Kings Of Joburg on Netflix features Connie Ferguson as the lead.
Following the unexpected death of her husband Shona Ferguson, it appears that award-winning actress and producer Connie Ferguson has joined the second season of Netflix’s original series Kings of Joburg as a lead.
Shona, one of the series’ main performers and producers, passed away in July 2021 at the age of 47 from complications associated to COVID-19. Although Connie made a few brief appearances as a mermaid during the first season of the show, she is most likely to take the lead this time.
The actress gave her followers the first glimpse at the series on her Instagram page. She posted a clip with cast members from some of the most popular Netflix series, including How to Ruin Christmas, The Baby Shower, and Blood and Water.
Fans get a glimpse into the new cast members of the shows, including Connie.
As soon as it was announced that the series would shortly return, fans expressed their excitement in the comments area. Zolisa Xaluva, Cindy Mahlangu, Thembi Seete, Tsholofelo Matshaba, Tokollo Sebothoma, Abdul Khoza, SK Khoza, and Buhle Samuels were among the illustrious cast members of Kings of Joburg season 1.
Shona portrayed Simon “Vader” Masire, the eldest of the Masire siblings and a member of the KOJ brotherhood. Simon is the smoother, more charismatic sibling who runs the family business. However, a man is concealing a sinister secret beneath the expensive clothes and ties.
Connie thanked Shona for everything on her Instagram account as season two’s filming began in May.
“My angel, thank you for everything! Day 1 of KOJ on the 1st working day of the week was a success! You’d be very proud of the team! I certainly am! Long live my king. Long live,” she wrote.
For his work in Kings of Joburg, Shona won the Hollywood and African Prestigious Awards (HAPA) prize for “best outstanding lead in a drama series” in 2021.
Connie did not hold back when she expressed her gratitude and joy for her husband’s continued recognition for his excellent work and mind in an Instagram post.
“These are major wins for all of us! I am so proud of this show and the hard work and passion that went into creating and making it! So much investment from everyone! To God be the Glory!… Thank you @hapawards for the nod!…” She said
