Without implicating Connie Ferguson, one can not talk about the South African entertainment industry. Connie Ferguson is a multi-award-winning actress best known for her on-screen characters from Generations to The Queen. She had her shot at fame with her on-screen character on SABC1 drama series Generations. She starred as Karabo Moraka. Since then, she has been the darling of small screens.
With an illustrious career spanning years, she has managed to cap her career with several accolades.
She also happens to be the co-founder of Ferguson Films Production. The media house has since been dupped as one of the biggest production houses in Mzansi. In recent years he has produced big productions like The Wild, The Queen and the Netflix series Kings Of Joburg.
In the wake of her newfound fame, her private life has often been implicated in her success. After all, we have connected the dots about her love life. She has been married not once but twice. Let’s dive into her marriages and the scandals they have faced recently.
In 1993 Connie Ferguson got married to Neo. However, their marriage came against the backdrop of the birth of their first daughter in 1992. The two had a fallout in 1998. However, their fallout was a shocker as they served goals and looked picture-perfect. Years later reasons behind their fallout remain unknown.
Of interest is that Neo Matsunyane is a celebrated actor who had his shot at fame with his on-screen character in the television series, Kelebone. Currently, he is part of the star-studded cast of the Netflix series Kings Of Joburg, a production of Ferguson Films.
Recently the two found themselves trending after rumours of their alleged rekindled affair made rounds on social media. This came after Neo was cast into Kings Of Joburg. However, Connie Ferguson cleared the daring rumours after she made it known she is just like any other actor and does not cast actors since she is not part of the showrunners and production.
Barely three years after her fallout with Neo, she found love in the arms of Shona Ferguson. The two went on to wed in November 2001 despite falling in love in July. In 2002 welcomed their daughter. However, with a marriage spanning decades, Connie Ferguson lasted her husband on 30 July 2021 from COVID-19-related complications.
Some years ago, her marriage with the late Shona hogged headlines for the wrong reasons.
Reports had it that Shona had an extramarital affair with Sharon from Generations. Some sources even have it that they have a child together. However, in the wake of the daring allegations, Connie Ferguson allegedly got Sharon cancelled from several media outlets due to her influence. Sharon is yet to star on small screens after her fallout with SABC1 drama series Generations.
