The awards were hosted over the weekend and Lamiez bagged the DJ of the Year and Music TV Presenter of the Year. Taking to her Instagram account the DJ showed appreciation to her mother for believing in her dream.

She said her cellphone has not stopped ringing since she won the two awards on Saturday evening. She said it took her 12 years to build her brand and her mother has always been supportive and made sacrifices for her to fulfill her dreams.

"It took me 12 years… 12 whole years to build my brand. 12 years that weren’t always the easiest and truth is,I owe both awards to my mother. My mom who believed in me when this was all just a dream,who took money meant to pay the electricity bill and bought me headphones when I just started out(this meant that my family had to sit in the dark a little longer)," said Lamiez.

She reflected on how her mother would make sure that she attends her gig by driving her with her late dad's security van.

"My mom who drove me to gigs with my late dad in a SECURITY VAN because we didn’t have another car at home at the time. My mom who’d spend her last on printing and wearing T-shirts with my name and Logo on it because she believed in me that much. My mom whose been my manager since day 1," she said.

She also went on to thank her followers for voting their support and voting for her. "I also owe both awards to each and every loyal supporter who used their time and hard earned money to vote me. This win is OURS. This win is for every little girl with just a dream- see whilst it looks easy on social media,it’s far from it but when you work hard,absolutely no one can take it away from you-Your time will come. YOUR TIME IS NEAR.The one thing I pray everyone takes from this is that I am no overnight success. That it took me over a decade to build the woman I’ve become."

She also motivated young girls to not give up in their dreams "I pray that little girls stop believing the hype on social media and see that hard work really does pay off. Sadly people put themselves under pressure based on the facades they see online. No one really shows or speaks about the struggles behind the scenes. And yes,there a few that get lucky and get their big breaks quick BUT that’ll unfortunately not be the case for most. What is for you however will not miss you. Block out the noise and focus on your focus. As for me? My name is Lamiez Holworthy and I’m just a girl from Pretoria who refused to give up."

Lamiez's hubby Kuli Chana has congratulated her on her achievements/. "Congratulations to My wife,my homie,stocko saka and friend @lamiez_holworthy it’s so fulfilling to witness all your hard work paying off,watching you grow inspires ME! WELL DESERVED," he wrote on Instagram.

Lamiez thanked him for the beautiful congratulatory message. "Papa Pumpkin,I’ll never lose o Le teng!!! Thank you for not only believing in me but for letting me be. I learn so much from you. I know that Badimo Baka bang rata because of you! Byanong present yona?"
