Bahumi’s surname sparks debate online

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.

My heart aches even more because genuinely the late Mary Twala is probably the only person Bahumi needed to make her feel confident in her decision to change her surname and now she’s not here. pic.twitter.com/o6v5FbOSot

Twitter users were divided on the matter. Some thought that Somizi should have paid damages for Bahumi but she needs to accept that culture is important. So, she cannot just change her surname.

If Somizi was not busy running around with friends & forgetting about his child, he would’ve fixed the surname thing long time ago. Now it’s like Bahumi is forcing him to do the right thing, like he was forced with Umemulo. He doesn’t even seem to be interested #LTDWSOMIZI

Bahumi is supposed to be getting the picture now. I mean, everyone is saying the same thing when it comes to the surname issue. All she has to do is listen. #LTDWSOMIZI

I do but sometimes the things he does are not good. Bahumi is in her late 20s, she’s still crying for Somizi’s surname. Somizi has always had money and he should’ve done the right thing long time ago

While other Tweeps thought she should be allowed to change her surname.

At some point Palesa will have to accept that Bahumi wishes to carry her dad’s surname. As painful as it must be as the person who raised Bahumi ,it’s her wish to go as a Mhlongo #LTDWSOMIZI

Kanti what the big deal with Bahumi wanting to change her surname? Everyone already knows who her father is, her maternal family has accepted it. If the issue is formalities than surely that can be resolved? I just don’t understand why they’re fighting her on this #LTDWSOMIZI
