From working together to spending time together and showering each other with expensive gifts, we can’t help but love the Fergusons. It’s also hard to miss the couple goals that he’s always serving with his wife, Connie, and it’s been 20 years.
It then came as a shock when Vatiswa Ndara wrote a long letter exposing the unfair treatment that he had received from Ferguson Films, a production company owned by Connie and Shona Ferguson. The move seemed to open a can of worms as more actors started coming to talk about their dismissals as well.
Despite his success in the film industry like producing the hit series Kings of Joburg which he just announced that it’s coming back for season 2, it seems the drama keeps following him around.
The business mogul who is always celebrated for his brilliant work is in a celebratory mood today as it’s his birthday. The actor has built quite an empire in the industry and he is the brains behind some award-winning shows such The Queen, Igazi, and Rockville.
Besides his career, we cannot miss the couple goals that he’s always serving with his wife, Connie, and it’s been 19 years. From working together to spending time together and showering each other with expensive gifts, we can’t help but love the Fergusons.
Shona has been in the limelight for several years now, and he has managed to solidify himself as a respected actor in the industry and everything he touches turns to gold. Remember his announcement about joining The River? He keeps showing his prowess and how he’s the master of television that we all love and adore.
As he prepares to take on another year of adventures, here’s a look at Shona Ferguson’s year gone by.
In a no-holds-barred 6-page open letter to the Minister of Sports, Arts & Culture, Vatiswa incriminated the Fergusons of exploitation as they are the production house owners she was employed by.
Vatiswa asked the minister to intervene in cases where actors were not paid what was due to them. She claimed that she was offered R110 000 before taxes over five weeks of work with no limit to calls on one of the Ferguson’s productions, iGazi. Sello was also a bit coy in divulging the full details of why he left The Queen, however, he did corroborate Vatiswa’s story about being underpaid by Ferguson Films.
It seems Vatiswa was not alone in this, Mlamli Mangcala accused them of ill-treatment and deceiving him. However, the Fergusons refuted the claims.
