Gigi Lamayne’s new single Jungle Fever is taking off


gigiFour-time South African Hip Hop Award winner, Gigi Lamayne’s new single, Jungle Fever, debuted at the number one position on both the YFM #Bombchart and the #YUrbanTop40 chart over the weekend.

Lamayne’s Jungle Fever follows her successful debut single Ice Cream and Ice Cream Remix featuring Khuli Chana. With Jungle Fever, Gigi Lamayne contradicts the notion of Africa being a jungle by portraying African music as the epitome of all things creative.

Jungle Fever was an attempt at finding a middle ground to what I love most about music: dance, lyricism and Africanism. I wanted this to be a patriotic song for all Africans alike, no matter their walk of life. I feel as though this is the perfect follow-up to Ice Cream as I wanted to show people how artistically eccentric I can be, hence Jungle Fever was born,” she says.

Jungle Fever is currently on high rotation at YFM. It debuted on The Morning Fix on Metro FM last week with Mo Flava and is on rotation on stations such as Tshwane FM, Tru FM, Makhado FM, Radio Atlantis and YaRona FM in Botswana.
