It has been 4 months now since the passing of Shona Ferguson, Motswana actor and media mogul. Shona, passed away on the 30th of July this year due to Covid 19 complications leaving behind a wife and two daughters.

Taking to her Instagram account, Lesedi Matsunyane penned down a heartfelt message to the late Shona that has brought tears to the eyes of many. Lesedi, who received the Editor’s Special Tribute award at the GQ MOTY 2021 awards, on behalf of her late father and in place of Connie Ferguson.

In her message 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 4 months since we lost you. It’s also your 20 year 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…”

Her comment section is already full of messages of encouragement from her friends and Shona’s industry mates, who have gone ahead to not only wish the family strength even as they continue to grieve the loss of their patriarch but also to wish him and Connie Ferguson a happy anniversary.

Alicia Ferguson also joined in to pay tribute to her father. In a similar Instagram post, Ali shared a picture of her and Shona saying, “Always thinking of you Fa… I love you”

 So far fans agree that Shona was a mentor, a father and an uncle to many across the region. He left a mark that can never be erased and continue to pour in their love and support to the family.
Connie Ferguson is yet to pay tribute to her late husband but has also been receiving much love and support from all over the country. The Ferguson family was set to honor Shona through an organized Gala event that has since been postponed due to public health concerns.

Until then, we continue to spread all our love and support to the Fergusons and to Uncle Sho, may you continue resting in peace.
