Watch Gigi Lamayne and Eminent Fam’s Video for ‘Koze Kube Nini’

Gigi Lamayne and Eminent Fam share visuals for their collaboration.

Gigi Lamayne recently highlighted "Koze Kube Nini" from her latest EP, Job Woods, as a single with the release of a music video. In the song, the emcee and her guests are condemning abuse against women and children. She makes reference to Karabo Mokoena, one of the many South African women who have been killed by men in the country that's facing a gender-based violence crisis. Mokeona was violently murdered by her partner in 2017.


Even though the song is tackling a serious topic, it's still catchy and you might just catch yourself getting down to it.

The video shows performance scenes of Gigi and the Eminent Fam crew, intercut with a short film which depicts a story of a woman getting abused by her partner.

"Koze Kube Nini" is a single from Gigi's latest EP, Job Woods which was released in July to critical acclaim. The 10-track project features the likes of 25K, YoungstaCPT, Kwesta and several others. Job Woods is one of Gigi's best releases yet, as it sees her ditching the idea of trying to be a lot of things at once like she always has in her previous projects. She focuses on rapping, and the production is uniform.
