The video was posted by @ThisIsColbert with the caption:

"If it wasn't for the late Mbongeni Ngema, we wouldn't have Doja Cat in this world. RIP, old man, one time."

Netizens react to Dlamini's revelation

Mzansi could not look past the drama with Dumisani and his daughter, Doja Cat. However, judging by how he told the story, many seem to think that if he had not gone to America, then Doja Cat probably would not have been born.

"If only that sphandla he wore would be worn by Doja Cat."

@PostiveImpact89 stated:

"He is a deadbeat father."

@MboMahocs added:

"If only he'd been more present in Doja's life. Maybe they were miles apart, but ke, a letter, a phone call, a birthday card, something nyana. It would have been an amazing tell-tale today. I hope she forgives him someday; it doesn't change anything."
