She social media users have speculated that she could be dating rapper Big Zulu after she posted an image of them looking cozy together. Despite the speculation, neither of them has said anything about being an item.

A couple of days ago Gigi opened up about losing 15kgs in the space of 5 months. She said her weight loss journey has been great.

“My weight loss journey has been great. I lost 15kh within the space of 5 months. Nowhere near easy. I will tell you it’s true though. Diet, physical activity, and some cosmetic assists! I’m so so happy! Now we tone,” she tweeted.Gigi Lamayne

Back in 2021 Gigi exclusively spoke to us about the state of South African Hip Hop at the time. She vented about the lack of good music.

“If you want to be happy in this industry just follow your rules. Listen to your fans and incorporate what you want to incorporate. Sadly, we live in a time when you don’t even hear the good music anymore because it’s been overshadowed by this influx of wannabe American rappers. If you want to be respected in Hip Hop now, you have to be the one who mimics better,” she shared in a tweet.Gigi Lamayne

We reached out to her to explore what her tweet really meant. “It comes with feeling that the industry is quite connection based. We’re superficial in the sense that we’re trying so hard to mimic American culture that we have forgotten how beautiful we are.”

She finds inspiration from the likes of Sho Madjozi and Focalistic.

“I find it a Sho Madjozi and a Focalistic are the epitome of what South African Hip Hop should look like in terms of their sound. They both rap in their language but most of all, they incorporate the production and the sound into what I feel the standard should be.”

Gigi also addressed the corruption that is in the music industry.

“I’m very angry at the South African industry because we find that talent is not the first thing being pushed now. Like I said, its connection based – who knows who and who is closing doors on who. It’s a very superficial space to be in until you become Indie and have your own team and then collaborate with a major label.”
