WATCH: Doja Cat brings up absent dad Dumisani Dlamini with Whoopi Goldberg
Doja Cat bumped into Whoopi Goldberg backstage when she performed on the "Late Night with Seth Meyers" where she brought up her absentee father.
During the video clip making the rounds on Twitter, the "Say So" hitmaker shared with Whoopi that her father, "Yizo Yizo" star Dumisani Dlamini, starred with "The View" moderator in "Sarafina!".
Whoopi goes on to ask his name and when the "Boss B*tch" rapper replies, it seemingly jogs the EGOT holder's memory as she continues to stare at Doja.
However, what caused a stir on online was when the "Juicy" hitmaker mentioned that Whoopi had met him while she has never met him in real life.
Whoopi follows this up by saying that Dumisani is a "good man" which also left many users confused since Doja's previous statement made the same claim of never meeting him and said that she would only see his comments on her Instagram page.
Tweeps shared their thoughts about the video with many users empathizing with Doja having an absent father.
Let this be a lesson to deadbeat Dads that your child can be an extension of you and reach levels and dreams you never could imagine reaching. If you choose to not be there, you wont celebrate with them, but will just be bitter.— Hanesengani (@Hanesengani) April 22, 2020
