According to Zimoja, a source revealed that Pearl Thusi and Anatii are indeed in a relationship.

“They are not hiding their relationship, they do go out to restaurants, events and other places – they just avoid media but it’s just a matter of time before they go public or start posting. They want to make sure that the foundation is solid,” said the source.

Last month, the rumoured couple was spotted together at rapper Nomuzi “Moozlie” Mabena’s 30th birthday party where Pearl Thusi was the MC.
