Pearl stars in a Nigeria movie called Her Perfect Life. Speaking about the film, Pearl said:

"The unforgiving thread of mental illness in the vastly contrasting worlds of two African women. Two compelling stories that expose the undeniable and unprejudiced destruction of mental illness. @moabudu has written and directed two extraordinary stories that will catalyze this conversation and peel the veil of stigmas attached to mental illness and illuminate in the minds of our people the truth about mental illnesses regardless of where you are in life or where you come from."

"HER PERFECT LIFE sheds light on the unseen mental health challenges faced by Onajite Johnson Ibrahim, a woman living a seemingly perfect life in Lagos. IYAWO MI is a story that explores the complex and often-unspoken challenges that come with love, marriage, and mental health. Thank you for your love and support."

Mo Abudu who is the writer and director of the upcoming film said: 

"@pearlthusi, thank you for taking the time to showcase both "HER PERFECT LIFE" and "IYAWO MI" to your followers across the globe. Your support means the world to me, and I am truly grateful for the opportunity to raise awareness about an issue as important as mental health.

"As you rightly pointed out, mental health is still largely considered taboo in our society, and it's time we pay more attention to those who are dealing with this challenge. Mental health does not discriminate between social strata, and it affects people from all walks of life, regardless of their socioeconomic status.
With the support of individuals like you, we can help break the stigma surrounding mental health and create a more compassionate and empathetic society. Thank you once again for your advocacy."
