Sunday World recently reported that Phat Joe and his co-host Pearl Thusi were suspended from their weekend Metro FM show due to listeners complaining about their continuous bashing of Bonang Matheba.
However, listeners were left a bit confused when Thusi began promoting her late night show, The Black Out, on social media on Saturday night.
Pearl’s followers enquired about the suspension rumours, to which she simply replied:
Hahahhahahahahahhahaaaaa!!!!! https://t.co/yTwRHwzjwC— PEARL THUSI (@PearlThusi) January 23, 2016
Only one way to find out! 😊 https://t.co/qELgRYHQ0r— PEARL THUSI (@PearlThusi) January 23, 2016
SABC spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago confirmed that both of the radio personalities were suspended, but it seems like Pearl was given leeway as she was back on the radio on Saturday night.
This has left us confused. Is Pearl suspended from being on air during the day only?
In more positive Pearl Thusi news, the Afro beauty shared her thoughts about Emtee's single, titled Pearl Thusi. In an interview with William Lehong on Metro FM, Pearl mentioned that at first she didn't believe that a song could actually be made about her, but also saw this as a great compliment.
"I'm excited that songs are made about me, it's actually quite a compliment. I think there's like four songs made about me at the moment, but I've only heard two."
Pearl added that she thought the Emtee song was a prank.
"When I first heard the Emtee song I was in disbelief, I really thought it was a prank, but it wasn't and I was very touched. I really couldn't believe that this was a real thing. But like I said it's a huge compliment, I'm excited because it means people appreciate my work."
Pearl admitted that she's loving the attention she's receiving right now.
"Which girl doesn't like attention, especially when someone makes a song about them, of course, I'm loving it as long as it's not disrespectful towards who I am."
And in other news, it seems like Pearl is also over this whole Bonang beef thing and has requested for her fans to also stop enticing the beef.
Guys... this can stop now. 😔 https://t.co/2diFYq3899— PEARL THUSI (@PearlThusi) January 23, 2016
