Gigi Lamayne has just announced that she will be performing at the upcoming Presidential inauguration
She revealed to All4Women what she hopes this performance will do for young South African girls.
Gigi has been on a hot streak ever since leaving Ambitiouz Records to take full control of her career.
The decision might have seemed hasty at the time, but she has quickly proven just how much of an impact independent artists can make with the right amount of determination. And now, less than a month after making history with South Africa’s first one-woman hip-hop concert, she’s scooped arguably the biggest gig of her career – a performance at President Cyril Ramaphosa’s inauguration this coming Saturday in Pretoria.
Gigi joins an electric line-up that will see musicians such as Judith Sephuma, Reason and Kabomo hitting the stage on the 25th of May
The inauguration and concert will be taking place at the Loftus Versfeld stadium in front of a large crowd while millions more South Africans will be tuning in to watch the day’s proceedings from the comfort of their own homes.
We spoke to Gigi Lamayne between her performances this weekend to ask how she feels about the opportunity to perform at such an historic event
“Ecstatic!” the rapper beamed before we could squeeze in a quick question. We asked what kind of message she hoped to send to young South African girls with this newest opportunity.
She dedicated her massive gig to young South African girls before providing them with some words of wisdom. She told those who look up to her to, “Focus on you. Be selfish enough to understand that YOU make your reality. Keep breathing. Keep smiling. Keep turning those nightmares into dreams and positive premonitions.”
Gigi will now be hard at work on rehearsing for the perfect show on Saturday but if her electric energy at the recently-passed Gigi Gang Show is anything to go by, then Cyril and his presidential audience are in for a treat.
