Amapiano star Lady Du is working on a new single.
The ‘uZuma Yi Star’hitmaker took to Instagram to share the song which talks about the pain she has been feeling.
In the song, she asks God to make it rain while she performs so people don’t see her tears.
According to media reports, the song is dedicated to her late friends, Mpura and Killer Kau, who died in a car accident earlier this year.
Talking about the new song, Lady Du wrote: “Ay I cried like a baby.”
Earlier this year, the star opened up about suffering from depression and feeling suicidal.
“I’ve been through soooo much in my life, I’ve been depressed, suicidal, I survived all that, today as I lie in my bed crying I feel a pain that takes me to a dark place. I feel numb, weak, the toxic environment I’m entering in is not good for my heart. I’m crying for my friends, I have to deal with toxic people, still have to smile and act brave. People telling me to ignore everything, how?? All I know is writing songs and championing God, I pray a lot, I fast, I meditate but I haven’t even done it. Because telling people to pray now has become something else. I will be honest, I am broken, I am in pieces, If this is the price we pay to be In show biz, y’all can close my curtains. 🙏🙏🙏 God knows my heart. I love hard, I ask all my friends to pray all the time. Today I ask God to clean our hearts,” she wrote on Instagram.
Cassper Nyovest has described the new song as “fire”.
