Bahumi Madisakwane, daughter of the famous local entertainer, Somizi, saw the ugly side of the entertainment world when she got a lot of negative attention after scoring a role in the upcoming biopic, The Lebo Mathosa Story.

Bahumi will play the role of Lebo in her younger years and many people spoke out against this, saying the young woman only got the role because she's related to Somizi.

The proud dad quickly made sure to encourage his daughter and told her to forget about the haters.

Somizi told Bahumi that she must take every opportunity and he loves her and will always be there for her.
