Apart from being a celebrated music icon, Sello Chicco Twala likes to keep his private life just that. Which is why news of him admitting to being DJ Lamiez Holworthy’s biological child surprised much of Mzansi.

The producer – known for working with greats like Brenda Fassie, Yvonne Chaka Chaka, and Sipho “Hotstix” Mabuse – made the revelation after the Metro FM DJ posted a pic with him at her son’s christening over the weekend.


According to Zimoja, Chicco Twala confirmed he was indeed Lamiez Holworthy’s biological father.

He said: “Yes, Lamiez is my daughter, but I won’t go into details. “

Chicco was a guest at his grandson Leano’s lavish christening service, which close family and friends attended. Leano is Lamiez’s first child with rapper Khuli Chana.
