It’s true that hard work pays off.

Multi-talented, multi-award winning hip hop artist Gigi Lamayne has won a different kind of accolade: on 30 March, she’s graduating from WITS University with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Media and Anthropology.

Gigi achieved four distinctions and is also graduating as the top third year Media Studies student. She will be awarded the Media Monitoring Africa Prize at a prize-giving ceremony on 14 April.

Now, Gigi says she hopes her achievements will inspire other young South Africans, as well as young and upcoming musicians, to take both their craft and education seriously.

Now that’s a real role model!
