Doja is not a cat, does not say meow.
Forget Nikki Minaj. Move over, Cardi B. Doja Cat (born Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini on Oct. 21, 1995), is the new top American female rapper, singer, and songwriter.

She first rose to prominence with the release of the highly sexualized music video for her song "Mooo!" ("B*tch I'm a [Holy] Cow"), which went viral in 2018.

She subsequently became known for creating music videos and songs that achieve popularity on social media apps like TikTok.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Doja Cat began making and releasing music on SoundCloud when she was a teenager. She signed a joint record deal with RCA Records and Kemosabe Records at the age of 17 and subsequently released her debut extended play, Purrr!, in 2014.

(Fader) What was it like being a Hindu kid in the ashram? It was "constricting" but cool, too, singing.

She released her debut studio album, Amala, in 2018, followed by a deluxe repackage in 2019, which included the singles "Tia Tamera" and "Juicy." Her second studio album, Hot Pink (2019), reached the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 and contains the number one single "Say So."

Amala Ratna was born into an artistic family in Tarzana, Los Angeles. Her mother, Deborah Elizabeth Sawyer, is a Jewish-American painter and her father, Dumisani Dlamini, is a Zulu from South Africa, an actor, composer, and film producer best known for Sarafina!

Doja Cat has said her father was absent from her childhood and that she has never met him. She told The Fader she did not "hold grudges against him or anything in any way, but obviously it’s a little weird" that he commented on her Instagram posts about how proud he was. Her father has denied these statements, saying he has a "healthy" relationship with his daughter.

Following her birth, she and her mother immediately moved to the Bronx, New York, where they lived for five years. She returned to Oak Park, California with her single mother, where she experienced a "sporty childhood," often skating and visiting Malibu for surf camps.

Life in the Hindu ashram
She returned to Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles at the age of 11 and a half, where she lived in an ashram and practiced Hinduism for four years.

During this time she also took part in breakdancing classes, further joining a competitive troupe. She would frequently skip school to participate in chatrooms. She told Paper that she had a near-"religious" obsession with the unnamed chat room, and would still participate in it as of December 2019. More
