Gigi Lamayne is one of the few ladies who managed to make a name in the hip-hop music industry. She recently talked about her upbringing and just how she got into the career she chose and now rocks.
Gigi Lamayne is a force to be reckoned with. She set her heart on becoming a female hip-hop musician and she's doing her most.
Gigi is doing amazing and can be proud of her progress as a female in a male-dominated music genre.
She recently opened up about where she grew up, her childhood and why she got into hip-hop music of all things.
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.”
