Miss Modiadie allowed herself to be vulnerable as she stepped into different character as an actress on Bhuti Madlisa , a local film where she played the character of Poppy, this became her acting debut. She has since played various roles including the feisty Kefiloe Malope on etv’s prime-time soapie Scandal in 2013. She received raving reviews for her character portrayal and the character subsequently died of a drug overdose. Pearl can be seen playing the reoccuring role of DJ Jade, a radio DJ on the biggest soapie, Generations The Legacy.
Her radio debut was in 2009 on Gauteng’s youth station YFM. Pearl Modiadie who was known as The Black Pearl to her fans then, first hosted The YFM Playground 03:00 – 06:00 then moved on to host and produce content for The Natural High every weekend between 00:00 – 03:00. It was evident that she had grown in this new role when she was offered the weekend breakfast show The Jumpstart 06:00 – 09:00 that she hosted and produced until her departure from the station in 2013. She is very grateful to have had this opportunity as it kick-started her radio career and gave her the confidence and boost it had given to radio legends who started on the same platform including DJ Fresh (5FM), Chilli M ( Ukhozi FM) and the late DJ Khabzela to name a few. Tune into Metro Fm Every weekday from 12:00 – 15:00.
