IT’s Wednesday and this week we have no other crush other than The Black Pearl, real name Pearl Modiadie who is a South African television presenter, Metro FM’s radio host, actress and producer best known for presenting the SABC1 music talk show Zaziwa.
On Wednesday the Tembisa born personality took to Twitter to advise, especially women never to find themselves at someone’s mercy. Saying that she hopes they equip themselves enough to be able to make their own life decisions without any circumstances forcing them to stay in a hostile environment.
“Ladies especially, please work hard at being self-sufficient and financially independent,” she says.
Pearl Moody as she is also known, spread her wings wider during the 2014 FIFA world cup as co-host of Kasi To Favelas, a live soccer lifestyle show that occupied the 08:00 pm slot on SABC1. This was indeed an amazing year for her, as teamed up with the company for women and world’s direct-marketing company, AVON as the spokesperson/brand ambassador of the Aspire fragrance, joining celebrities like Black-Eyed Pea’s lead singer Fergie and actress Megan Fox, including leading tennis player Maria Sharapova.
Her great fashion flair was recognised by retailer Woolworths when she was asked to be part of their 2014 online and in-store winter and summer fashion campaigns which encouraged fashion conversation on social media. This is PEARL MODIADIE we are raving about here!
Well, there’s more to this black diamond, she has interviewed influential celebrities (like herself), including Kenny Lattimore, Robert Marawa, Yvonne Chaka Chaka, Zindzi Mandela, and seasoned broadcaster DJ Fresh to name just a few.
MGOSI.co.za says this phenomenal woman commands great respect and we hope she keeps it that way forever. We wish Pearl all the lady luck she deserves as the future approaches every second.
Catch Pearl on Metro FM weekdays from 12:00 to 03:00 pm on Lunch with Thomas & Pearl.
