DJ Lamiez and Speedsta land Live Amp presenting gig

Metro FM's DJ Speedsta and newcomer, DJ Lamiez Holworthy, have scored a coveted gig that promises to position them as TV's unstoppable duo.

An insider told Sowetan that after weeks of searching, the fresh-faced pair will replace Lerato Kganyago and DJ Warras as the new hosts of SABC 1 music show Live Amp.

Another source revealed that the deal was sealed earlier this week. Stars such as YFM's DJ Sabby and Khutso Theledi; Tsonga rapper Sho Madjozi and Uzalo actor Nkosinathi "Nay Maps" Maphalala were top contenders for the gig.

Novice DJ Lamiez, noted for her luscious curves, edgy half-shaved dreadlocks and intricate tattoos, is one of the hottest female DJs in Pretoria.

"I have really big news to share with you all.

"Just a week or two and we will be good to go," she has been teasing her fans on social media since Monday.
