Pearl Thusi was kicked off of BET's Behind the Story.

After four years of successfully hosting BET's Behind The Story, actress and TV host Pearl Thusi has been fired as a presenter. Nomalanga Shozi will replace Pearl as the next host of Behind The Story, according to entertainment pundit Phil Phela.

“With Nomalanga Shozi as the new host, Season 5 of Behind The Story will premiere in October,” Phil tweeted. He also praised the network for its efforts over the years to advance Nomalanga's career. “I have to give BET credit for sticking with Nomalanga Shozi. BET Africa's talent department, or whoever is in charge of talent at BET Africa, has thrown their support behind her. They promoted the lady, as she was even on Isono. She is in charge of all BET event coverage, as well as other duties. It reminds me of what SABC1 did for its talent.”

Nomalanga said she is where she is now because of her hard work, as she shared the happy news on her social media sites.“In due time, you'll learn my story. For the time being, simply know that it wasn't easy and that I worked hard, she wrote on Twitter.

Pearl Thusi congratulated Nomalanga on her new position on Twitter as well.

” So excited for @RealNomalanga and wishing her and the show all the best,” Pearl tweeted. Pearl isn't afraid to give props to other females in the business. She recently wrote a touching Instagram message thanking Amanda DuPont, the star of Skeem Saam and a TV presenter, on her new business initiative.

“I am very proud of this girl...,” she added. We've come a long way. We've managed to discover and stay on our route amidst the chaos of this sector. Congratulations, @amandadupont! I'm so proud of you for your work with! It's lovely, and the finished product is fantastic! Eco-friendly opulence! It's lovely and high-quality... exactly like you.”

Amanda also sang Pearl's praises in response to her message. She expressed her admiration for her, saying, "Awww sis, I'm sooooo incredibly proud of you!! You've progressed tremendously in all areas of your life! You are an inspiration, a superwoman, a mother, and a gift to the industry! As I remarked yesterday, your life philosophy, principles, and insights astounded me.

The actress expressed her gratitude for Pearl's support and pride in her accomplishments, saying, "Cheers to progress, supporting one another, and uplifting another woman." Congratulations to @ blackpearlhair and @thesitotacollection, two household names. I often say that it takes a strong, confident woman to raise another woman up, and you are just that!
