Said Shona on The Kings of Joburg
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”
His wife and business partner Connie Ferguson also shared her husband’s excitement on the Kings Of Joburg saying
We’re living in exciting times where the world is becoming smaller and smaller. What used to be out of reach is now a stone throw away! With ’Kings Of Joburg’, we are taking South Africa and Africa to the world and bringing the world to South Africa.
We honestly can’t wait!
