American Rapper Doja Cat, who’s real name is Zandile Dlamini, has issued a public apology because of the backlash she’s been receiving over being “racially insensitive ” and this is due to music and racial slurs she made when she was younger.
The South African born star was in hot water after the people of the internet dug up an old video of her using the N-word and for music that was deemed “racially insensitive”, yey the internet truly never forgets aibo!
The female rapper than apologised for her old songs and for participating in chat room sites but denied being involved in any racial conversations.
“I’ve used public chat rooms to socialise since I was a child. I shouldn’t have been on some of those chat room sites, but I personally have never been involved in any racist conversations. I’m sorry to everyone I offended.
“As for the old song that’s resurfaced, it was in no way tied to anything outside of my own personal experience. It was written in response to people who often used that term to hurt me. I made an attempt to flip its meaning, but recognise that it was a bad decision to use the term in my music.”
Doja, who happens to be Yizo Yizo star Dumisani Dlamini’s Daughter, reassured her fans that’s she was a proudly South African woman.
“I’m a black woman. Half of my family is black from South Africa and I’ve very proud of where I come from.” She said.
The whole drama comes from Doja earning her fist Billboard number 1 record with the legendary Nicki Minaj, talk about levels!
The rapper has previously been in the hot seat door homophobic slurs used on Twitter which she later apologised for after she saw the negative impact her words had.
Miss Dlamini then apologied and made sure her fans knew she understood how serious that matter is.
“I understand my influence and impact and I’m taking this all very seriously. I love you all and I’m sorry for upsetting or hurting any of you,” she said.
