DJ Carly O’s father, Tony Oosthuizen commented,

Tony Oosthuizen I am so sorry my girl, Carly Bernadette Oosthuizen, our son Llewellyn Naidoo, and my darling wife Mary Papayya, this is all my fault. Lee, I always told Carly that Hinduism is the most embracing and inclusive religion on the planet. I really did not know that you can’t be Hindu if you were not born into it or have a white father. I need to go and look up my university professor and question what he taught me in Religious Studies.
