Aaron Arthur "Mr Sho" Shona Ferguson passed on (may his soul continue resting in peace). It was truly an undesirable moment of days, weeks and even in the present moment, his co- workers, employees, friends within the industry, children and wife are still paying tribute. A true indication of the type of father, leader, husband, boss and friend he was. A true legend.
Together with his wife, Shona Ferguson had a huge filming empire, which is now under Connie's leadership and guidance. "Ferguson Films" has produced one of Mzansi's most aired and loved shows, on top of that, these shows feature the best of people when it comes to acting. The Ferguson Films productions are award winning and reflect the excellence of the Ferguson bloodline.
