Johannesburg - TV presenter, Lalla Hirayama has spoken out about her early teen years, describing how she was constantly bullied at school.
It was at that point when Lalla's mom decided to take her to her hometown in Japan. But even that wasn't an easy transition. "It wasn't Tokyo. It was a small place where English wasn't spoken and I battled to fit in."
But it was there that Lalla discovered her love of dance and when she came back home she started a dance crew.
In the interview, which was recorded before she broke up with her boyfriend, Chris Nkosi, Lalla admitted that having a relationship in the public eye is difficult. "It's difficult but I'm not going to hide my relationship just because I'm on TV."
Since the news broke, Lalla posted this snap of herself in a bikini saying that she was taking some time for herself.
