Prior to turning to singing, Doni started his education as a pharmacist but his passion for music prevailed. He began studying music in 1988 and started his professional music career in the 1990s as a member of the bands "Atlas" and "Medikus".[1] Doni subsequently formed one of the most successful musical duos in Bulgaria with Momchil Kolev or simply Momchil.
