Amapiano star Lady Du announces separation from Andile Mxakaza

South Africa’s rising Amapiano star Duduzile Ngwenya better known as Lady Du has announced her separation from husband and former Isibaya actor Andile Mxakaza.

The Amapiano star revealed that she was ‘attacked’ on numerous occasions by people she didn’t know.

According to Lady Du, they broke up a month ago but kept it under wraps until the gossip wind started blowing.

She wrote, “I am not one for gossip, it bores me. This is from my heart, we did not break up, we followed our hearts and that meant separating before things went south.

“I’ve had numerous attacks from people I didn’t even know, people making me uncomfortable because of culture, people attacking my character, scratching my cars. So I decided to follow my heart and leave my relationship.”

She added, “we also realised we want different things. So we are both happy with the decision and we ask that you kindly respect it. It hasn’t affected any of us. Let it not affect you or make you sad. It’s life. We all need to live honest lives.”

Her ex-finance, Andile also wrote a public apology to her.

He wrote, “I am sorry you never found peace in our relationship, I am proud how you stood your ground and never gave up even when you were attacked by people. I want you to find true happiness and I am happy with the decision you made, you way stronger than you look.”

The pair first dated 12 years ago but for a short period of time before breaking up. They rekindled their romance in April 2020 and after four months of dating, Andile popped the question to which Lady Du said yes.
