Doja Cat’s Father Congratulates Her On Grammy Win Despite Reported Estrangement

Doja Cat won a Grammy and her Dad Dumisani Dlamini took to Instagram to thank everyone who supported his daughter. 

In a now deleted tweet, he wrote:

“Just wanted to thank everyone who supported my child Zandile God bless you all,” he wrote in an Instagram post.

The acknowledgment of the win is significant considering what the rapper has said about her relationship with Dlamini in the past. In a clip floating around social media from 2019, Doja Cat met Whoopi Goldberg, who worked with Dlamini, and said that she never met her father. 

“I’m just thinking about my dad ’cause he was in Sarafina! so seeing you and meeting you is like the craziest thing,” she told Goldberg. While The View co-host lauded her father and said he’s a “good man,” the rapper said, “I didn’t get to meet him but you did.” 

Dlamini was a cast member of the 1992 musical Sarafina. He reportedly moved back to South Africa to pursue his career when Doja was a baby. But he’s said that he’s attempted to reach out.

“I have been looking for my daughter as well,” he told Metro FM. “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.”

“She got hold of me. We spoke. We connected,” he added. “Now, at this time when she is there and on top, she has to grab the whole world[‘s attention], especially in SA because she is a South African and her daddy is here. It’s a made-up thing.”
