Television actor and executive producer Shona Ferguson has passed on due to COVID-19 related complications.
The 47-year-old died at Milpark private hospital in Johannesburg on Friday afternoon.
He was admitted at the hospital last week after suffering from chest pains. It was later discovered that he had heart problems and he underwent a major heart operation.
The family dismissed claims that Shona Ferguson died from the heart operation.
Conrad Mwanza, a representative from the Ferguson Foundation said they are devastated by the news and they are still trying to process his passing.
He co-owns a production company with his wife Connie, Ferguson Films which is responsible for giving fans a variety of award winning shows like “Rockville”, “The Queen”, “The Throne”, “The Herd” and Netflix’s “Kings of Joburg” which was one of the Top 10 watched offerings in South Africa.
