Queen Sono actress Pearl Thusi took to Instagram to show off her ‘semi-nudes’ on 30 March while still in Bangkok, Thailand leaving fans crushing over her body. 


The actress, who is currently filming in Thailand for Netflix martial art series Wu Assassins, took to Instagram to show off her exquisite body in a silver bikini to her 3.8 million followers. The selfies taken at the Mandarin Oriental, gathered more than 120 000 likes and the comments section was filled with “Pearl Thusi love”. 


Influencer Nadia Jafta left “ ????????????” under the picture and so did actress Thando Thabethe. Artist Thulisile Phongolo thought it was “too cuuuute ????” and Blood and Water lead actress Ama Qamata wrote “HELANG????????” meaning ‘The Eagle’ when translated ti English. 

Fellow Blood and Water actress Khosi Ngema wrote “Okay Pearl Thusi????”. Shawn Mkhize also dropped in with “Babe ❤️????????????” and DJ MsCosmo SA wrote “Buya phela ????” meaning ‘come back later’ when translated to English. 

Other Pearl Thusi stans also let out their inner fangirl in the comments section.

“???????????? Plays Wiz Kid ft Tems – Essence” wrote @erratic_a.

“At last you bless us with a post! ????????❤️” wrote @mswends26.

“Cuteness overload ???????????????????? @pearlthusi” wrote @forever_ellenn.

“@pearlthusi you’re going to give someone a ❤️ attack looking that dangerous. ????????” wrote @mr_wasabi_.

“She Zulu n Yellow… grew up in the ghetto Pearl Thusi i love you ????” @maxibigfish.


However, the love Pearl Thusi was shown on Instagram was quickly overpowered by the shade thrown at the actress on Twitter. 

This follows the highly anticipated last news bulletin of veteran news anchor Noxolo Grootboom on Tuesday 30 March, which even President Cyril Ramaphosa respected by delaying the “family meeting” by half an hour for South Africans to watch the bulletin. 

Several celebrities, such as Minnie-Dlamini Jones and Somizi, took to social media to show their love and respect for Grootboom. However, Pearl Thusi got dragged on Twitter for her post being more of a publicity stunt than fueled by actual emotion and respect. 

Pearl Thusi posted pictures on Instagram with Grootboom and in one of the pictures she is seen kneeling down and holding the veteran news reader’s legs which Tweeps thought was all just an act

“I’m shattered I couldn’t be home to watch one last time but you are forever etched in the minds of your people and will appreciate every night we had to share with you,” wrote Pearl Thusi on Instagram.
