Looks like not everyone is in a celebratory mood over Pearl Thusi’s Quantico debut. Controversial poet Ntsiki Mazwai has aired her feelings on Twitter about the #PearlThusiDay hashtag, questioning why people are not celebrating Winnie Mandela instead.
The SA debut of Pearl Thusi on Quantico just so happened to coincide with the 80th birthday of struggle veteran Winnie Mandela.
And while most people are giving all their love and attention to Pearl, Ntsiki Mazwai wants to know why #WinnieMandelaDay is not trending.
“kinda sad that this is trending instead of #WinnieMandelaDay.. looks like SA really adores and feels validated by America #PearlThusiDay,” the artist tweeted.

Ntsiki went on to make her point in a slew of tweets, explaining that Pearl Thusi’s achievement cannot be compared to those of Winnie Mandela.
