Family, friends and fans of the late actor Shona Ferguson gathered yesterday to pay their respects at his tombstone unveiling ceremony. The theme for the event was all white and guests showed up in their finest white attire to honour the beloved actor. Ferguson was a prominent figure in the South African entertainment industry, known for his talent on both the big and small screen. He passed away in July 2021 after a battle with COVID-19.
The event was a somber but beautiful tribute to a man who was loved and respected by many. As guests mingled and shared stories, it was clear that Shona's memory will continue to live on through his work and the people he touched. The all-white theme was a fitting choice for the occasion, representing purity, peace, and unity. Music was provided by musos Bongani Sax, gospel singer Teboho Moloi and his daughter Aliia played drums.
At the unveiling ceremony, speakers remembered Shona for his kindness, professionalism, and dedication to his craft. They spoke about the impact he had on the industry and the many lives he touched throughout his career. Giving a speech at the ceremony, Ferguson shared a grief poem by Donna Ashworth titled
