Pearl Modiadie has clapped back at online commenters who accused her of being a show off after she posted about a milestone she recently reached.
The radio host turned 33 this week and posted about how she was proud to share that she had managed to pay off the house she purchased for her father.
Many commenters replied to Pearl with messages of congratulations but there were also critics who posted that she was bragging about her achievement.
Pearl responded to the criticisms by writing that she works hard for what she has and that she will continue celebrating her wins. She wrote on her Twitter account:
"Ngisebenza kanzima and I will always celebrate my wins!! Whether privately or publicly!"
Pearl's clapback sparked off a larger debate about what constitutes bragging on social media since its very nature is about sharing information with others.
Some tweeps responded to Pearl and applauded her for defending her actions, whilst others entered into discussions amongst themselves.
