Gigi LaMayne freestyles in honour of femininity


liFour time South African Hip Hop Award winner, Gigi LaMayne, has been releasing video freestyles every Friday in August to commemorate Women’s Month.

In celebrating women, LaMayne has chosen to express the various sides to her, as she gives tribute to women in history who have inspired new politics, music and entertainment.

LaMayne has named her weekly video freestyle series #IronLady. Iron Lady is a nickname that has frequently been used to describe female heads of state. The term describes a “strong willed” woman and Gigi Lamayne has used this interpretation to embody herself.

The public reception to LaMayne’s freestyles has been phenomenal with the latest freestyle #MiriamMakeba currently going viral on social media. As a result, LaMayne’s freestyles have now been picked up by Channel O and are on high rotation for the next week on the channel. YFM have also picked up the freestyles and are airing the audio clips weekly on Linda Mbuso’s Saturday afternoon show.

LaMayne has already released her first two video freestyles on her Facebook fan page. The next video freestyle, titled #Fire, is set to be released on Friday, 21 August.
