ZAlebs reported that Gigi talked about her life on the latest episode of Pap Culture, and she shared a lot.

"I grew up in the south side of Johannesburg in a township called Soweto where many great minds were made and cultivated.
I grew up in a very ‘in blank term’ dysfunctional home, both my parents are still alive but they are not together anymore."

Briefly.co.za learnt that hip-hop became an outlet for Gigi as she was dealing with an abusive parental home.

"Hip-hop was just an outlet for me with everything that I was dealing with at the time – my parent’s very abusive home. Love my dad to bits and I still look after him. We (are) still kinda rekindling our relationship.
My mom who was practically a single parent, she’s a nurse she worked tirelessly to give me the opportunity that I have now.”
