Pearl Thusi’s once-solid bond with DJ Zinhle Jiyane has become the subject of much speculation lately. While some whispered about a falling out, others speculated that their paths simply diverged. The actress, TV host, and mom has now addressed the rumors head-on, shedding light on the status of their friendship.
For years, their friendship was a shining example, with their children even sharing sisterly moments and vacations together. However, the camaraderie hit a quiet spell, and they seemed to drift apart. DJ Zinhle formed a closer bond with rapper and fashionista Moozlie during this time. Pearl Thusi candidly acknowledges the rift, citing the classic tiff that befalls friends. Despite the radio silence, she remains steadfast in labeling DJ Zinhle as a friend.
Speaking on DJ Fresh’s podcast, Pearl unveils their journey. “Zinhle and I have always been friends. I consider Zinhle to be a sister, to be honest, and I have three sisters,” she affirms. She acknowledges that friendship dynamics evolve, especially with Zinhle’s marriage and new parenthood. As they both steer through life’s twists and turns, Pearl emphasizes the enduring thread connecting them, even when the equilibrium falters.
7 Things To Avoid While Driving An Automatic Transmission Car

This habit won’t let you accelerate the car except for slowing it down. It cuts the oil supply, so the transmission does not get the proper lubrication for smooth operation. It results in significant wear and damage.
For that reason, we recommend discarding this habit since the repair costs aren’t worth the negligible fuel savings.
Revving The Engine Before Switching To The Gear
We all have done it as teenagers. But, don’t be that stupid because your parents are not going to pay the bills this time! It gives the transmission a massive shock that leads to more friction between the internal components, causing damage to engine parts.
Shifting Gears When The Car Is Rolling
It makes your transmission components change direction rapidly, wearing out the gearbox at an astounding pace. Use your brakes instead to stop the vehicle. Some people shift into the Park without pushing the brakes, which is also bad for the gearbox.
Keeping In Neutral At The Red Light
Many people do this to save fuel and protect the driveline from unnecessary wear. In fact, the loss is minimal if you push the brakes by keeping the gearbox in Drive mode. The actual damage takes place when you switch into and out of the neutral mode.
Switching Into The Parking Mode Before Completely Stopping The Car
Shifting to the Park mode will cause a locking pin to be inserted into a gear attached to the output shaft of the gearbox.
The wheels are also connected to the same shaft. So, when you lock it and keep the vehicle rolling at the same time, there’s a risk of breaking the locking pin.
Driving Hard Without Warming Up The Engine
It’s a blunder, especially in the winter season. The oil thickens and moves slowly when the weather is cold. Give the fuel a minute to run into the transmission and all of its parts.
If you shift into gear and start driving at high speed from the beginning, it will lead to severe internal damage.
Keeping The Fuel Tank Low
An automatic car largely depends on fluid pressure to run properly. Fuel also helps a vehicle’s engine and other elements to stay cool and lubricated. So, these will wear out a lot faster if you continuously keep the tank low on fluid.
