But with God, we will move from this, and I’ll be able to share my grief.”
In the past, Lady Du has spoken candidly about her struggle with mental illness and her big break in the music business.
“In 2020 I was about to give up on life, even attempted to take my life due to feeling like I had lost myself,” she shared. “I had nothing, lost all my friends, money, and cars. I had absolutely nothing at all! I then went to the studio; I had tried every single genre for 15 years. Boity hired me as her songwriter and vocal coach, after that episode things started changing, I had hope.” She says that is where people started to see her vocal abilities and she then worked with Amapiano DJ, MrJazziQ, who helped her deal with the stress in her life. “We recorded Superstar. It worked, then when we recorded Msebenzi Wethu but I was still unhappy and depressed,” she said.
“I chose not to sing that song but literally cry my heart out, asking God when he will pull through for me. Nobody really knew how deep it was. I carried on, so Dakiwe is not a song about being drunk it’s actually a song about depression, being so high on suicidal thoughts that you want your parents to come to see you and rescue you.”
