In a chat with Ebro, Doja, real name Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini, opened up about her relationship, or lack thereof, with her father, where she revealed that she's never met her old man:

"I've never met my dad. He's so good at dancing, he's a goated dancer. There is a video my mom showed me where he performed on Broadway. He has so much ability and incredible talent when it comes to dance.

Ebro then asked Doja whether or not she had been to South Africa:

"I still haven't. I rely on my career to throw me out to places. I don't have pockets of time to travel 'cause I don't like flying, especially long flights like that. I know it means a lot and would mean a lot."
