Gigi Lamayne Shares Fitting Visuals for Her Street-Centric Single ‘Jou Stad’

Watch Gigi Lamayne's music video for 'Jou Stad' featuring 25K and YoungstaCPT.

Gigi Lamayne's latest single is "Jou Stad," a song that's rooted in the culture of repping your city through raps. The song comes with a catchy hook that makes it a potential street anthem.


In the video for "Jou Stad," each rapper's performance scene was filmed in their hood—Gigi Lamayne is in Diepkloof, Soweto, while YoungstaCPT is in Wynberg, Cape Town and 25K in Atteridgeville in Pretoria.

They render their verses as they are flanked by the masses in the streets. The camera doesn't just capture performances but pays attention to detail and highlights some interesting characters and things that make the streets of South Africa what they are.

"Jou Stad" is the second single from Gigi Lamayne's 2019 project Job Woods, it follows the pitiful "Koze Kube Nini" which was released last year.

The 10-track project was a return to form for Gigi Lamayne after a half-hearted release in the EP VI. She admittedly didn't like some of the songs on the project as she felt she wasn't creatively free.

On Job Woods, Gigi focuses mostly on rapping over beats she's comfortable over instead of making songs she thinks you want to hear.
