US Rapper Doja Cat On How She Has Never Met Her Father Dumisani Dlamini. A few years back we learnt that Yizo Yizo actor who also graced the screen as crocodile from Sarafina Dumisani Dlamini is a father to rapper Doja Cat.
What wasn’t known widely is that Dumisani and her daughter Doja Cat who grew up and resides in America never met. The 24 year old was born to Deborah Elizabeth Sawyer who is a Jewish-American artist. Although she proclaimed she has never met her father she goes by the name Zandile Dlamini.
“He’s always commenting (on my IG) “my African princess” and I’m like whaaat…,” she said on a YouTube video from 2019.
Speaking to TshisaLIVE Dumisani said : “Beautiful girl (who goes by) the name Doja Cat, she’s singing with Nicki Minaj. If you google you will see, it’s D. O. J. A. C. A. T, she’s one of the best singers now in America. That’s my daughter.”
The Moo rapper uttered the shocking statement of not knowing him after meeting legendary actress Whoopi Goldberg. The two met backstage to Doja’s concert, the meeting saw Cat introducing herself as a daughter of Dumisani.
Whoopi worked with Dlamini on a Sarafina film where she portrayed a character of a teacher Miss Masombula. The film was released in 1993. Even after all these years Goldberg seemed to have remembered Dumisani.

It is his responsibility as a father, I don’t get why people insist on her having to come down here.

Your dad is alive and well he knows very well you exist. It’s an unfortunate experiencing but it is a reality for many including myself. I had hope that the 90’s generation would change this cures but hai no
