Dumisani – who also fathered a son, Doja’s brother Raman Dalithando – left the US to return home. Doja has yet to visit South Africa. It’s unclear if she has ever met Dumisani.

Dumisani has yet to address Doja Cat’s latest rant

WHAT DID DOJA CAT SAY ABOUT HER DAD?

On Monday, 27 May, Doja Cat launched a foul-mouth social media rant aimed at her father, Dumisani Dlamini.

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.”

Under a post on Dumisani’s Instagram account, Doja Cat commented: “F**k you”.

In a 2019 interview with Leah Henry and DJ Quicksilva, Doja 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”.

‘SHE’LL REGRET WHAT SHE’S DOING’

Meanwhile, several South Africans are calling out Doja Cat for disrespecting not only her father but also her African roots.

@theHirohito: “Can we all agree that in African culture, swearing at your parents publicly is an equivalent to cursing yourself, like Doja Cat is doing there on IG?

@Priddyzaddy: “She’s playing with fire this one.”

@__ThapeloM: “She’ll regret what she’s doing.”
