She said: Hi. “My name is Pearl Thusi aka Black Pearl aka Mamma Pantha aka Mrs Smeg aka Pearl Wick.

“Have a great day.

Last month, Mr Smeg and Thusi had a great first date, which was broadcast for the “nation” to witness.

The National Lunch Date was a proudly SA moment with local brands Tshepo Jeans, Era by DJ Zinhle and Drip showing support for the date and adding that special touch.

Ensuring that the rest of Twitter did not miss out on the National Lunch Date, it was broadcast live for the nation to witness.

Mr Smeg arrived at his date in style, driven in a Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Only the best for his date.

He was also a true gentleman who bought his date a bouquet of flowers and even pulled Pearl’s chair out for her. So sweet.

National Lunch Date trended on social media with everyone weighing in on how the date was going.

Earlier this year, Thusi landed in hot water again after she laughed at a supposed South African “private joke” regarding Ari Lennox.

The “Queen Sono” star gave a strange response to Mr Smeg’s post stating that “Ari Lennox is not beautiful”, following the ongoing debate of the “Podcast and Chill with MacG” interview.

She said: “Wait! Guys! (This doesn’t mean I approve this message.)”

Questioned as to why the former BET “Behind the Story” host gave this response since it seemed as if she was agreeing and laughing with the original tweet, she replied: “Why that tweet is funny actually has very little to do with Ari. It’s a private joke in South Africa. I think Ari is gorgeous.”
