It baffles me why people would go on national television to bare their deepest deepest secrets instead of just doing it in the privacy of their homes.
As reality shows gain popularity in our country, it's understandable when show's such as YimLo, Big Secret and Uyandanda Na often make it onto our social media trends lists.
On last night’s episode of YimLo, hosted by Dineo Ranaka, we met 26-year-old Thuli from Soshanguve, Pretoria.
Thuli, a mother of two, asked Dineo and the YimLo team to accompany her to tell her parents that she is involved in an "exchange of goods".
She said on weekends she goes out to the local taverns in mini-skirts, after few drinks, she would approach a potential “buyer”, negotiate the price, once the agreement has been reached, she and the buyer will then sleep together.
Thuli however insists that what she’s doing is not prostitution, it’s "an exchange of goods”.
While some were amazed by Thuli's parents reaction to news, others were shocked by Thuli not wanting her boyfriend to know about her secret.
It's not prostitution it's "exchanging of goods"😂🤣🤣🤣#yimlo
I could see this fathers pain right through, can't imagine how a father would feel that her daughter is being used by men. yet he's able to only speak words of wisdom to his daughter... #yimlo this episode was heartbreaking
The parents seem so supportive. They love their daughter regardless. That’s comforting. All the best to Thuli’s family #yimlo
#yimlo how I wish all dads were as loving and supportive as Thuli's dad. 😢😢😢
Respect to Papa Thuli
Guys Thuli's dad neh
Such a dad neh
Such a dad#Yimlo
She does not want her current partner to know. yet she is choosing to reveal such a huge secret on TV, for everyone to see.... EVERYONE.....! 😔#yimlo
At the end everyone agreed that Thuli needs help.
This girl is very brave and I hope she'll get help. #yimlo
Such stories are really sad honestly , unemployment is real . not having money is real , being a mother is more real .. along with the frustration of not being able to afford them..along with the stress of no qualifications 💔💔#YimLo
This is the sad reality of some girls in our townships.unfortunately not all guys who father kids r invested in raising the child and the woman is left to fend for herself. With mouths to feed, this is at most times they only way they put food on the table #YimLo
All Thuli deserves is a Big, Long Hug. No questions, no judgements, nothing! Just a big hug nje.
People go through the most out there.
