Naturally, Pearl's best friend DJ Zinhle was there to be part of the festivities as well.

She later posted a video captioned, "Dear Bassie...” This was part of my speech on my birthday... it’s such an honour to get to celebrate the people who’ve help moguls who you are. And you, @basetsanakumalo, have been a rock and shield in my life without wavering. I hope God continues to bless you abundantly. I love you."
