Connie Ferguson's, the actress, filmmaker, producer, businesswoman & wife to Shona Ferguson, big day is finally here. From her days as Karabo Moroka on Generations to her current role as Harriet Khoza on The Queen, it feels like we've known her for a very long time.

It would be poetic injustice if we talked about Connie and did not mention her husband, Shona Ferguson, and her family too. From the moments she gushes over her man to spending time in the gym with Alicia and Lesedi and being the best grandmother anyone could ask for, Connie is all about strong family ties.


However, no one is perfect and our faves do get it wrong sometimes. Remember that time when Connie got dragged for doing blackface and when she got backlash for her Glamour magazine-cover look?

As she celebrates her 51st birthday, here's a look at the many times Connie had people on TL talking about her.
