Lady Du Reacts To De Mthuda Calling Her The ‘Queen Of Amapiano’. With a career dating back to the early 2000s, singer, rapper and DJ Lady Du found international success after refining her sound to become a leading figure in amapiano, which exploded as a worldwide phenomenon at the dawn of the 2020s. Hailing from a musical family (which includes her father, DJ Choc, and uncle, DJ Zan D), Lady Du naturally gravitated toward DJing as a child, and went on to win national competitions. Though she was initially known for house music, Lady Du now works alongside some of the biggest names in amapiano (including DJ Maphorisa and Kabza De Small) and has worked on hits like “Umsebenzi Wethu” alongside Busta 929, Mpura, Reece Madlisa, Mr JazziQ and Zuma.

High talented disc jockey De Mthuda has decided to show Lady Du love, calling her the queen of amapiano for her contribution towards the genre. He mentioned that the star has done a lot for the music industry, blessing them with collaborations every week, proving that she is deserving to be the queen of the genre. Reacting to the post De Mthuda shared on Facebook, Lady Du was emotional to learn that such a respected and recognised producer sees her that way. Check it out:

Lady Du’s musical journey speaks to her resilience, and her success can rightfully be attributed to her perseverance. On “Superstar”, Lady Du sings about aspiring to superstardom, even going as far as mentioning some South African celebrities that she looks up to! Today, her name is listed among the very stars she once mentioned on the track.

The collective success of the tracks she’s featured on have catapulted her to household status, not only in South Africa but abroad too, as the world continues to check for amapiano. Earlier in the year, she appeared in a New York Times Square billboard as part of Spotify’s African Heat campaign, a feat only a few South African artists have achieved.
