DJ Shimza took to his Twitter timeline to share images of the pair with the caption, “National Hang Awt with Michael Bucwa and Gigi Lamayne”.

Gigi went to Twitter on Monday and in a series of tweets thanked the influencer for a beautiful conversation they had on their date.

“And though all of you assumed a lot, his intentions are pure and genuine. He really enjoys making people feel special and loved, but he moves with so much wisdom. Thank you for opening my heart and mind. Thank you for being real with me,” she tweeted.”

“Thank you for giving me the flowers that I never got because it was easier for people to throw me in the dirt at my lowest. I know who I am now and it’s even better that a black brother reminded me of that. I have a friend and confidante in you for life. Thank you,” tweeted Gigi.

In January this year Mr Smeg went on a date with actress Pearl Thusi which saw brands such as Tshepo Jeans, Era by DJ Zinhle, Drip, Mercedes-Benz, Drip Footwear and many others contribute to their special day which was live-streamed for fans to see.
