Dumisani Dlamini has hinted that he and his daughter Doja Cat have reunited in the States. He revealed this after a troll came for him for posting his daughter in a sweet Instagram post.
Legendary actor Dumisani Dlamini is the father of American singer Doja Cat but she has always opened up about not having a close relationship with her father.
The Sarafina actor shared a video clip of an interview Doja Cat did where she found out that her father was not only a dancer and actor, but he is also a producer.
The Vegas hitmaker was very shocked to find out her father is also a music producer and she showed excitement over this revelation.
He captioned the video, “Tell me something, let me hear from you. Please, we love each and every comment.”
His post was met with some loving comments from his followers as well as some negative ones. One comment said, “You ran away to the edge of the world and married 3 women had 30 children. Deborah was struggling to pay her rent with your OWN children. You aren’t fooling anyone.”
Responding to a negative comment, Dumisani said he is in New York spending some quality time with his baby. “Take your medication and relax. I am in New York with my baby ok.”
Here are some of the heartwarming comments:
thatoseema9: “Wow this is so cool, siyakubongela bhuti (we are happy for you.) So easy to see that she likes you, acknowledges you and is proud of you.
theesativa_: “I’ve been following Doja since SoundCloud, oh my gosh I love how she grew. You have an Amazing Talented Daughter.”
dojacatchart: “I hope you and your daughter meet and get to spend time together! You guys are both so talented! I’m sure you are very proud of her.”
dojas.motive: “Sir your daughter has helped me with some tough times with her music. You’re so lucky to have an amazing daughter like miss Amala.”
Trolls had bullied Dumisani into deleting a post where he was happy for Doja after winning a Grammy for her collaboration with SZA called Kiss Me More, which won them the Best Pop Duo Performance.
Doja had told his co-star Whoopi Goldberg that she never met her father and Whoopi described him as “a good man”.
However, speaking to Mo Flava on Metro FM, Dlamini said, “I have been looking for my daughter as well. You mustn’t forget these Americans. Americans will always want to have something to cause a stir, so that she stays in the media and is talked about around the world,” he said.
“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.”
“I am close to my kids, all of them. I love them and they love me,” he concluded.
