Top Billing hangs with DJ and presenter Lamiez Holworthy
Top Billing hits the road with DJ Lamiez
DJ Lamiez of SABC1’s foremost live music show is the picture of success with an incredibly uplifting story, though it wasn’t without a few ups and downs.
To land the amazing gig of Live Amp host, Lamiez overcame self-esteem issues from her cross-cultural background, beat tough financial times, and dealt with a number of setbacks including an unfortunate car accident and the theft of her expensive DJ equipment, but it was all worth it when she got the call.
Today she’s a successful DJ and host, and she’s rewarded herself with something she has always dreamed of, a Harley Davidson. She and Jonathan bonded on the road while discussing her amazing journey, which wouldn’t have been possible without her incredible family.
When her mother was retrenched, she chose to buy her daughter DJ equipment over electricity. Her faith was well placed, and today she manages her daughter’s impressive career, which is still expanding with an upcoming single and a biker clothing line in the works.
While they recently suffered the loss of Lamiez’s father, she is happy to know that he was proud of her every day, and his support and encouragement was a huge driving force in her life.
As for the rest of the family, they help keep her grounded in a demanding industry, and she schedules at least one play date with her young nephews every week.
With an impressive portfolio that just keeps growing, we can’t wait to see what she does next, with the support of her family by her side.
