Following the successful  presentation of the concert in 1975 Damayantha left for the UK to pursue higher studies in Hotel management. In  2001 Damayantha  got back into the local show biz with the Tribute to Clarence show which was a fund raiser for his alma mater Ananda College, Colombo. His entertainment
company at the time was known as DR Entertainments where he was supported by Rajiv Sebastian.  Damayantha presented several shows prior to setting up his own show biz company DK Promotions in 2004.  For the past 17 years  Damayantha has  presented more than 100 shows with different titles and concepts.

DK promotions has  presented some of the shows in collaboration with organizations as fund raisers.
