Rapper, Doja Cat, was born in California in 1995. The colourful artist who started her career in 2013 has been described as “interesting”, “eclectic” and “trippy”. Her quirky music is not the only interesting thing that she has got going for her; Doja is also half Zulu.
Amala Zandile Dlamini is the daughter of actor, composer and producer; Dumisani Dlamini. You may remember Dumisani from his roles as Crocodile in Sarafina!, Chester in Yizo Yizo and, most recently, Mbodla in Isibaya. The veteran actor stayed in the US after the Sarafina! Tour wrapped up and started a family. He speaks very fondly of his daughter.
“Beautiful girl (who goes by) the name Doja Cat, she’s singing with Nicki Minaj. If you google you will see, it’s D. O. J. A. C. A. T, she’s one of the best singers now in America. That’s my daughter,”, he told TshisaLIVE in an exclusive interview
