Rapper Gigi Lamayne is making major moves and we are here for it!

The multi-award winning rapper and poet took to her social media to announce that she will be flying the SA flag as an honorary guest at this year's International Music Conference - which is set to take place in Amsterdam on 18 October.

Gigi will be part of the keynote speakers in the global conversation about the progression and global ethos of the hip hop genre at the 10-year anniversary of the ADE Beats international music conference.

In an Instagram post, Gigi made reference to the fact that this is a first for Africa and made the promise to continue shining and working hard. An emotional Gigi also thanked her #GigiGang in Zimbabwe, Namibia and Botswana for the love and support.

Her caption read: "Happy to announce that I will be representing SA at this years international Music Conference in Amsterdam as an honorary guest and performer! All I’ve ever wanted to do was reach for the stars and land in the clouds ! ⛅️ Thank you for prayers, well wishes and love! #GigiToTheWorld 🚀 Swipe left for more info !"

Gigi Lamayne is definitely one of the best artists in the hip hop game right now  and she is deserving of this honour at such a prestigious event.

This year, she became the first South African hip hop artist to perform at a presidential inauguration when President Cyril Ramaphosa was inaugurated. She also achieved another first in Africa when she hosted an all-female line up show.

These are mega moves! Kudos to you, Gigi! Keep soaring.
