Watch! Lady Du’s Emotional ‘Umbesenzi Wethu’ Performance At Mpura’s Funeral Service

Watch! Lady Du’s Emotional ‘Umbesenzi Wethu’ Performance At Mpura’s Funeral Service. Amapiano tar Mpura who succumbed to a fatal car crash on the 7th of August, was laid to his final resting place on the 17th of August. Friends and fans have paid tribute to the star, Mpura’s close friend Robot Boii on the other hand was the programme director.

Emotional close friend and industry mate Lady Du shared memories and experiences about her time in the studio with Mpura, and how he encouraged her to deal with her emotions through music when she is at her lowest. She mentioned that Mpura is the one who encouraged her to sing even when she didn’t believe in her vocals.

Addressing Mpura’s mother, Lady Du reassured her that her son has left a lasting legacy in music. “The first day when Mpura was in the studio he wrote his song Impilo Yase Sandton. If you guys listen to that song, that is his life story. That is exactly what his mom went through. “And mama I will tell you one thing: your son chose a career that is going to leave a legacy for you. He is going to still be alive in music. Can we celebrate Mpura? Mpura is one person who gave me an opportunity to work in the studio. At that time, I wasn’t in a good space. I told Mpura I can’t sing … And Mpura said to me: ‘Whatever you are feeling, you should feel through it in the song.”

The hitmaker’s friends and family spoke fondly about his youthful nature, successful career in the music and fashion industries, noting his love and flair for fashion with his own brand Mpura Designs. However, for Mpura’s fans watching the ceremony from far, it was Lady Du’s brief rendition of Umsebenzi Wethu that left many in their feels.
