Brenda Ngxoli opens up about her relationship with Connie Ferguson

South African actress Brenda Ngxoli has been trending since she opened up about her working relationship with award-winning actress Connie Ferguson.


Over the years, the celebrated South African actress who owns Ferguson Films has been accused of ill-treating cast members. She has also been accused of having a hand in the blacklisting of several actors over the years.

Seasoned actress Vatiswa Ndara is one of the actresses who has openly accused Connie Ferguson’s production company of exploitation. The iGazi actress wrote an open letter taking a swipe at Ferguson Films a few years ago.

However, Ndara is not the only actress accused of being mistreated by the Fergusons. Actress Keke Mphuthi also accused Ferguson Films of mistreatment. However, The Queen crew member Katlego Malele once opened up about sexual harassment on the set of the show.

Against these daring allegations, Ferguson Films set the record straight with a press statement. The production company said, “The allegations towards Ferguson Films are misguided, misdirected and misleading and can be seen as a ploy to defame and tarnish our name and reputation.”

However, despite the criticism over the years, actress Brenda Ngxoli has shared her incredible working relationship with the actress and Ferguson Films. Speaking on Podcast and Chill with MacG, Brenda Ngxoli made it known that Ferguson Films is one of the best production houses in South Africa.

The celebrated actress has starred in two Ferguson Films productions, Rockville and The Queen. However, during her interview, she made it known that her biggest career paycheque was from the production company. She went on to reveal that she never had problems with Connie Ferguson.

Brenda Ngxoli said, “I have never had money issues with Connie Ferguson. I have never had my money not arriving on time.” The actress also heaped praise on the award-winning actress for helping several actors.

However, against Brenda Ngxoli’s remarks, fans jokingly said she was begging for another gig from a production company. Popular X user said, “She is singing for her supper now. She knows no one talks bad about sis Connie and gets a gig.”

Another user added, “I like that she’s giving credit where it’s due, regardless of conflicts or disputes that might have happened behind closed doors affecting her. When others have impacted your life, praise them to others, even if you aren’t on speaking terms with them or there is conflict.”

With a career spanning years, Brenda Ngxoli has starred in several big-budget drama series, including Home Affairs, Rockville and The Queen. She has capped her career with several accolades. In 2013, she won the Best Supporting Actress Award at the South African Film and Television Awards.
