Khaya Dlanga on how a young Doja Cat put out feelers in search for father Dumisani Dlamini

Media personality and author Khaya Dlanga has shared how he spoke to a young Doja Cat when she was desperately looking for her father, actor Dumisani Dlamini.


In an Instagram video he shared on Wednesday, Khaya said the American singer, who was 14 at the time, contacted him using her real name Amala Dlamini after watching one of his YouTube videos and realising that he was South African.


“She sent me an email saying she was looking for her dad. My heart broke, and I wanted to see if there was anything I could do. I put her story on my blog. I didn’t know who he (Dumisani) was until I Googled and recognised him.


“I called a cousin of mine, who was a well-known actor, to ask him if he knew him [Dumisani] and if he could give him Doja Cat’s email and my contact details, and he said he made contact with him. That was the last I heard of anything.”


He felt the need to explain after a fan account shared a video showing that the star had reached out to Dlanga in a past effort to build a relationship with her famous father.


The pop artist and Grammy award winner recently accused her father of being a “deadbeat” father in a social media post.


“Dad, let me know when/if you need me to re-up your makeup cabinet cuz you a bitch [sic],” she wrote on Instagram.


In another comment, where she tagged Dlamini’s official Instagram account, the musician said: “I got Urban Decay, I got Pat McGrath Labs, I got Fenty, I got Scott Barnes. Let me know. I got your back, sis.”


In a 2019 interview with Leah Henry and DJ Quicksilva, Doja said she had never met Dlamini, despite his occasional comments on her social media.


“I’ve never met him, and he’s on Instagram, and he comments on my pictures sometimes, maybe not anymore, but he did a few times, like months ago,” the musician said.


In an interview on Metro FM, Dlamini claimed that Doja Cat’s management team had blocked him from contacting his daughter.


“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.”
