True Love Never Dies: Connie Ferguson and Neo Matsuanyane Reunite

Fans were pleasantly surprised as they learned that producer and actress Connie Ferguson, known for her role in the second season of the Netflix series “Kings of Joburg,” is set to act alongside her ex-husband, Neo Matsunyane.

The details of Neo Matsunyane’s role in “Kings of Joburg” season two remain shrouded in mystery. However, it has been revealed that he will share the screen with Connie Ferguson, who has dedicated the second season to her late husband, Shona Ferguson.

Reports suggest that Lesedi Matsunyane-Ferguson, Neo Matsunyane and Connie’s daughter, serves as the casting director for the highly anticipated series. This addition of her father to the cast has introduced a fascinating dynamic to the show.

A source close to the production stated, “Lesedi was the casting director for Kings Of Joburg seasons one and two, and adding her father brought such an interesting dynamic to the series. It is giving people something to really look forward to.

They are curious about what will happen to him, and their relationship as a family, and of course, the gossip will want to know about Neo and ous Connie, it is expected. But there is really nothing there, just family bonds and friendships.”

Another source emphasized that Shona Ferguson would have approved of Neo being a part of the series, underlining that their relationship was marked by mutual respect and a strong bond. “They are not shady like that. They had a very healthy relationship even before Uncle Sho passed on. I think his passing might have brought him and his daughter closer, and that is okay.”

The second season of “Kings of Joburg” is set to premiere on Netflix on January 27. The first season, starring Shona Ferguson, Connie Ferguson, and Zolisa Xaluva, concluded with a gripping cliffhanger.

The new season promises to delve into the aftermath of the series without Simon ‘Vader’ Masire, portrayed by Shona Ferguson. Former Gomora actor Zolisa Xaluva, playing Mogomotsi ‘Mo’ Masire, will take over the storyline following Simon’s sudden and unexplained disappearance on-screen.

A press statement for the show reads, “Sacrifices are made and alliances forged as the family is hunted by new enemies while trying to maintain its position in the city of gold.”

“Kings of Joburg” season two also features a stellar cast, including SK Khoza, Thapelo Mokoena, Thembi Seete, Sello Maake KaNcube, Buhle Samuels, TK Sebothoma, and many more.
