1. Lady Du expresses regret for her comments on Tyla's attire at the Met Gala 2024.

Lady Du has expressed her regret to Tyla and her supporters for her previous criticism of Tyla’s outfit at the Met Gala 2024. In a widely circulated Instagram post, Lady Du had voiced her opinion that Tyla would have made a bigger impact if she had worn an African Print instead of the custom sand outfit created by olivier rousteing.

However, this comment did not sit well with Tyla’s fans, who believed that Lady Du lacked a basic understanding of the Met Gala event, leading to her ignorant statement. In an effort to make amends, Lady Du has issued a statement apologizing to Tyla and her fans. She clarified that she had no intention of causing harm and emphasized that she has always been a devoted fan of the Water hitmaker.

Lady Du’s statement on her Twitter wall read, “Guys, let me apologize. I was unaware of the theme or occasion when I made my comment. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ I am a strong supporter of local brands, and I made my comment without being aware of the context, as you all know I do not attend red carpet events. I am not well-informed about many things. I am simply an ordinary person. If I offended anyone by mentioning maxhosa, I apologize. ❤️❤️🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 Have a great day. 🙌🏼😍😍😍😍😍.. I love Tyla, and you all know I have been supporting her long before ‘Water.’ ❤️❤️❤️ Like every other artist I feature on my wall, Danko 🙏🙏🙏. I only use social media to share my own content, and if I come across something, I will comment, like, or share. I support everyone 🙏.”

Tyla garnered significant attention at the Met Gala 2024 with her sand-molded gown, which symbolized the sands of time. The dress was designed by olivier rousteing.
