Pearl Thusi defends DJ Zinhle

19 January 2016, 20:45

Lagos - Pearl Thusi has defended DJ Zinhle for revealing AKA had been cheating on the music producer.

The 27-year-old television personality was shocked to hear the South African rapper had been having an affair with Bonang Matheba and admits she, herself, has experienced something similar.

Speaking in support of the 32-year-old disc jockey, she said: "That could have been me who had a little baby and lost my man. It could have been me and no holds barred.

"So I'm not gonna say, 'Yeah, because you are so and so, I'm not gonna say what I need to say.' ... I've been on that side of the coin and I know what it feels like."

Meanwhile, Pearl has also defended her decision to join in the conversation about AKA's alleged infidelity.

She added to SlikourOnLife: "And then in the public I'm trying to make sure my money is cute, and I'm trying to make sure that everybody thinks I'm sweet and I don't get involved in things that aren't my business.

"I was just saying, everybody was just saying their peace. Why couldn't I do that? So my whole thing was, if you're going to support somebody, support them even in a way that could somehow, hopefully, not be detrimental to you because that's when you're putting your neck in the line for somebody, not when you're doing it privately. So that's where I stand."
