Lamiez Holworthy claps back after ‘bored in Maldives’ remarks

By Tamlyn Canham

DJ Lamiez Holworthy and her husband Khuli Chana have been soaking up the sun in one of the most sought-after holiday destinations in the world – the Maldives.

The island nation has been described as the “ideal destination for lovers” and the couple wasted no time exploring their picturesque surroundings.

From sipping cocktails near the crystal clear waters to making beautiful memories in Gucci and MAXHOSA AFRICA, they made sure they captured every Instagram-worthy moment.

But it seems some social media users are confusing the Maldives with Ibiza, because they expected the celebrity couple to be partying up a storm.

“Maldives ya bora. Khuli and Lamiz already look bored. Now imagine ole daar 7 days. Nka hlokofala,” one Twitter user wrote.

“The Maldives looks so Dry, Lamiez & khuli Chana are forcing the Vibes nje,” another use commented.

Some Twitter users pointed out that the Maldives is for relaxing not partying.

“The Maldives isn’t meant for partying or doing extra things it’s to relax and have a nice relaxed holiday with your partner,” one Twitter user wrote.

“Khuli and Lamiez are enjoying life in the Maldives and the ones who can’t afford to be there are the ones having a problem,” another person commented.”

A third person wrote: “Still can’t believe that adults came on Twitter and decided that a couple on vacation is BORED because they’re not doing what they (the adults sitting at home, who’ve probably never been to the Maldives) think the vacationing couple *SHOULD BE* doing. Ave ninemihlola kodwa.”

Lamiez claps back

Lamiez could not understand what all the fuss was about.

“Y’all will say anything on this app for a few retweets. Shame man. We’re on holiday to rest! Hence we chose an island. Ao eme nyana tog,” she clapped back.

“Imagine having to play Dorah the explorer to impress little Les? Come on…” she tweeted.

The DJ added that she has been enjoying her downtime in the Maldives after a traumatic experience.

“This is by far the most rest I’ve had in forever: My body is in shock. Sucks that it took a traumatic experience for me to finally take time out. Take that leave and shut down Work n everything else can wait. My well-being comes first and needs to be a priority moving forward.”

She decided to log off from Twitter to enjoy her holiday in peace.
