This week’s WCW is in honor of women’s day and of course our undying crush on one of the most talented, beautiful, hard working and dedicated women we know. Our woman crush of the week is South African actress, model, business woman, radio jockey, and television personality Pearl Thusi.
Born on the 13th of may 1988, in Kwazulu- Natal South Africa, Pearl Thusi’s career officially began when she started her modelling career at the age of 13, she contested in and won the Miss KwaZulu-Natal competition, after which she went on to contest for the Miss South African teen pargent, in which she emerged as the first runner up.
After her TV debut as co presenter a kid’s show titled i-crew on SABC 3, Pearl Thusi continued to make TV appearances on top shows like Family Bonds, Jacob’s Cross, Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency, Soul City and E.TV’s Rhythm City.
She is presently the host of MTV Base Africa’s hit show Lip Sync Battle, a Host on Moments South Africa and host of Internet show The Right to vote, which formed a part of the African National Congress “Black Ops” election campaign. She also got an international break in her acting career in 2016. She acted as Dayana Mampasi on the second season of ABC’s Quantico.
This article will not be complete without showing love to Pearl Thusi’s full, long and healthy natural hair, a feature she is mostly recognized for. Pearl is notable for flaunting and owning her curls by styling them in different ways.
We have to admit that adorable pictures of her and her daughter on the internet have us and so many people in awe. They just make us want to have a daughter, but we bet we won’t be as adorbs as these two peas in a pod.
