Connie Ferguson has been in the industry for more than two decades but some of us still refer to her as Karabo Moroka. No matter how many times people try to correct us, Connie will forever be Karabo, thanks, bye.

You would think our entire childhood was a lie the day we found out that Sdumo's real name was Joe Mafela. The late actor was Sdumo to us, full stop, no arguments.
