Actress Pearl Thusi recently took to social media to complain to MTN about her data contract. The media personality told the mobile telecommunications company that her data contract wasn't working and her prepaid data was "gone" in just a few hours.
The stunner tweeted:
"Dear @MTNza - don’t know why my contract data isn’t working so I bought 5GB data yesterday. In a few hours - gone. I loaded 500 airtime to use to buy data later - it ended up being used without warning. Now I loaded 6GB and it was gone in an hour -wasn’t even using my phone. Please help."
The network provider was quick to respond to the celebrity. In just an hours time, MTN replied to Pearl:
"Hi Pearl, we can confirm that one of our admin consultants are assisting you via DM. K/M."
Many social media users, who had been crying out for help from the same service provider, were not impressed by this. They slammed MTN for quickly responding to Pearl because of her celebrity status.

Still on Pearl, Briefly.co.za reported that Pearl wants her summer body back and can't wait to hit the gym to be super-toned again. The star revealed this in a recent Instagram post, where she posted a throwback snap of a slimmer her.
Pearl captioned the post:
"The distance between your dreams and reality is called the action. Which is why I want this body back - but even stronger. Being my own version of thick has been fun, but being toned is also dope! What y'all prefer?"
Her fans took shared mixed reactions on her comment section.
