Gigi Lamayne says she has had enough of men making her a loan shark. The ‘Feelin U’ hitmaker is a sucker for love, but it seems she is tired of being treated like an ATM.
“The love I deserve comes with money. I’m tired of men making me a mashonisa,” she tweeted.
The love I deserve comes with money 💰. I’m tired of men making me a mashonisa. 😭💀

Looking for love
While she is not willing to be a mashonisa for her man, Gigi is willing to go to great lengths to find her true love. The musician joined the cast of ‘Temptation Island SA’ – a reality show that tests the strength of four couples’ relationships.
“Together, the couples experience the ultimate holiday in paradise, where they join single men and women, all looking for love. There, they live the ‘single life, in a test that is meant to help answer their most difficult questions about their relationship,” Showmax said in a statement.
Gigi joined several other well-known singles on the show, which premiered on Showmax last month.
She hopes people will get to see a different side of her on the show.
“I want people to see me outside my element, you know, not as a celebrity, not as an artist but as someone who also faces the same challenges. I am single, I am looking for someone, if it happens on the show, why not? I’ve always kinda dated people in my industry, and it was only recently that I decided not to,” she told TshisaLIVE.
