SA rapper Gigi Lamayne revealed during an interview with Sho Madjozi that she was once advised by a female celeb to bleach.

Before speaking on Sho’s interview, Gigi had always condemned colourism.

The rapper said she was aware of colourism in the industry and was even told by another woman that she should bleach her skin to get an advancement and stay relevant.

“Most of the time, whether it was on social media or hearsay in the industry, I have always heard about things … I mean, I’ve had somebody approach me in the industry, a woman, encouraging me to change – bleach. She spoke to me about how different things got when she decided to do that.”
