Shona Ferguson’s Death

The mercurial actress has beenĀ vocal about her griefĀ and has taken time to remember her husband and mark special occasions, their 20th anniversary, six-month after his death, andĀ his 52nd birthday.

Connie has not been alone. There’s been anĀ outpouring of messagesĀ from Mzansi, as they rally behind her, as she recalibrates her life in the absence of Shona Ferguson.

Connie Ferguson’sĀ Controversies

One of the biggest dramas they faced was when one of Ferguson Filmsā€™ disgruntled employees claimed that the production company was a slave driver.

Ferguson films broke their silence on the accusations stating that these rumours were the product of misguided allegations made by actress Vatiswa Ndara.

TheĀ iGaziĀ actress, who at the time played a role in the series, wrote a letter to the Minister of Arts where she alleged ā€˜poor remuneration, unfair contractual agreement, unfair treatment by producers, and made claims about bullying and intimidation in the industryā€™.

Connie and Shona released the following statement about the allegations via their legal representative;

ā€œAs actors ourselves and producers, we are aware of the challenges facing the entertainment industry. We fully support the need for the industry to be regulated and the Performance Protection Amendment Bill to be signed sooner rather than later,

“With that said, the allegations made by various actors do not reflect the true position of the industry and paint a false picture that may mislead the public.ā€

The cover instantly shot to the top of the ranks on the trending list but for the wrong reasons. Fans didnā€™t react the way they usually did to Connieā€™s flawless images.

Instead, they were taken aback by the bodysuit and leather jacket combo paired with an uncharacteristic bob wig.

Some fans opined that the look did not fit the carefully curated style and image that Connie Ferguson has developed over the years. They felt that it would work on a younger person.

Did Connie Do Social And Community Campaigns?

Connieā€™s been using her fame and influence for the greater good these days. Ferguson Productions hosted sexual harassment impact workshop on the set ofĀ The QueenĀ Mzansi recently.

Both cast and crew members shared their thought on how sexual harassment can be ended and pledged that they will never commit the crime.

The campaign fits well with the recent trend where celebs have been using their social platforms to call for an end to gender-based violence and human trafficking.
