Gigi Lamayne has opened up about her feelings about leaving her previous record label, saying she can definitely relate to what Mzansi rapper, Emtee is going through.
Mzansi singer, Gigi Lamayne has joined the social media calls for Emtee to leave his record label. She reflected on her own struggles after cutting ties with her previous record label.
It’s been long coming that rapper Emtee would join a list of celebs who have left Ambitiouz Entertainment over the years. And this Monday fans called for him to make the move for him to become an independent artist. Briefly.co.za reported that fans had created a hashtag and tweeted, #FreeEmtee.
Fans listed their concerns about Emtee’s future under the hashtag, making it a trending subject on Twitter over the last two days.
Another singer, Gigi Lamayne weighed in on the subject and shared her thoughts and experiences with her previous record label.
Gigi who was also signed to Ambitiouz Entertainment, left the label last December. She thanked the label for their mentorship in a statement afterwards, but on Monday night, revealed to a follower on Twitter that she had lost everything after becoming an independent artist.
“I lost everything. Almost lost my life. Oxygen still in my lungs. I’ll be just fine. Leaving an unhealthy situation will always separate the cowards from the Kings. Pick a box.” Wrote Lamayne.
She added that at the time of her departure, she was “at breaking point” and “super broke”.
“I was at breaking point. Almost lost my life. Super broke. Am I not learning to love ad trust my ability?”
Lamayne said that Emtee’s fans would be the key in any decision and that he will survive though.
“Your supporters are the key in this. Leave! God’s promise is that you will survive!”
But according to TshisaLive, Emtee had not responded to the tweets, calls from their publication and both he and the record label were not available for comment.
A month ago, Briefly.co.za reported that it had been five months since Gigi Lamayne was admitted into hospital for depression. She has expressed some of the emotions she experienced in the days and hours leading up to her breakdown.
It was in November last year that Gigi tweeted her birth date and then added in her death date. This got her fans fearing the worst for her. This South African rapper has on a previous occasion, shared her struggles with depression and again tweeted “The end”.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Gigi discussed with DJ Fresh from Metro FM, where she said that she had become tired of the competition with others and just the fact that she was always trying to please everyone, which lead to her hospitalisation.
