A clip of Dumisani Dlamini talking about his daughter Doja Cat has re-emerged amid her latest rant, in which she calls him a “deadbeat dad.”

The US singer was born in 1995 to the South African actor and muso and his then-partner, Deborah Elizabeth Sawyer. 

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 DLAMINI ON DOJA CAT: ‘ONE DAY SHE’LL COME HOME’

On social media, Doja Cat and Dumisani Dlamini became trending topics because of her choice of words regarding her South African father.

One tweep reposted a clip of Dumisani talking about his daughter in an old interview on Mzansi Magic.

Speaking of his Grammy-winning child, he said: “She’s my daughter. It just blew up now as if there is 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”.

Speaking to  Tshisalive, Dumisani claimed that he planned to bring his US family back to South Africa – a move that never materialized.

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.”
