11 things you don’t know about Pearl Modiadie


In an interview with TshisaLIVE the Zaziwa presenter shared some fun facts about herself and how “flattered” she was when an upcoming artist called Jack told her he wrote a song about her.

“One day after my Metro FM show I found a young man waiting for me. He introduced himself as Jack and told me he had written a song about me and some soccer player named Lerato Lamola. Although I didn’t expect it, it was so sweet,” she said.

The Pearl Modiadie song puts her name on the list with other celebs like Pearl Thusi, Bonang Matheba and Steve Kekana. The song sings her praises and chants her achievements.

Pearl said she has learnt the hard way when it comes to allowing her fans too much freedom in her private space. However, she said that as a public figure she knows that she must still share some of her life with her followers.

“I know that we ultimately control what we share about ourselves, so I made a conscious decision to share only a certain portion of my life,” she said.

The presenter-turned-producer also gave TshisaLIVE some fun facts about herself:
