The daughter of Somizi Mhlongo and actress Palesa Madisakwane has opened up about what it is like to have celebrity parents. Bahumi Mhlongo says that from a young age she knew her parents were famous.
“I grew up in a family that was always in the spotlight, everywhere I was with my mom or dad there were cameras around or fans wanting to catch a glimpse of us or wanting to say ‘hello’
Despite being treated to lavish gifts from her father, such as the brand-new car he bought her for her 21st birthday.
Bahumi says her parents wanted her to make her own way in life.
I understood when they told me the focus isn’t on me. She is blessed and lucky to have such a caring and loving daddy, we all know Somizi right!
They wanted me to go to school and get an education.
