When Cape Town actress, Danica Jones briefly appeared on Generations The Legacy to play a bisexual character named Tamryn, tweeps took to Twitter to find out if she’s somehow related to Thusi or if she’s Thusi herself. 

When Jones got several DM’s from Thusi’s fans, she cleared up the misunderstanding in a 14 second video on twitter:

“Hi guys, so to answer all the messages that I’ve been getting… no I am not related to Pearl Thusi nor am I Pearl Thusi. My name is Danica Jones.”

Model, actress and masters student Qiniso Van Damme resembles Thusi the most on this list. When she was announced as “The Bachelorette South Africa”, Thusi’s fans immediately DM’d her on social media as they noticed that she resembles Queen Sono actress Pearl Thusi.

Van Damme and Thusi got so close during her reign as “The Bachelorette South Africa” that they started having fun at people comparing them to each other and began referring to each other as sisters.

It all started when Thusi’s fan asked Van Dammme: “Are you related really?” to which she replied “We are not related. Shem. But that’s my big sis.”
