Pearl Thusi shared a touching tribute to her late mother on the anniversary of her passing this Monday. The actress said she would rather be without the fame and fortune if it meant that she would get her mother back.
Pearl posted an adorable picture on Instagram of her younger self at her baptism where she is lovingly held by her mother.
The Queen Sono star said she discovers new ways to cope whenever she is reminded that her parent is no longer with her. “I find new ways to cope every time the world finds a way to remind me that you’re not here to console me about the little things and the big things,” she posted.
Pearl thinks her mother would be proud of her accomplishments such as her becoming MAC cosmetics’s first African ambassador, Queen Sono and all her business ventures.
“You did so good mom. I’m so proud of you… but I’d rather give it all away to have you with me. I really would. The fame, the money. I can’t share it with you but hopefully I use it to make sure people remember you & I continue making you proud by raising a young woman that will oh ancestors wildest dreams.”
