Penuel Mlotshwa – nicknamed “South Africa’s Nick Cannon” – has taken to his X account to wish himself a happy Father’s Day.

The outspoken podcaster –  has seven children with five different women –  and has spoken about being a “present” father.

Last month, the YouTuber vowed to fight to see one of his children, whom he claims his baby mama has “denied him access” to.

Penuel has made headlines in recent months after one of his baby mamas accused him of being physically abusive, cheating, and making “misogynistic” comments to his underage children.


In a tweet on Sunday, 16 June, Penuel tweeted: “Happy Fathers’ Day to me.

He also named his children and stepchildren – ten in all. 

“Nkunzi | Zulu | Afrika | Shaka | Nkanyezi | Nyanga | Moya. Shoutout to my three step-children: Pistol, Zaza & PJ.”

Last month, Penuel backtracked on his Mother’s Day message with a post seemingly shading two of his baby mamas.

In an IG Story, he shared:  “I’m ready to pick up the fight again for access to my son, Zulu… as well as ensure that Shaka and Kulxa can visit me comfortably during school holidays.

He continued: “Gonna be going up and down to courts for the benefit of my children. Please wish me luck.

“I’d prefer if our families could sit and resolve these things without courts. Sadly, some mothers make life unnecessarily difficult and expensive”.

In an Instagram post just days before, Penuel claimed that Zulu’s mother had prohibited him from visiting his son.

He shared: “I may not see you because your mom denies me access… but I constantly love you. I’ll keep providing where I can. I hope you’re developing nicely, and I hope you’ll grow up soon so we can reunite”.

When one follower asked him if he had gone to Children’s Court, Penuel responded, ” I have done that over four years in three different jurisdictions. With no luck.”

He added that he had “exhausted” all the resources available to him “and failed.”

He added that the situation between him and his baby mama had become hostile.

“The cops have twice refused to arrest her, even with two court orders. I’d just like my side to be told and for my son to know why I’m not with him.”


Meanwhile, Penuel Mlotshwa has also offered advice to any men who are facing challenges with access to their children.

He said in a video post: “Please remain strong and healthy. Try your best not to overthink and lose your mind.

“Exercise, eat healthy food, and be around people who love you.”

Penuel also encouraged single dads to approach the courts for a parenting plan where they can seek access to their children. He also urged men to get therapy for any mental health issues.
