South African musician Gigi Lamayne announced on her social media page that she and her team had been hijacked on the night of 19 May.

The musician was able to update her social media as well as her fans on the hijacking soon after it happened, because she says she escaped the hijacking with her phone.

“I just got out and ran with my phone. I know it wasn’t the safest thing to do,”  the rapper said.

An hour later Gigi updated her fans that the car had been found. According to the rapper, the hijackers attempted to remove the tracker installed in the vehicle but it seems as though they were not fast enough as Gigi’s tracking company was able to locate the car and recover it.

In the video that Gigi posted as an update, she thanked her ancestors for always having her back and for returning the car to her.
