Gigi Lamayne has once tricked us into believing that she is getting married when she released her hit single Lobola in June 2017. That is why it is hard for us to believe that she has undergone a spiritual journey to heed her ancestral calling and become a sangoma.
Gigi Lamayne confused her legions of fans after posting a picture of herself draped in a Sangoma cloth. Are we looking at another traditional healer in celebville, or are we looking at another publicity stunt for a hit track/album?
The 25 year old’s fan base on Instagram is filled with a mixed bag of unfamiliar and familiar individuals. Those that form a great part of the latter, are quite privy to Gigi’s personal life. They flooded the comments section with colourful congratulatory messages as she has finally heeded the call of her ancestors.
Gigi simply captioned her mysterious post as “THOKOZA” – a popular term used in the traditional healing realm to greet and give thanks.
Thobi_Rose: ”Sending Love – Thokoza Gogo.”
Ms_Scarlip: ”Siyavuma, I am healing Gogo. I am breathing Gogo. I am sane Gogo. Spiritually I am fed Gogo, I rain Supreme through all the pains of life, Gogo. I realize the universe sending me messages Gogo. Siyavuma 👑.”
FashionInk_Chef: ”Thokoza gogo 👏 siyakwamukela akube’mhlophe kudede ubumnyama kuvele ukukhanya 🌕✨✨✨✨.”
Kinginnosa: ‘‘I’m glad that you followed ubizo lwakho coz iDlozi belizokuphuca konke onako mawunga landeli ubizo❤️.”
Rapper and television reality star, Boity Thulo is another celebrity in the rap circles that has proudly “answered the ancestors call”. In an interview with Scoop Makhathini on The Cover, the 29 year old mentioned that she’s still on the learning path, hence she regards herself as a novice in her new spiritual journey.
