Pearl Thusi has always made her feelings clear and heard.

She opened up about her “beef” with fellow Metro FM employee, Bonang Matheba in an interview with Gareth Cliff on CliffCentral on Monday.

Two days ago, Pearl was allegedly accused of throwing jabs at Bonang on air during her Metro FM show with co-host Phat Joe.

Gareth asked Pearl about her relationship with rapper AKA on which she replied: “I think people like to take on the beef of the people they’re dating and I think that’s what’s going on, because AKA and I actually don’t have a problem. I don’t have any issues with AKA. I think he’s just supporting his girl and that means being against me.”

Pearl explained her attitude towards Matheba. “It’s a thing of finding out the stuff a person has been saying or doing without you even knowing. You know like a 'snake in the grass' type of thing, where you’re like... ’Hawu, I thought we were indifferent about each other', the Live Amp presenter said.

"Because we were like kind of cool with each other, hanging out in London during that Pharrell thing and then break-ups happen and then you find out things from the people who shouldn’t have told you about those things, and you’re just like, ‘Wow! You’ve dogged me so hard!'"

She concluded to say that the issue between them is not about competition because there are other media personalities she gets along with and they don't see any competition amongst each other.
