Doja Cat has seemingly backtracked on her comments insulting her father, Dumisani Dlamini.


The US singer trended on social media on Monday, 27 May, after she launched a foul-mouth social media rant aimed at her South African dad.

Doja was born in 1995 to the Durban actor and muso and his then-partner, Deborah Elizabeth Sawyer.

Dumisani – known for his roles in Sarafina and Yizo Yizo – left the US to return home. Doja has yet to visit South Africa. It’s unclear if Doja has ever met Dumisani.


In an Instagram post, Doja Cat put her father, Dumisani Dlamini, on blast yet again.

In it, she called him out for “abandoning” his family and being a “b*tch.”

One follower – likely a South African – was not impressed with Doja’s words, commenting: “You are messing with the wrong one. Zulus don’t play…your ancestors will humble you”. Doja Cat clapped back: “Go give the deadbeat a kiss on the lips for me.”

She added: “[Dumisani] gave me a lazy eye and dipped.”

However, before the day was up, Doja seemingly had a change of heart. The 28-year-old changed her caption to: “JK [Just Kidding] Love you, I was mad.”

In a 2020 interview with Metro FM, Dumisani Dlamini claimed he had, in fact, attempted to reach out to Doja Cat. However, his efforts were allegedly halted by the singer’s management.

“They don’t want me to connect with her. I have tried to send her messages on social media,” he said.

“I’m looking forward to connecting with her because, as a Zulu girl, she needs to come and meet with her ancestors.”

He added: “I have tried to search for my baby and the company that runs her entertainment has been blocking me. They know that if I could get hold of her, maybe she will disappear from the picture … I know my daughter, wherever she is, is looking for me.”

In 2021, Dumisani spoke to Mzansi Magic about his belief that Doja Cat would visit South Africa.

Speaking of his Grammy-winning child, he said: “She’s my daughter. It just blew up now as if there was something wrong. People are changing stories.”

He added, “We don’t want to dwell [on the past]. One day, she will come home, and everyone will see her.”

Dumisani insisted he was proud of Doja “even before she became a superstar.”

In a 2019 interview with Leah Henry and DJ Quicksilva, Doja Cat opened up about not knowing her father.

She said: “I have never [met him], and he’s on Instagram. And he comments on my pictures sometimes. He’s an incredible dancer and great actor, but yeah, I don’t know him very well”.
