Early Life & Education

Lady Du, a native of South Africa, was born on May 17, 1991, in Vosloorus, Gauteng, and spent her formative years in the same town. Growing up in Gauteng exposed her to the local culture, influencing her development into the person she has become.

Her father, DJ Choc, an accomplished R&B disc jockey, played a pivotal role in shaping Lady Du’s musical inclinations. Her family connections include her uncle, DJ Zan-D, and her brother, Thabiso Ngwenya, who serves as an entrepreneur, model, and road manager. Although Lady Du embarked on her musical journey at 9, she faced challenges and struggled to gain recognition in the highly competitive South African music industry.

Lady Du‘s academic journey commenced at a local school in her region, where she completed her primary education alongside her siblings. After graduating high school, she furthered her education at Carnival City in London, focusing on somatology. 


At nine, Lady Du embarked on her singing career when she triumphed in her inaugural DJ competition. Her father’s musical influence encouraged her to carve a niche in the fiercely competitive industry. Despite encountering challenges in Mzansi’s vibrant music scene, Lady Du, fueled by determination, pressed on to pursue her dream and leave an indelible mark.

In 2012, Lady Du embraced an opportunity as a stomatologist and skin therapist in the United Kingdom. However, her unwavering passion for music led her to boldly relocate from the UK to South Africa to dedicate herself entirely to refining her singing skills. This courageous move proved successful, propelling her to establish a reputation as a gifted musician with a steadily growing fan base.

Lady Du briefly withdrew from the music industry in 2016, exploring a managerial role after facing challenges. In 2019, she grappled with personal difficulties, leading to a suicide attempt. However, in 2020, her career experienced a significant turnaround when Mr JazziQ introduced her to Amapiano music. 

Swiftly ascending as one of the prominent female DJs, Lady Du garnered global acclaim within a year of releasing her popular song. Her recognition soared to new heights when her image was prominently featured on a New York Times Square billboard.
