Gigi Lamayne almost lost her life last year when she attempted committing suicide and landed in hospital for days.

When she was discharged she shared that she had been suffering from depression for quite some time in fact it got too much to a point where she felt she couldn’t take it anymore.

She revealed in one of her interviews from last year that the depression was caused by her childhood experiences. Recently speaking to DJ Fresh on Metro FM she added that part of the depression was caused by the pressures of the industry that left confused and feeling unworthy.

“I had just had enough. I had enough of the industry. I had enough of constantly competing or being put up against people. I had enough of trying to be perfect all the time. It was just like either she is gaining weight, or she’s losing weight, or she’s too dark. There was too many expectations.”

At the time Gigi’s mom was in Cape Town undergoing an operation for a brain tumour.

“I just felt really let down. I kept thinking maybe I shouldn’t have gone into music, maybe I shouldn’t have put myself out there. Maybe I should have just graduated from Wits and get a 9-5.”
