- Pearl Thusi defended Somizi for his comments over the trending Imali Eningi song
- Somizi expressed that he's not feeling the song because he cannot relate to it
- Pearl believes that the rich reality TV star was only joking when he made the comments
Pearl Thusi has taken to social media to defend Somizi amid the backlash over the comments he made about Big Zulu's track titled Imali Eningi.
The reality TV star recently expressed that he feels that he cannot relate to the song as well as other South Africans do. He even said that he would not even take part in the viral #DuduzaneChallenge.
The Metro FM presenter's comments rubbed a lot of social media users the wrong way. The song with catchy lyrics is popular in Mzansi and is one of the most played songs on TV and radio stations this festive season.
Pearl took to Twitter on Thursday, 24 December to respond to Gabi Mbele, communications manager and journalist, who criticised Somgaga for his opinion on the viral track. Pearl said:
"Somizi was probably just kidding though guys."
Tweeps have shared mixed reactions to Pearl's post. Check out some of their comments below:
"He never jokes about anything related to money. He’s always forcing it on people how he has money or how rich he is and how poor we are."
"Well, I guess he must set the record straight."
"He is rushing towards 50 he can’t be kidding."
