In a series of tweets, Lamiez expressed her anger and disgust at what had happened. She revealed that in her eleven years of gigging she had never felt so violated, further saying that not even eight bodyguards were ready to protect her from being harassed therein manner.

“I’ve had 2deal with alot of chaos at gigs(as patiently as possible)

The DJ and presenter expressed that the incident made her very upset and emotional that she cries when she talks about it; reiterating that she isn’t an object.

“Went to bed with such an important heart. It’s all good now or a minimum of it’ll be.
I need 2stop talking about last night coz it upsets me such a lot that I find yourself crying everywhere again.
Not because i’m weak but due to how angry I actually am!
