Gabrielle Union has a new Woman Crush and it’s no other than South Africa’s Pearl Thusi, the new kickass on the block.
Pearl Thusi is winning every Tom, Dick and Harry’s heart after her spectacular role in the New Netflix African Original Series “Queen Sono”.
It’s no surprise American Actress Gabrielle Union is a big fan and really inspired by her role.
Gabrielle Union share a post on her instagram with these beautiful words of caption;
“Today’s #WCW is the talented and captivating Pearl Thusi (@pearlthusi). I met Pearl randomly in a bar in Barcelona while watching the World Cup, right after watching her Netflix movie, Catching Feelings… and I completely fanned out! She is the kind of woman that’s a superstar for all the right reasons. She is an entrepreneur, philanthropist, friend, mother and more. She has her own hair care line called Black Pearl Hair… and launched the first ever MAC Collaboration in Africa EVER. Her project Queen Sono is Netflix’s first African original… before her they had never done anything script to screen on the continent! And her movie Catch Feelings was their first African movie ever licensed. Her passion for education, women, kids, and fighting HIV has lead her to some incredible work…. helping Global Citizen, many other organizations, and starting her own, Black halo, to focus on helping rape victims. To continue her philanthropic efforts, she just started working with Nkosi’s Haven – a foundation run in honor of Nkosi Johnson, the longest surviving child born with HIV at his time of passing. There aren’t even enough characters available for me to describe everything this woman has done for the world and accomplished! She’s the kind of woman to pop up at my birthday dinner at my favorite Mexican spot when I thought she was out of the country. I’m so inspired by all the work she does. From her immense talent to her groundbreaking roles to her hairline to raising her 2 daughters. Just, WOW. Let us lift her up in the light of goodness and hold her there.“
Pearl was just short of words and she only responded; “Gab … thank you … I really don’t know what else to say. Thank you.”
