Connie Ferguson eldest daughter reveals her mom is not okay

It’s been four months since the passing of Botswana-born actor and media mogul Shona Ferguson. Shona passed away on the 30th of July 2021, due to Covid-19 related complications leaving behind his wife Connie Ferguson, their two daughters Alicia Ferguson and Lesedi Matsunyane-Ferguson and grandson Ronewa Malema.

Taking to her Instagram account, his eldest daughter Lesedi Matsunyane-Ferguson penned down a heartfelt message to the late Shona that has brought tears to the eyes of many.


Matsunyane-Ferguson, who received the Editor’s Special Tribute award at the G MOTY 2021 awards, on behalf of her late father and in place of her mother Connie Ferguson.

In her tribute she said: “I liked it better when you were our angel on earth, at least I could nag you on if you’d eaten yet or find you sitting weirdly on the couch, or catch you up on everything MCU related. The more time that passes, the more I feel like I left too many things unsaid. The more I question whether I showed my love for you enough and regret the hugs I didn’t give or take. I also question if I made you proud then and I’m making you proud now. I’m trying. Don’t know if I’m succeeding.


“It’s not just four months since we lost you. It’s also your twenty years anniversary with Ma @connie_ferguson. I cannot imagine how bittersweet today is and I’m honestly heartbroken just thinking about it. Please be with her today. She misses you more than words can describe. We all do..”.
