The Fergusons recently released a trailer of the series and it had many yearning for all the episodes to be released already. In a video Shona shared on his Instagram account, he said today he was at a car-wash and said he has been receiving calls from people and fans at the car wash who have been excited about the premiere tomorrow.

The 6-part series delves into the legacy building, fragmented family structures, treacherous brotherhoods, and the effects of crime and African masculinities on families and society at large. Loyalties will be tested, with long-held secrets threatening to shatter the fragile facade.

In this thrilling test of loyalties under the gritty, concentrated populous of the crime-ridden streets of the city of Johannesburg, unravels another first for local audiences, a palpable action-drama series with a layer of dark fantasy and a sinister aspect of the African occult.

In a statement released by Netflix SA Shona Ferguson explained why he decided to produce the series.
When I created KINGS OF JOBURG I wanted to root the show in elements of love, family, conflict and power. The premise of the series is centred around the question, “Am I my brother's keeper?” and this narrative is explored in all 6 episodes. The mystical and thriller side of the story is inspired by the folk tales that I grew up learning about from my late father, Peter Harry Ferguson."

"These stories kept me up at night and gave me nightmares but I had to bring them to life in a tale of human conflict. Audiences will be surprised to learn that despite the darkness of this story,  Kings of Joburg, paints a beautiful picture of the city of Johannesburg. I am also grateful to have worked with such an amazing cast and crew who gave it their all and helped bring my vision to life," he explained.
Shona portrays the character of Simon “Vader” Masire, a member of the KOJ brotherhood and the eldest of the Masire siblings. As the smoother and charming brother, prolific businessman Simon leads the family business. However, under the lavish suits and ties is a man hiding a deep dark secret. Joining the cast also is Zolisa Xaluva, Tk Sebothoma and Buhle Samuels, and many more.
