Four-time South African Hip Hop Award winner and University of Witwatersrand (WITS) Dean’s list student, Gigi Lamayne, had her new single, Jungle Fever, debut at the #1 position on both the YFM #Bombchart and the #YUrbanTop40 chart over the weekend. Gigi Lamayne’s Jungle Fever follows her 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 music and all things creative. Gigi Lamayne brings the heat of the African spirit with this single.
“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!” expresses Gigi Lamayne. 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 just to mention a few.
