Gigi Lamayne who has bagged several awards since her arrival in the industry said her focus is now on passing the reigns to upcoming artists. She added:

"The award is one that I am extremely competitive about... there are some new and amazing young girls coming into the industry and despite my win, I think we are all winners."

The hitmaker also noted that she wishes to see male and female rappers competing against each other as it would make the competition stiff.

"I can't wait for a time where males and females are pitted against each other in one category, that way we can see who’s got more skill and talent outside their gender."
