hotel.After a big grin for the boys, Dangi then settled back onto his king size bed that will be his home for the next five days as Fitzy and Wippa show him around Sydney.
At 72 years, Dangi is the world’s shortest man, and speaks no English. He had never left his remote village in Nepal until he was discovered as the world’s shortest man in February this year.

Dangi’s first interview with Fitzy and Wippa at Nova

Dangi, the world’s shortest man at 54.6cm, arrived in Sydney Sunday night to a hero’s reception from more than 100 fans, and Monday morning he came into the Nova studio for his first interview live on air.

Dangi’s nephew Dolakh helped him up into a special seat in the studio, and Sid Lama was translating.

It was a special feeling as Dangi told the boys about his remote village in Nepal, the 11 people who live in his small house and what life has been like since he was discovered as the world’s shortest man in February this year

Dangi’s first day out in Sydney

After arriving on Sunday night, Dangi got his first taste of Sydney on Monday, with tour guides Fitzy and Wippa by his side.

Dangi’s morning started at the Nova FM studio for his first live radio interview with Nova breakfast hosts Fitzy and Wippa.

Then it was on to the iconic Sydney Harbour, where there was a huge contingent of media waiting to speak to him and take his photo.

Next was Wild Life Sydney at Darling Harbour, where Dangi (along with nephew Dolakh and friend Sid Lama) got up close to a possum, koalas, kangaroos and even a snake which didn’t please him much! He also had a chat with Melissa Doyle from Channel 7’s Sunrise, so look out for that tomorrow morning.

Dangi gets up close to Australian animals

Dangi spent his first day in Australia getting to know our unique animals at Wild Life Sydney in Darling Harbour.

He wasn’t too sure about the possum but seemed to be keen to pat the koala and kangaroos.

Once he was through all his media commitments that is!
