“Was playing Imithandazo to end my set, o had to thank God for carrying me through that hour. I’ve made a dream come true. Whether this makes sense to you or not… worry about yourself and making your dreams come true. I pray this convinces you to never give up on what you want to achieve. Pearl Thusi


“I was always so worried about what everyone would say about this decision- for nearly a decade. Angisanandaba nezinkulumo zabantu… I practiced until I couldn’t stand anymore… I’m so happy because I overcame the fear of judgement- forgetting that only God has the right to judge me. I’m free,” she concludes. In the wide-ranging interview, Thusi opened up about the current space, including how she is focusing on her holistic journey after having built a solid career for herself and spearheading the first Netflix series in Africa.

“I’m exploring new avenues, challenging myself not to be defined solely by what the world sees. I understand that to those who haven’t grasped how swiftly time passes, and who are caught up in the pursuit of power, success, and love, my perspective might sound a bit unconventional.

“I want to look back and see beyond the visible accomplishments, making time to take care of my thoughts and peace – a realisation influenced by the yearnings of my childhood, now evolved and often neglected, leaving behind a sense of emptiness that I must address before committing to creating again.
