Lady Du Reacts To Her Hit Single ‘Catalia’ Major Milestone
Lady Du Reacts To Her Hit Single ‘Catalia’ Major Milestone. Dudu Ngwenya, Lady Du as she is 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.
One of her biggest amapiano tracks ‘Catalia’ with Junior De Rocka, featuring Mr JazziQ and Mellow and Sleazy. The star took to social media to celebrate her recent achievement. He hit single ‘Catalia’ has just reached a platinum status with an overall of over 2.3 million.
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.
Just when she was ready to quit again, she received a call from Tumelo “Mr JassiQ” Manyoni who introduced her to Amapiano music. She made the singles Dabula and Superstar. “I’ve been told I can’t sing, I’m boring and I’m too old. But Mr JazziQ believed in me and that motivated me to make more music.”
Last year she released the singles Dakiwe with DBN Gogo, Seekay, and Busta 929 as well as the song Catalia with Junior De Rocka, Mr JazziQ, Sleazy and Mellow. “Those two songs put me on the Spotify billboard in New York, but the 20 years of hard labour and not giving up is what got me here,” she said.
