Pearl Thusi is sharing her opinion on what she makes of the “blesser” craze that is sweeping South Africa.
“Blessers” are the advanced version of “sugar daddies”, and usually have much more money to spend on women.
Pearl says she finds it interesting that people pity the women receiving “blessings”, when it is clear that some of these rich men lack confidence.
“These guys are usually fat and ugly. They can’t speak English properly. A girl would otherwise never ever [be] with that guy,” she said on Snapchat.
Pearl added that she pities women who feel like they don’t have a choice, but she can’t understand why some ladies take advantage of “blessers”.
“The man who blesses is the one who has nothing else going, he has to use money, and basically girls take advantage of that. Some of them shouldn’t want to take advantage of that.
“This person, who clearly has a very low self-esteem, because he needs to have a decent bank balance to feel like he is worthy...clearly possessions make the man, which sucks. I feel like, poor them. You have nothing else to get a b*tch.”
Amen for those pearls of wisdom, sister!
Rapper AKA put it best when he described the blesser phenomenon during an interview about his single, One Time.
“Blessers are sponsors for girls who have little ambition.”
Keep preaching the good word, AKA!
