Kandi Burruss has long been proud of the fact that her mother pretty much raised her alone after her father bailed — and she has done the same with her daughter, Riley — but next week, we will get to meet her father, Titus, on camera for the first time!

Kandi calls on her dad (who we believe is a pastor or some sort of religious leader in the Atlanta area) when she begins to record her gospel record with legendary artist Marvin Sapp, as seen in the sneak peek video below.

We don’t know much about Papa Burruss, but earlier this year, Kandi shared a photo of herself with her dad and younger sister, who were on hand to support our girl at a party for Bedroom Kandi.

While we’re excited that Kandi has reconnected with her pops, we can’t help but wonder if drama is afoot — this is The Real Housewives of Atlanta, after all! Do you think Kandi’s dad is here to stay? Vote below!
