Pearl Thusi and DJ Zinhle became BFFs in 2015 after DJ Zinhle’s man, AKA, started dating Bonang Matheba after an alleged affair.

Their relationship revolved around showing up for each other, fighting each other's battles, traveling and partying together and even rocking matching outfits.

After breaking up with AKA, DJ Zinhle moved into Pearl Thusi’s house while her house was under construction. 

"I didn't have a house, I was literally homeless because of my building and she was in New York and forced me to move into her house, so I moved myself, my nanny and my baby into her house," DJ Zinhle said.  

At the time, DJ Zinhle’s firstborn Kairo was a baby and Zinhle revealed that Pearl Thusi who already knew the ropes around motherhood taught her a lot of things about parenting and how to handle a lot of situations.

Pearl Thusi also came in to narrate her side of her story. She retweeted one of DJ Zinhle’s tweets and explained her confusion at how things had escalated very fast given that she had only decided to get out of the way after realizing that DJ Zinhle was busy.
