For our 100th episode and the start of Africa Month we chat to a South African rap powerhouse whose lyrical flexing is world class, a lady who has unapologetically blazed her own trail, preaching empowerment and taking names on whichever stage she steps. 

 

From the moment the country heard her hot, on point rhymes it was very clear that a new kind of hip hop star was born and her career has been equally as interesting to follow as it unfolds.  

 

From her humble hard working roots through to finding her own form of spiritual enlightenment that very often sought to buck the status quo, Gigi Lamayne is blazing a trail that you best don fire protection to keep up with.

As the frontman of FUZIGISH, one of the best ska punk bands South Africa has ever seen, Jay Bones captained a chaotic ship that tore towns and stages apart wherever they toured and performed. 

Known for their epic, energetic live shows where anything goes, their drunken, middle fingers anthems like “Secret Police”, “Little Bird”, “Crazy Friends” and countless others are still sung by loyal skankers all these years later.

Here he talks to Texx about their origins, the friends, the fights and the tours that served as a backdrop for Fuzigish’s epic story ahead of their new album drop.
