Following the recent passing of hip-hop artist ProKid, Gigi Lamayne has come forward to speak on behalf of his family.
Fellow rapper Gigi is currently dating ProKid’s brother and has shared that the family is doing their best to be strong for one another.
She was with him when they received the news of ProKid’s death and rushed to his mother’s house to be with the rest of the family.
ProKid passed away after suffering from a severe seizure.
Paramedics were called to the scene to assist but unfortunately, there was nothing more that they could do for the musician.
TimesLIVE reports that Gigi is doing what she can to show her support for the family, even though she is in mourning herself. She also went on to say that she can only imagine what his family must be feeling at this very moment, particularly ProKid’s wife and child.
Briefly.co.za learned that his wife, Ayanda is completely devasted by the news while his daughter, who is only three, still hasn’t been able to understand what happened to her father.
His mother is trying to stay positive for the family and is encouraging all to reflect on his life and his music. She says that would be the biggest honour that anyone could pay to his family and his legacy.
Gigi went on to say that the mood in the family’s home has completely changed. When she arrived at the home after hearing the news, she said that it felt very heavy and melancholy. Now friends, neighbours and other celebrities have joined them and now celebrate all he achieved in his life.
The family do have concerns about the funeral arrangements because of the sheer amount of people who have turned up outside their home to grieve with them. The family are trying to do their best to make sure that everyone can join in with the celebration of his life.
ProKid had to fight for his place in the industry because his label and management would try to undermine him, but he persisted.
He also made sure that Gigi didn’t have the same experiences he did.
She mentioned that she wouldn’t have had much of a career without him because he got her, her first real break.
