Alfi Nipič inherited his singing talent from his mother Ana, a native of Zagreb, and began singing as a high school student. The desire to sing was so strong that he exchanged the Super Rifle jeans given to him by his mother, to her great indignation, for a guitar. He had his first musical performances at school celebrations, and his first public performance at a New Year's Eve party in the former Hutter's villa in 1960. At the youth dances in the newly built Hall C at the Maribor fairgrounds, he met the ensemble of Berti Rodošek. He sang with them a few times. He also performed with the ensemble Vitek in the Jadran café on Partizanska cesta.
A decisive appearance for Alfi Nipič's career was in the public broadcast of RTV Ljubljana Sončna ura. He won with then-popular Chubby Checker hit Let's Twist Again. His victory brought the Sundial to Maribor. In the duet with Damjan Katalinič, he sang Adrian Celentan's hit Everybody Dance in a duet with Damjan Katalinič. The door to the Yugoslav music scene opened for him.
