In April 2020 during the COVID pandemic when things were going south for everyone, Lady Du and Andile found each other again and rekindled their love.
In an Instagram post, Lady Du later revealed that Andile had returned to her life at a time when she was going through the darkest time of her life. She had been discharged from the hospital and was still dealing with severe depression. Fortunately, the Isibaya actor was patient with her and helped her fight through and overcome the challenging period of her life. In her own words, Lady Du said that “it was like God had brought him straight from heaven.”
Things looked different, in a good way the second time around and the couple kept proving that they were serious about their relationship and showed all signs of spending the rest of their lives together.
