“Not all heroes wear capes” is a fitting quote for the commendable initiative rapper and reality TV star Gigi Lamayne is embarking on. The 27-year-old hip-hop artist has offered to pay for the registration fees of a university student.

This may seem like it’s not much for some, but with the plight of poverty-stricken household in South Africa, any opportunity to change a life is applauded.

The Temptation Island SA contestant took to her social media accounts to announce that this year she is going to help somebody by paying for the university admission fees.

I’m looking to pay for somebody’s university admission. Hit me up [sic].

– Gigi Lamanye

As expected,  a number of students in need replied to Gigi Lamayne’s posts, asking to be the beneficiaries.

Seeing that so many students are in need of financial assistance, the musician wrote a follow-up tweet in which she expressed that it breaks her heart that she cannot help everybody.

“I can’t help everyone.That breaks my heart. I’ll go through as many as I can. I’m so sorry for those I won’t be able to assist. I pray God grants me an idea so big , I could Make money just for this cause annually.”

– the rapper wrote

The musician then proposed a fundraising initiative in the form of a benefit concert in order to assist more students in need. In addition,  she asked her fans to propose other ideas to help raise funds.

“A benefit concert perhaps?? If you also have ideas, hit me up.” she added.


Besides being a musician, Gigi Lamayne is philanthropist too. This is not the first time that she has reached out to those in need.

In 2021, the star tweeted that she had bags of clothes that she would donate to an orphaned of her fans’ choice. She did the same in 2019.

“Hey Twitter Fam ! It’s that time of the year where you help me decide which girls home I’m donating some of my clothes and accessories to. Comment with the name of the home and help a sister out,” she had written in a tweet which was accompanied by a picture of her and bags of clothes in the background.
