“Hopefully one day I’ll be able to honor you and create the legacy you deserve to make sure your name and memory lives on… it’s still as if we laid you to rest just yesterday.
It’s been a year…” wrote Pearl Thusi.
Pearl Thusi said that her heart is still bleeding because of the sad loss of her father.
“Lala kahle Bhekizizwe Naphtal Thusi. Ndoda emadodeni. Mfene, Mlotshwa… 💔 inhliziyo isopha igazi namanje … silahlekelwe namanje izinhlungu siyathunukala… angikakwazi nokukhuluma, ngivume ukuthi ungishiyile… ngithemba ikuthi la ukhona bakuphethe kahle Baba. Ingane yakho eyohlala ikuthanda… Xola. Goodbye Daddy 💔” wrote Pearl Thusi.
According to Times Live, Pearl Thusi (last year) broke her silence by saying, “1st one without you daddy”.
They further report that Pearl has previously shared that her relationship with her father wasn’t always great due to some past issues. However, the pair had worked out their differences and it seems like losing him — years after losing her mother — affected her deeply.
According to the publication, Pearl revealed on her birthday that her father had recently died. It was the first birthday the actress was celebrating without her father, Bhekizizwe Thusi.
“Sending you love my beautiful,” said fellow actress and 947’s afternoon drive host, Thando Thabethe.
“💔 sending you love, warmth, and lots of hugs. ❤️,” said her friend DJ Zinhle.
