Sithembile Xola Pearl Thusi (born 13 May 1988) is a South African actress, model, television host, and radio personality. Thusi is known for her portrayal of Patricia Kopong in the BBC/HBO comedy-drama series, The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, Dayana Mampasi in the ABC thriller Quantico and Samkelo in the romantic drama film Catching Feelings. One of South Africa’s most influential actresses, she starred in the title role of the critically acclaimed Netflix crime drama series Queen Sono, which was Netflix’s first African original.
From her bold and colourful South African beaded native hat for women to the African beads choker. Truly, there is sufficient evidence to prove that Thusi is a proud ambassador of African fashion. Thus, Pearl’s style is simple with a punch of ethic goddess presence.
Her love of African dresses never fails to provide the freshest look that goes from the red carpet to off-duty. Bear in mind that, Pearl does not only wear African print symbolic to South Africa. The South African native also draws inspiration from the Ghana Kente fabric and African print fashion as a whole.
