'I work hard and will always celebrate my wins': Pearl Modiadie hits back at 'show-off' claims
TV and radio presenter Pearl Modiadie has hit back at critics who accused her of being “a show-off”.
In a tweet that has since been deleted, Pearl wrote: “Paid off the house I bought for my dad in 2017.” While some congratulated her on another milestone and for being an inspiration, others said she was showing off and should have kept the news to herself.
Social media is so confusing. For some people they think they are sharing good news (personal info) to their friends, while others enjoy showing off their expensive gifts and lifestyle to strangers for compliments. This is good and bad depending on how you interpret it— Gugulethu Khumalo (@Gugulet98892525) December 30, 2020
