Social media users are divided on media personality Somizi Mhlongo’s daughter wanting to change her surname after the latest episode of his reality series aired on Showmax on Wednesday 18 May.
Somizi Mhlongo’s daughter Bahumi wanted to take on his surname but her mother, actress Palesa Madisakwane, told her that there are cultural things that need to take place first. Palesa also brought up the surname change to her father at a birthday dinner. Bahumi did not like her mom’s timing but her grandfather did let her know how he felt. He explained that her father first needs to do the right things in order for her to take his surname. This comes after Palesa revealed that Somizi never paid damages when Palesa was born. “Dad, what do you think of Bahumi changing her surname? Her being a Mhlongo” asked Palesa.
“Bahumi is born from a family rich in tradition, rich in culture. Her father needs to do the right things. He knows what culture dictates,” he said.
“If Bahumi goes and does this as she desires, it will baffle her later on. And when it does, she will be ashamed to come back,” he continued. Bahumi also visited her grandmother’s grave where she broke down in tears.
