INSIDE NEO MATSUNYANE’S APPEARANCE
Though it is unclear what role the actor-director Neo Matsunyane will play in Kings of Joburg season two, Zimoja reveals that he will star alongside Connie Ferguson, who’s dedicated the second season to her late husband Shona Ferguson.
The publication adds that Matsunyane’s daughter with Connie (Lesedi Matsunyane-Ferguson) is the casting director of the much-anticipated series.
“Lesedi was the casting director for Kings Of Joburg seasons one and two, and adding her father brought such an interesting dynamic to the series. It is giving people something to really look forward to. They are curious about what will happen to him, and their relationship as a family, and of course, the gossip will want to know about Neo and ous Connie, it is expected. But there is really nothing there, just family bonds and friendships”, revealed a source.
Another source added that Shona would approve of Neo being part of the series. “They are not shady like that. They had a very healthy relationship even before Uncle Sho passed on. I think his passing might have brought him and his daughter closer and that is okay.”
