WATCH: Shona Ferguson’s last birthday message to Connie

Connie Ferguson turned 52 on Friday and she shared her late husband, Shona Ferguson's last birthday message to her before his death.


The Fergusons celebrated the birthday of their matriarch Connie Ferguson on Friday. 

Her daughter Ali Ferguson also turned 20 on Tuesday, and Connie shared a beautiful message to mark the occasion. But for her own birthday, The Queen Mzansi Magic actress shared a video of her late husband Shona Ferguson wishing her a happy birthday on the same day last year.

Connie turned 52 and in the video she posted of Shona’s emotionally-driven speech, their daughter Ali appears and the voices of family members and friends can be heard in the background.
