Be brave enough to make mistakes and fall - Pearl Thusi on overcoming failure
Pearl Thusi has graced local and international screens, billboards, magazines and airwaves with the many talents under her belt.
She also made history when she became the star of the first African-produced Netflix series, Queen Sono, in 2019.
She chats to Azania Mosaka about how she views failure and the moments in her life where she failed, and what these failures taught her.

Maybe some people might attack you and you may have to deal with things that are uncomfortable, but I feel like in that discomfort you have that phoenix that continually rises within. It's not always fine to have everybody agree with you or kind of buy your face. You need sometimes to be challenged and to realise that even that opinion or how you shared it is a mistake and go back to certain people who might have been affected and apologise and be accountable at the very least...Pearl Thusi, South African entertainment star
