Pearl Modiadie has asked her fans to please respect her boyfriend and not call him 'mlungu bae'.
The star brought this up after a few of her fans called her white boyfriend 'umlungu' on her Twitter page.
It all started when Pearl tweeted that she wished she was in her lover's arms.
A fan responded, "Iphi mlungu bae kanti? (Where is white bae?)"

When the fan pointed out that she doesn't know the bae's name, Pearl said simply calling him bae would suffice.
Another fan quickly backed Pearl up.
