Pearl Thusi, a South African media personality and actress, has hit back at notorious YouTuber Slik Talk, who claimed that she “isn’t as desirable” as she previously was.
This followed the viralization of a video of rapper Siyabonga ‘Big Zulu’ Nene’s interaction with Pearl.
Big Zulu is seen embracing Pearl in the footage, who leaps into his arms. They’re also seen holding hands and laughing about.
Pearl is heard sarcastically remarking to the rapper that he “doesn’t want her anymore” before the background music drowns out the rest of their chat.
Slik Talk took to his YouTube account to express his thoughts on the viral video, including some scathing criticism of Pearl.
“I want want to talk about a manchurian candidate, a trojan horse, an overrated actor in Pearl Thusi. I just saw this disturbing video of running up on Big Zulu to give him an inappropriate hug like ‘you don’t care about me, you forgot about me. Pearl Thusi, first of all, you’re pushing 40 and you act like you’re 19.
Baby girl you’re not as desirable as you once were, I’m sorry to tell you this…people aren’t checking on you anymore Pearl Thusi. You’re constantly trying to get attention, you constantly trying to trend. My thing is let’s focus on the talent with which you have none. You’re a terrible actor. You cant act to save your life,” said Slik Talk in the video.

The jabs did not go unnoticed by Pearl. She used Instagram Live to retaliate against Slik, claiming that he was trying to become famous. Slik’s outfit was also on her mind when she arrived.
“He’s this blogger person who is desperate to be one of us. He has this wardrobe background. He doesn’t get paid. We need to buy him a new wardrobe or background.
“I’m not going to going to punish Slik Talk just because he’s a bottom feeder YouTuber. What I will do is I’m going to buy him a new wardrobe, possibly a new camera and a tripod. Just to kill him with kindness vibes,” Pearl said in the video.
