When it comes to legends in South Africa, we can never name them without naming film and television actress, business woman and producer Connie Ferguson. From the early 90s from her role on Soul City to the extremely popular Karabo Moroka on Generations, we all as young women wished to be like her. So Glamourous, tall, beautiful, smart and poised, most of us looked up to her. And as she transitioned from being Karabo Moroka to becoming Mavis on Rockville and created a leading production house Ferguson Films with her husband Shona Ferguson, we have grown with her and continued toStan greatly for her.
