Lady Du is from Vosloorus. She is the granddaughter of Alias, the owner of the first nightclub in Vosloorus, daughter of DJ Choc and niece of YFM’s DJ Zan-D.
Andile Mxakaza and Lady Du got engaged in August 2020, 3 months into the relationship.
After high school, Lady Du received a bursary from Carnival City to study Somatology in London. She spent a year travelling 108 countries as a cosmetologist and skin therapist on a cruise ship.
She wrote the song Dakiwe in August 2019 when she was struggling financially and was just not in a good space. Lady Du said despite writing the song Dakiwe she does not drink alcohol. She said she wrote the song to be about alcohol but it is about more than that.
Her song Zuma Yi Star was not intended to come out at the time South Africa was going through the looting and protests around Jacob Zuma’s arrest.
She wrote about Zuma after a video of him dancing with his family in Nkandla surfaced in May 2021.
