It’s been a dream week for Mam Connie in America, living her best life. Everything is flowing, and she is meeting many celebs she never imagined seeing. The loved actress has shown that her fame has gone beyond borders, and being part of the Wakanda family took her to greater rights.,
Mam Connie was arguably the most standing out star at the theatre, with her big dress drawing all the attention. This many were shocked celebs who were present to see a seventy-year-old granny putting on such top fashion. No worries, that was Sonto representing Mzansi and the whole of Africa. After a long, tiring but entertaining day, Connie couldn’t keep up anymore with the heavy dress. She had to leave it behind as she attended her honorary dinner in a lighter outfit.
Many congratulatory messages are raining across the continent, and local celebs can’t wait to be with Sonto back. We all want to hear her whole story in America, but here is a piece of what Mam Connie had to say about her stay in America.

Many fans and celebs like Gomora’s Mazet ‘Siphesihle Ndaba‘ could not wait to hear of Connie’s experience in America. Thanks to Connie, she gave us a glimpse of her life there and what it means to her. Mam Connie started by thanking all the fans and people who made the trip possible and successful. During her speech, Connie could not help with emotions as she broke into tears.
She spoke of how talented we are as Africana and that we should start to believe in our talents. Indeed, Connie had to wait until seventy to be recognised internationally, but she doesn’t want that to happen to upcoming African artists. In the end, people asked questions, and she answered them all patiently, speaking of how she intends to be remembered. Mam Connie said she does not have a specific way she dreams of impacting people’s lives but instead would prefer one to take a piece off her in their way. Before she left the mic, many of her fans brought presents and picture portraits, and it’s been a wonderful moment.
