Connie Ferguson is a long time veteran of the South African soap opera scene, and is a favorite among all who are familiar with her work, both on and off the screen. The proud South African is largely known for her role as “Karabo Moroka” in Generations, as the rebellious yet business savvy daughter of Paul Moroka, the patriarch of the successful advertising media firm, New Horizons. Ferguson also starred as “Mavis Mabaso” in Rockville, a soap opera she created with her husband, Aaron “Shona” Ferguson.
Ferguson began her career in the entertainment industry in the late eighties, and started off as a model and presenter on CCV-TV and later on, the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC). She rose to fame as a cast member on the popular soap opera, Generations, but left the show in 2010 amidst mixed reactions from fans and viewers.
While she has already established a name for herself as an accomplished actress, Ferguson continues to expand her brand, building on her many talents and interests. She is the first South African woman to launch her own celebrity fragrance, True Self, and is a co-owner of Ferguson Films with her husband, Shona Ferguson, which produces Mzansi Magic’s Rockville series. With a focus on boosting quality, locally made products, Connie Body Care was launched in 2014, and seeks to become an established brand across South Africa and the rest of the continent.
