Lady Du Reveals The Number Of Songs She Has Recorded And How Long It Takes Her To Write A Song. Dudu Ngwenya aka Lady Du as fondly known by her fans, has been working on her music career since the age of 9 years old, and it was only in 2020 that she received her big break. Her singles Dakiwe and Catalia are some of the most popular songs in the Amapiano scene and she features in Umsebenzi Wethu by Busta 929, Mpura, Mr JazziQ, Reece Madlisa, and Zuma.
Lady Du revealed that she has recorded over 150 songs including international features. With that said, she also said it only takes her about 5 minutes to write a song. “I have recorded over 150 songs this includes international features I’m a song writer, I have songs playing in my head that I write in my diary everyday It takes me 5 mins to write a song, ask any producer I’ve worked with I have to worker harder than people that buy songs,” she wrote.
She is the daughter of veteran R n B DJ Choc, and her uncle is DJ Zan D, meaning music runs in her blood. Her father taught her how to DJ before she could solve complicated Maths equations. At 9, she won her first DJing competition which was to set the pace for what was to come.
Born and raised in Vosloorus, Gauteng, Lady Du has always been sure about the path she wanted to take. “I have always wanted to be a musician. I was involved in singing, DJing, and dance from a young age and it’s all I dreamt about all my life,” Lady Du said.
But like any protective parent, her dad wanted her to get an education so she could have something to fall back on. However, after years of trying to break into the music industry, she received a call from Tumelo “Mr JassiQ” Manyoni who introduced her to Amapiano music. She made the popular singles Dabula and Superstar.
