Cars and Houses
Connie’s mansion is really indeed fit for a queen. It has a long winding driveway almost reminiscent of Victorian style castle pathways. The interior is beautifully designed with a lot of portraits showcasing her family.
Connie played Karabo Moroka wife to Tau Mogale and sister to Archie Moroka. And this is one of her most famous roles. Connie was on the show until 2010 when she left to pursue other career options. She then became the lead role in The Wild where she co-stared with her husband.
In 2010 the power couple launched a television company called Ferguson Films. They are responsible for the realeses of Rockville, iGazi, The Gift, The Queen, The River and The Imposter. As phenomenal actors they do not deprive us of their talent even in their own productions. They often appear in many of their films including The Queen where Connie plays the infamous Hariet Khoza. She is the matriarch of a drug cartel family.
Connie has appeared in Strictly Come Dancing along with being a judge on Comedy Central Roaster. She has also launched a fragrance called True Self in 2008. On top of that she followed it with skin care lotion in 2014. In 2018 she appeared on the cover of Forbes Magazine.
Connie had a rather short lived marriage in the 90s. Neo Matsunyane was her husband from 1993 to 1998. They had a daughter together one year before they got married, Lesedi. After this Connie married her current husband Shona Ferguson.
As any young couple would at the time, Shona and Connie tried to have children. They struggled with fertility. And doctors told them that having a child was impossible for them. However in a moment nothing short of a miracle, they were blessed with a baby girl in 2002. Connie even refers to her as Twinny.

Connie Ferguson Controversy
iGazi actress who played the role of Nomarashya wrote an open letter to the Minister of Arts, Nathi Mthethwa about the treatment of South African actors. Ferguson Films produced the Mzansi Magic series.She claimed ‘poor remuneration, unfair contractual agreement, unfair treatment by producers, and made claims about bullying and intimidation in the industry’.
Ferguson Films (Shona Ferguson and Connie Ferguson) released a statement saying “As actors ourselves and producers we are aware of the challenges facing the entertainment industry. We support 100% a need for the industry to be regulated and for 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 paints a false picture, that may mislead the public.
“We attempted to negotiate with the actress and her agent in good faith and within the scope of applicable production agreement, however the agent subsequently recused himself from negotiations, thereafter we dealt with her manager. They made it very clear that Ms. Ndara would not accept anything less than R700 000 for the 5 week shoot. She absolutely had every right to decline our offer, which she did, and we on the other hand as we could not meet her financial demand, due to contractual restraints, had every right to move on amicably, which we tried to do. Just like actors the production company is not guaranteed work, whether the show is performing or not. We do not own the shows we produce under commission, and therefore have no right or say in what happens with the shows post final delivery to the broadcaster.”
This shed a poor light on Fergsuon films. However they were able to salvage the situation before it got out of hand.
