Social Media mocks Connie Ferguson after old Generations video resurfaces

An old video of South African-based Motswana actress and film producer Connie Ferguson acting on Generations had Tweeps commenting on how terrible her acting skills were which ultimately had them in stitches.

According to the Generations website, the soapie was created by Mfundi Vundla and first premiered on SABC1 on 4 February 1994. The show was said to have broken new ground in “paving the way for stories that celebrate the hopes and dreams of black South Africans who aspire to a better future.” The show was also said to have been the most-watched daily drama in Mzansi.

Even after airing for over two decades on SABC 1 at 20: 00 PM, it reportedly has remained the number one most-watched daily drama. The show has since been rebranded as Generations: The Legacy.

In the video doing rounds on Twitter, Ferguson whose now 52 years can be seen in her youthful years on the set of Generations. In the scene, she can be seen acting as Karabo who in the scene was under the influence of alcohol or narcotics as she gatecrashes her on-screen father’s formal event. She busts through the door and demands everyone’s attention before attempting to get on top of the table to have fun with her father Archie Moroka.

After watching the old video, Tweeps were in awe and voiced that Ferguson’s acting was extremely terrible. They added that her acting abilities have been consistent over the years to the point that after leaving Generations in 2016, she had no choice but to start her own productions.

Ferguson has since become a prominent South African film producer with telenovelas such as Kings of Joburg, The Queen, Rockville, and more.

According to a local publication, she was said to have recently reunited with some of the cast members when she joined Generations: The Legacy in April.

Here are some of the reactions:

“There’s another video of her I saw and it was so bad 😭 😭 😭,” @gwno01 said.

“She’s always been a horrible actress, her consistency at being terrible is really admirable,” @Mllibo wrote.

“Makes sense why she gave others a chance on The Queen even though their acting skills were terrible,” @saintzea responded.

“She’s terrible and I never realised this till I got older,” @egnilmil22 replied.

“Are we worried about the extras were acting? Cos uSis Connie’s acting skills have been consistent since the 90s,” @2nd_of_HerName commented.
