South African songstress as Lady Du Lady Du hits back at tweeps putting her on blast.
In the wake of the news of Sama-nominated artist DJ Dimplez’s sudden passing, Lady Du topped the Twitter trends on Sunday when she was put on blast and accused of announcing celeb deaths prematurely.
While people mourn differently especially on the TL, tweeps seemed intolerant towards amapiano songstress Lady Du, who they lambasted for sharing a tribute to DJ Dimplez before the Mooi family released a statement to confirm the DJ’s death.
Taking to Twitter she was not impressed by the tweets and said: “Y’all are sick I tell you — sick!”
Y’all are sick I tell you sick!!!!!!!

“Y’all wanna be disrespectful and think people won’t go there with you. I’ve said it countless times. I am not the one. I don’t bother anyone. Don’t come for me”
Hip-hop DJ Dimplez’s family confirmed he passed away March 6, from a brain haemorrhage.
