Connie Ferguson is the mother of two daughters, Lesedi Matsunyane-Ferguson and Alicia Ferguson. And her youngest daughter just marked the last secondary school  milestone recently by attending her matric dance, with the doting mother using her Instagram to let fans into the auspicious day.

First Connie took to her Instagram stories to share some of the details from the day. Through the Instagram story we learn that Ali’s makeup was done by “The Queen's” lead actress. Ali who is already sitting in her chariot with her date tells the camera bashfully that Connie was responsible for the beat. It took Connie’s prompting to get the answer, but eventually Ali was able to admit that not only was her mother responsible for the makeup look. But the Ali felt beautiful with a face beat, which is not the norm for the tomboy. 

Another detail which was revealed through the Instagram stories, and later retold in the touching caption Connie, is the matter of Ali wearing a dress. Ali opted to wear a tuxedo dress for her matric dance. The tuxedo dress was a meeting of what Ali would want to wear- a tuxedo. And the teenager’s compromise to make everyone happy, with her wearing a dress as it is common practice for matric dance. The cute tuxedo-dress meant that it was the first time in 11 years that Ali wore a dress.  

Reflecting on all of the day’s events, Connie penned a touching post dedicated to her daughter and all the matriculants of 2020 by writing in part in her caption:

“I’m feeling an overwhelming sense of pride! My last born is bidding high school goodbye and I can only marvel at how she and her mates stayed committed in a climate filled with uncertainty. A rare breed they are! Forced to adapt to survive! Today they deserve to celebrate themselves, as they get ready for whatever lies ahead in their future! I am so proud of you my angel Ali, you look absolutely beautiful and radiate joy! Blessed beyond measure and truly grateful!”
The mother-and-daughter’s close relationship is one that Connie has let us into for years now. The two are responsible for the sometimes comical, sometimes touching and sometimes just downright slayage dance videos. Every other week the two have spoilt us with Ali taking her mother on a dance journey, which depending on the style of dance, Connie will either be goals and keep us wondering if her second try will be better.
