Cape Town - Rapper Gigi Lamayne’s spine-chilling – since deleted – tweet left her fans fearing the worst over the weekend.
In the tweet which was captured by parody account @AdvBarryRoux, the Ice-cream hitmaker wrote her birthdate alongside Saturday’s date which led to many believing that the 24-year-old rapper was feeling suicidal.
“We have no comment for the media at the moment as we are busy trying to sort out Gigi’s health and well-being before involving the media," she said.
Taking to Twitter to reassure her fans that she was okay, Gigi posted a picture with the words "Depression don’t win" written can be seen in what looks like a hospital bed on Monday morning.
"Awake. Wasn’t time huh...," she captioned the tweet.
Messages from fans wishing her a speedy recovery have been pouring in on social media. Including one from Arts and Culture minister, Nathi Mthethwa.
