Actress and TV host Pearl Thusi paid a heart-warming tribute to her mother, sixteen years after her passing. 

Taking to social media the “Queen Sono” star shared a photograph of her mother holding her in what looks like a christening ceremony: “As I begin to write this... I realise from now on, every day will be one more day I’ve been on this earth longer without you than I was ever with you, Mom. In the flesh anyway.”

She continued: “I find new ways to cope every time the world finds a way to remind me that you’re not here to console me about the little things and the big things..."

"That I can’t boast about how you made and raised the first African MAC cosmetics ambassador, the first person to lead a Netflix original in Africa... an international actress, a strong mother, businesswoman, and activist.”

Pouring her heart, Thusi added, telling her mother how she would give it all away in exchange for her presence in her life.

She said: “You did so good mom. I’m so proud of you... but I’d give it all away to have you with me. I really would. The fame, the money. I can’t share it with you but hopefully, I use it to make sure people remember you & I continue making you proud by raising a young woman that will be our ancestors wildest dreams. Love you forever and always."
