Lady Du thanks Boity for changing her life
Boity is the only one who can make Lady Du laugh.
The way in which Lady Du’s career blew up is one of the most fascinating stories. She had once spoken about how the late Mpura helped her when nobody had believed in her. But now, she has someone else to thank and it is rapper Boity.
Some people might have missed it but Lady Du got featured in Boity’s reality show Own Your Throne. She was hired by Naakmusiq to be her vocal coach and songwriter and did an amazing job.
She shared a clip from that episode she was featured in and Lady Du did a stellar job and even pushed Boity to the limit. She tried to make Boity sing but the rapper could not as she was destined to be a rapper.
We see Boity struggling a bit but in the end got the hang of it. Lady Du shared that clip and said after that episode, she got calls from various people asking her to join them in the studio. She said although she was already in the path of stardom, that episode alone opened the many doors for her to succeed.

She said there are a few people in the industry who used her skills but never gave her any credit, but she had let them be.
“I’ve been looking for this video today it came as a memory, here are the people that deserve credit for my blow up, people that gave me a platform when no one else believed in me. I’ve been writing songs for a lot of artists, serious hit songs, if I can tell you you’d pass out, but they kept quite, and that’s fine.”
She then mentions how Naak Musiq and Boity as well as her manager Bash Vision changed her life, “@iamnaakmusiq @bashvision @boity hired me as a vocal coach and song writer for Boity. After this episode I had sooo many people call me for song writing, and that’s when people noticed I’m actually talented. Today I’d like to thank you guys for this!!!!!!! It was on this day that my career planted a fruitful seed!!!!!
“I was already on my journey y’all boosted the girl, forever grateful May God bless you guys. This was the toughest year of my life I was going through a lot, I picked myself up and gave my best. I remember calling Naak telling him I was depressed, he helped out,” she added.
Lady Du has won her very first award at the inaugural Amapiano awards and she took home the Best Female Amapiano Artist. She shared a clip of her father dancing with the award at the top of his head, and said it was the best night of her life.
She also showed some love to Boohle who won two awards; Best Amapiano Newcomer and Best Amapiano Female Vocalist. She gave her a huge shout out and said, “I have never been soooo proud of a person in my life. This is God showing you that when you don’t give up he’ll show up. You had such a tough shake month not so long ago but look at God I love you babe. Well deserved.”
