Dino is also famous for his popular album release, mainly successful in home country, Croatia.

His breakthrough however, was his appearance on Croatian television's Turbo Limach show for children ("Lima,," is Zagreb youth slang for Mali - "little one"), when he was only about 7 years old. Besides his native Croatia, he has performed in cities like Cairo (Egypt), Figueira da Foz (Portugal), Alicante (Spain), Bucharest (Romania), Rimini (Italy) or Kaunas (Lithuania) before going to Copenhagen.
