"I'm just here to share my excitement and to let you guys know how stoked I am about this Saturday," she says and proceeds to announce that Connie will be in town this weekend.

She encouraged people to buy their tickets as the gala will be encouraging meaningful and impactful conversations. She also shared her story of not being having the energy to start anything in life, be it business-related, side hustles or even relationships, she shared that she is a perfectionist who has high expectations and that delays her when it comes to starting anything. 

This gala dinner will be an opportunity for people to meet other amazing people and network, while sharing the same air with the legendary actress.

Tickets range from N$1 500 for general access, to N$2 500 for VIP experience. Corporate table tickets sell for N$20 000. The dress code will be Elegant Pajamas/Loungewear.

"You asked & we answered! Now that you have saved the date, we can now officially share the rest of the details! The theme for this year’s event is “Imperfect Progress”. (Keep this at the back of your mind. )

"This is our very first Networking Gala Event in partnership with @mindscapeeventsnam & we couldn’t be more proud to have @connie_ferguson be our very first guest of honor!" they wrote on their IG.

Connie Ferguson is a powerhouse who currently lives in South Africa. She is an actress, businesswoman and entrepreneur. She is one of the most respected in the industry and it only makes sense to fork out so much money just to meet her. 

She and her late husband Shona Ferguson who passed away due to COVID-19 complications, were a power couple. She continues to uphold his legacy the best way possible.

She penned a heartwarming post dedicated to Shona when she reminisced on the times they spent together. 

“I have been loved. By God. More than I even thought was possible. Because God sent me an angel at a time when I think I had given up on love. And, my biggest mission in life was to see my daughter grow. Lesedi was eight years old at the time. 

"One evening. Very unexpectedly, very unannounced, an angel walked into my house. I was introduced to this angel by his laughter. I was all the way down the passage in my bedroom. And I just heard this laughter coming from my kitchen. I wasn’t expecting any guests. I was expecting my sister. She lived with me and Lesedi at the time,” she began her speech.

“I came across a message on my laptop that he sent to me. So this text message was sent on the 22nd of April 2017. And he said to me – I just remembered the first day we met. He asked if I had not asked for his phone number, where would we be right now. If I had not kissed you on day three, where would we be? If you had not gone to Botswana that weekend, where would we be? I love you, baby.”

“...And where he is now, if you think Ferguson films is great, know that Ferguson films is great. Because that is my husband’s legacy, and it is going to continue growing from strength to strength If I have anything to do with it.”
