We can all agree that social media can be a very vile place which can break a person mentally. But it can also be a place where a a good deed is done where people come as a collective to assist a person in need.

DJ Lamiez Holworthy knows a thing or two about the vileness of social media and how it almost pushed her to the limit as she is not strong enough. But she understands that she has a large following that support her and that social media is the greatest platform especially when you're an artist.

Lamiez is known for helping a lot of people on social media who are in need financially. It came to a point where she told beggars to back off because she is tired of being their cash cow.

But when a woman who has been living with Lymphedema and gotten a liver transplant needed assistance with her swollen leg, Lamiez pulled through and helped her raise R13 000 in less than two hours.
Lamiez was inspired that incident to speak about how she feels that social media is not all bad.

"Social media can be really dark and then I look at the other side, the side where complete strangers come together to build and not destroy, to change each other’s lives for better. Where we laugh and celebrate each other. And then I know that life isn’t all that bad," she said.

She then asked people to chose positivity and not negativity.
This comes months after Lamiez told her followers that they should stop asking her for money because she does not have it and that she has her own problems.

"Do us all a favour and stop asking me for money. I don't have it. Just like you, I have problems and responsibilities of my own," she wrote on her IG stories.

Lamiez knows a thing or two about social media bullies who always bully her for her weight. She was once even called a man by social media bullies because of her physique.

β€œI have been on LiveAMP for so long because I am different, because I am the change that the world so desperately needed, that SA desperately needed. Little girls need to see a woman who look like them, other women need to see women that are real, women with stretch marks, women with cellulite, women with big thighs and they needed to know that it was OK.

β€œPeople needed to know that being different is OK and that is also your power once you accept your flaws, no-one can use them against you,” she said.

"I have women of all shapes and sizes who follow me for this very reason! I have little girls who look up to me because of how comfortable I am in my own skin! Daily I am subjected to the constant body shaming and bullying and told to be the bigger person. Well today Le nyile ge!"

Lamiez said she used to spend a lot of money on weaves but she decided to cut her hair, β€œI used to be a weave girl, I used to spend thousands on really long weaves because I thought that made me more like the girl in the magazine would look, so cutting my hair was me taking back my power,” she said.

Lamiez once told TshisaLive about how she is grateful for the platform which allowed her to heal people through, β€œWith every episode, seeing how many people's lives I'd touch, random strangers that would meet me and cry, random women of all ages, most older than me, would come to my gigs in shorts or a dress and would tell me that they were comfortable in their own skin because of me, is priceless."

β€œI realised that this is so much bigger than me as an individual. That this is for every child in the hood who's been told that they're not enough," she continued.
