Controversial media personality, Sizwe Dhlomo, has ruffled some feathers on Twitter today, 30 October 2020, after he unintentionally made a bad joke, which a fan categorised as a “dad joke”. Taking the insult like a jump, the radio host explained that he has a catalogue of Dad jokes at his disposal, and he wasn’t afraid to pull them out at any given moment.

The conversation then turned to Tweeps complimenting him by saying that they could see him being a good father one day and that seeing as though he will soon be 40-years-old, he should probably be thinking about starting a family. One follower went as far as questioning him about his timeline, and claimed that his biological clock was ticking. Sizwe responded with, “Personally, I’m alright with that. What you may want to ask yourself though, is why you’re so concerned with matters of my nuts.”
Sizwe being Sizwe, didn’t leave it there, he went on to express his views on having children, and bluntly stated that there was no point in having kids. He tweeted, “If we’re being honest, there’s no good reason to have kid. I’m not saying it’s wrong or shouldn’t be done, kodwa ayikho i-need. Waar!”. Fans tried him to persuade him to think differently, and felt that if he had a child, perhaps his views would change.
The start went on to clarify that although he might have kids in the future, he stands by his opinion which is… there is no good reason. He said, “Nobody said they don’t bring joy to your life & grow you as a person. My sister has twins for example & I love them dearly, I’m so glad she had them. I also will have kids. I’m just saying there’s no good reason though. I will, after I get married. I was just saying if we were to justify it logically, kuyabheda.”
The comments began escalating quickly, with many accusing him of being a disappointment to his fans, as his tweets suggested the people should merely not have children. Some suggested that knowing Sizwe, he would soon tell his followers to sue their parents for having them, as they didn’t ask to be born. He then posed a question, “Well, since you brought that up... If you were asked before being born if you wanted to come here & they outlined everything you’d face as well as the circumstances you’d be born under. How would you have answered?”.
Suffice to say, Sizwe is sticking to his guns on this one, and time will tell if future Daddy Sizwe will ever change his mind.
