Last Saturday, Pearl Thusi hosted a birthday party for her daughter, Thandolwethu Mokoena. Thando had celebrated her13th birthday on Monday, 14 September 2020. Pearl had celebrated the milestone with a touching post on social media reflecting on how it has meant to have a daughter like Thando.

One of the most touching sentiment s she shared on appreciation post was her writing that, “I have so much to say about how proud I am of you, your loving nature, your big heart, you’re the better version of me.”

But the birthday celebration was a celebrity soiree that was hosted at a rented mansion. Included on the guest list was best friend, DJ Zinhle, who brought her own daughter with rapper, AKA; Kairo Forbes.  Melanie and Zwai Bala’s two children were also part of the festivities. Another person that made the list for obvious reasons is the final member of the Thusi all-female clan, Okuhlekonke. All members of the Thusi all-female clan got the hair memo as mother and daughters all go their hairs styled in carrot cornrows for the festivity. 

The “Queen Sono” lead actress despite the backlash she has received on Twitter for allegedly not supporting South African, black-owned businesses made sure she proved the haters wrong. Despite the celebrations being bespoke, Pearl ensured that everything from the décor, to the food and branded slippers and gowns that were provided for the guests were all from black-owned business. The theme was inspired by Thando’s favorite color of blue, which was incorporated into every detail of the birthday party.


But it was not just Pearl that shared her most memorable moments from the birthday party, but Thando also took to Instagram to share some of her own personal favourite moments from the birthday party. Currently, it is unclear if Thando has received permission to now curate her own Instagram page seeing that she is now officially a “young woman,” but her posts about her party did not skim on the details either.
One post that we would have never gotten to see on Pearl’s timeline was Thando’s vote of the best gift she received. Thando elected producer and DJ, “uncle” Black Coffee as the best gift giver for her 13th birthday. Black Coffee surprised Thando with a skateboard, which revealed another unknown detail about her.
To end of the post s on the birthday, Pearl shared a touching message dedicated to her now teenage daughter.
