Johannesburg - It's hard to keep up with all of the undercover shade being thrown between Pearl Thusi and Bonang Matheba.

Pearl, who left her presenter gig at Live Amp, no doubt felt cut by Bonang Matheba being asked to guest present one episode of the show 7 days after she left. Not just that, but AKA performed his new track.

Can you feel the burn?

But Pearl has got her own back, not only being announced as the new presenter on Lip Sync Battle along with Bonang's ex, D'Banj, but the two are apparently besties.


Pearl has been posting videos of herself on set with D'Banj on Snapchat, and in a now deleted post (The videos automatically delete after 24 hours) D'Banj makes reference to Pearl being the 'Baddest.' You know, like in AKA's song.

Double burn.

While we sit here eating our popcorn, check out this snap where Pearl calls D'Banj her big bro.

B, anything?

Big bro. King!!! ???????? @iambangalee
