Connie Ferguson expresses gratitude as “The Queen” ends

Phelo Bala slams criticisms received after revealing that he is a sangoma.   The music artist revealed to Zimoja that he accepted the calling 8 years ago, hence it’s not new as people may have thought.  “I’ve never hidden my gift. My calling is nothing new,” he says. “I have countless times spoken about it and shared my journey, the hardships, and what it means to me.”  “It’s not something you wake up to one morning and decide to pursue. It’s not a joke, it’s real life. I don’t think If I had a choice, I would choose to be a sangoma.”  He says being a sangoma isn’t fake or something he does for fashion.  “Why would anyone fake something so challenging and demanding? Having this gift means you have to deal with yourself, your mental wellness and go on these intense programmes to understand what you have. So, I doubt being a sangoma can ever be a fashion statement.”  The former lover of Moshe Ndiki further detailed how he received and accepted the calling to be a sangoma while speaking to Zimoja.  “I was in Gqeberha for a funeral and after the funeral proceedings, I started to almost lose my mind, Phelo says. “I didn’t understand some of the things I was saying. I woke up the next day and some parts of my body were not working, and I was in a way. hallucinating. I was then taken for a consultation and that is when I found out about my calling,” he adds. “That is when everything started for me. It was a shock, but it kind of made sense.”  “I’ve had to learn some things and understand that it is a gift and not a curse. It has not been easy. I needed to know myself, my culture, and my creator,” he concluded

Connie Ferguson expresses gratitude as the South African drama series, The Queen comes to an end.

The final episode was aired on Friday and the actress penned a lengthy note shared on Instagram.

Connie says the end of the soapie triggered a bitter-sweet feeling, but she’s grateful for the support received over the years.

Today marks the final episode of a show that’s very dear to my heart THE QUEEN. It’s such a bittersweet moment for me. Sad that it’s coming to an end but also grateful for the opportunity to produce close to 6.5 seasons of a show that gave the young black producer the courage to say, IT IS POSSIBLE!”

“@mzansimagic Thank you for taking a chance on Sho and I, and giving us our 1st opportunity as producers with the first ever drama series on the platform ROCKVILLE. A few other dramas followed after that, but THE QUEEN has been our biggest break so far! It allowed us to do what had been our greatest desire, to create employment for over 100 cast and crew for 6.5 years, giving our staff the opportunity to improve their lives and those of their families. So @multichoice_group @mzansimagic THANK YOU,” she added.

Connie concluded the note by appreciating her family members, the viewers and lastly her late husband, Shona Ferguson.

“To my Ferguson Films family, what a ride this has been. We have taken a lot of blows over the past two years, you all stood strong like CHAMPS! Thank you for your resilience, your passion, your hard work, but most importantly, thank you for your hearts! Thank you for walking this journey with me, till the next one!”

“To our lovely viewers and loyal fans, THANK you for making The Queen what it is! We are because of you! Love and appreciate you so much!”

“Last but not least, Mr. Sho, this moment doesn’t feel right without you here.🥲 I’ve had a lot of anxiety about this day and it’s finally here. Even though in spirit I know you’ll always be with me, today I just need YOU! In your physical form, to hold my hand and say “baby, we did it. We had hoped for 5 years and we got 6.5. God is good.” I am so happy I did this with you, all of it! You’ll be proud of your team! They rocked it till the end!”
