This past Friday Matt Tsolo from the Afternoon Shutdown had the ground breaking South African artist and business woman Gigi Lamayne in studio for a chat.

Lamayne who was in the City to work on some more cool things played Celebrity Real or Rubbish with Matt and even spoke about what she will be doing in Amsterdam in a few weeks.

The interview started on a great note which almost saw Lamayne in tears.

“That is the best intro I have had in all my little bitty career”’ said Lamanye after Matt gave a moving introduction of her.

Gigi Lamayne who made history in May this year for being the first lady in Hip-Hop to pull a one woman show called the #GigiGangShow says it only started with a Tweet.

“I just tweeted that I’m gonna do this show, and from my previous record label that’s something I always wanted to do, but I think nobody really believed that a female artist could pull it off.”

This year the artist was part of the selected few which performed at the Inauguration of President Cyril Ramaphosa and she said it a tweet it was part of her highlights for the year!
