Media personality Pearl Thusi is back in South Africa and marked her birthday with a celebration attended by family and friends.
Thusi turned 35 on May 13 and, besides the club hostings, she also had a birthday party at 12 on Hillel Villa and Spa, which is owned by Lerato Kganyago’s businessman husband, Thami Ndlela.
The birthday party was attended by famous faces including Kganyago, DJ Zinhle, Natasha Thahane and Rosemary Zimu. They shared the memories on their Instagram stories, leaving many in envy for not bagging an invitation.
Seeing Thusi, Zinhle and Kganyago together, all smiles, excited a lot of fans, who had previously started to speculate about the famous ladies’ friendship.
@kgabo_shilabjwe tweeted a picture of the three together and said: “They are back 👑❤️😭 Lerato kganyago,Di Zinhle and Pearl Thusi ❤️.”

Thusi previously slammed the narrative that her friendship with Kganyago and DJ Zinhle had failed, after a Tik Tok video she posted about friendships had many assuming she was talking about them.
“This is nonsense. Guys – Zinhle and Lerato have not been my only friends. I didn’t burst out of a rock and become famous – I have childhood friends, before fame friends etc. Please stop this,” she tweeted.
