Lady Du Claims She Is The Highest Streamed Female Amapiano Artist:
Lady Du is currently one of the hottest voices in amapiano. Born into a family of musicians, her father DJ Choc and uncle DJ Zan D are reputable deejays and producers. Lady Du, real name Dudu Ngwenya, first learned how to play at the tender age of nine. Since then and during her early adult life, she had been trying to get a successful break into the music industry.
Though Lady Du said she does not care about the titles she gets along the way while working towards becoming an international amapiano star, it is undeniable she’s the biggest female artist dominating the genre.“I wouldn’t dub myself as the queen of amapiano. I’ve never done this for a title, but I appreciate it when people call me all of that because it’s how they view me. I was the first female to have the highest streams on amapiano and be on 100 songs at a time.“When you look at the streams on the songs, most of them are platinum, I’m not on a piano song that is not platinum. I’m the highest-streamed female in amapiano.”
Though she made songs with renowned producers such as DJ Clock, DJ Mshega and DJ Maphorisa (back when he still did gqom) in 2013, 2014 and 2018 respectively, her breakthrough only came under a year ago through the track “Superstar”, alongside revered amapiano deejay and producer Mr JazziQ.
Today, Lady Du has a long list of renowned African artists including Davido, Burna Boy, and Niniola looking to collaborate with her, which Lady Du hopes will catapult her brand to get the attention of other international stars.“I’m doing international features right now which will take me to another level. I think I’m going to work with every international artist that is out there. All the African popular artists are already on lock and in conversation. They are the ones approaching me.“People overseas treat me totally different from how people treat me this side [SA] I have a lot of respect internationally. I do have people who love and appreciate me this side, but it gives me such joy to see other countries actually embracing me.”
