! Crazy but true ... this news just in moments ago from the set of Generations:

Generations, South Africa’s number one daily drama series, is saddened to accept the resignation from the series of Connie Ferguson who portrays the character of Karabo.

"It is with the fondest memories that I think back to Episode 1 of Generations, 16 years ago, in which Connie first featured as Karabo Moroka," says Mfundi Vundla, Executive Producer of Generations.

"Connie is a leading lady in the true sense of the word. We will remember her for her professionalism, dedication and loyalty - she is an icon that will be sorely missed by her loyal followers as well as the Generations family.”

According to Connie Ferguson the past 16 years with Generations have been an amazing and humbling experience. “I have received so much love from fans locally and abroad. After 16 years with the show though, I do feel the time has come for me to go out into the world and see what else is out there for me. I feel like a teenager who is just about to leave home for the first time, both excited and nervous.

"A big thank you to Mfundi, Friedrich and Elsje, the executive producer and producers of Generations respectively, for giving me the opportunity to be a part of history in South African TV entertainment, and my colleagues for the love and support they have shown me over the years. I wish them all many more years of Generations," says Connie.

Connie will not be doing any interviews until her official departure from the show in August 2010. The character of Karabo will be on our screens until October this year.

so sad, its feelz like she's dead or missing i dnt knw bt it doesn't feel gud. Generation won't have anada Karabo,she is a lady,very classy,unique,glamarous. She is beautiful. This is a big lose 4 us and generation. It's strange cause i already misses her. Al d best 4 u Connie gud lucky on yo adventure, we wil alwayz love u and miss u

Please don't kill her. We are tired of funerals in generations especially for the moroka family. She will be missed she is so lovely.

I realy dont think there'll b a difference. Not long a go she was off screan and i didn't even notice that she had gone 2 long. Generations was doing good, that shows that she's not the heart of the show. Remember we were so scared when the other actors & actresses left the show, we were complaining. People lyk Pamela Nomvete, Sello Maake ka Ncube etc. But the show has grown stronger than b4.

it's about time she gives herslf another brand name, i cnt imagine playing one character for so many years. She was good hope to see her play in another series maybe a vampire part wow Karb u will sure be missed dear!!!

03 May 2010 08:14

When is Queen leaving?

Msoe
03 May 2010 08:49

Makisto I also think thats the reason why she left. Mfundi forgot that Connie is a brand on her own and talked out of turn when he said that statement. Connie has never branded herself with generations, her name on its own sells. Yes she was popular because of Generations but its not her problem that people associate her with it.

generations is boring at times,Im sure she(karabo) is tired of losing babies and fiances!!!!!

03 May 2010 09:20

I am going to miss her..........She was one of those u knw but then it's time for other growing actprs to show their talent like she did........all i can say is dat i'm proud of her en she's an unselfish woman. Good luck to ur new career Mrs Ferguson!

03 May 2010 09:20

thats one hell of a woman! she is good in whatever she do...just wish she could get a place in muvango, teaming up with tandaza may be that way the endless fights in muvango wil end. al i can say is sis connie you go gal and show them what you made of!................

Instead of killing her character they should replace her with Terry Pheto

Chix
03 May 2010 10:53

@Dini....No one can ever match up to Connie acting the character fo KArabo so plaes no replacements...and replacing her with Terry mighr create tensions because Terry is also doing the Garnier advert so that is BRANDING as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

JadaPinkett
03 May 2010 10:54

I'm the one who's going to replace her

Dini
03 May 2010 10:55

But the girl is also a very good actress sweety I think the other problem was with the salaries as well or let me play the character then.
Maybe Mfundi should do what Isidingo did with the Ace character and give us the chance to audition

her life doesn't revolve aroung Generations.

03 May 2010 11:12

Well Karabo... go well dear

i for one will get over it very soon ...lol, you were not a diva or a villian so apart from you being in the soapie longer than others there is nt much real that can make me boycott Gen .... if i was able to keep watching after my favorite actress Ntsiki and Julia ... those were there people who could often times leave you on the edge of your couch ...so karabo was never anything close to that except when she had a miscarriege.  so for me it is just gonna be another Busi leaving Gen ...lol

I think her going anywhere else except acting will be even more good or even if she can come up with a show of here own(wonder what could that be), maybe about beauty and fashion or whatever ..lol because for some reason nje i cant picture her fitting into any SA soapie without being viewed or expected to be Karabo, so maybe a new drama or new show can do her good....

otherwise she must just stick to her businesses because she is just good and have image for it ....

03 May 2010 11:26

I think she had overstayed her welcome....its about time she left the soapie
she is a wonderful actress but the charecter karabo was no  longer going anywhere......i can't say i will miss her considering she was gone from the show  not so long ago and it made no BIG difference

I wish her all the best for the future

BigMama
03 May 2010 11:28

l wish her all the best in her new venture. l hope she is stepping to another better level.

She should try Scandal

Holiday
03 May 2010 12:04

I hear on move magazine she was getting R9500 per month. i dont know how true is this.  

BigMama
03 May 2010 12:10

@Holiday.....Ferguson, who is getting paid around R80000 a month, had a problem with her salary increment, says a source.

Producers apparently didn’t want to give her a salary increase anymore.

@ Dini
That would be pairing her with her husband Shona Ferguson. 

Maybe she will finally jump to life when doing a kissing scene if it is with the hubby.... damn she can be cold when doing an intimate scene....

Dini
03 May 2010 12:44

@ Holiday where did you hear about the R9500 even Gladys does not get that

@ tizoz to be honest Karabo cannot act she just dress smart

03 May 2010 13:12

i will miss her i real like her boldness people may think or say what ever they like but people like Karabo and Queen stood up for our nation they prove that if other countries can play sopies we can also do it, I will always admire and salute her for her talent Karabo was never involved in any drama like drug or alcohol abuse she has been a role model to us and our kids....you are my hero good luck gal.

Slondy
03 May 2010 13:12

Connie or must i say Karabo really BELIEVED  IN her DREAM.  She was  Living it, it means she was swimming against the stream of the society....because no one will understand the dream u have until the Birth of it. People believe in a Dream once it comes into existance. So make your Dream become Existance by Believing in it and LIVING it. LIVE YOUR DREAM Inspite of every circumstance. Fight For your Dream... it's a loss to generations and to us viewers but bigup to Connie for now she will make her dream come true!!!!

Sure I will miss U Karabo and good luck to your future endeavours!!!

Didnt she do Fana Mokoena as well?

and dont forget Khaphela they dated for a minute....lol

to be honest the real reason I watch is to at least see Senzo's behind cause even his acting is leaving a lot to be desired

This is when i say "ezibuhlungu azipheli"...damn, what would be gen without this classy lady, atleast usakhona Queen, once she also make up her mind and join Connie, dat would be the end of gen, mark my word. mfund, u better hold on to Queen if u know what best for you, in every where queen is, always brings humour and laughter.  Its wont be easy after karabo has gone but we will get used to it.

28 Jul 2010 16:14

It's so sad that she's leaving, I loved her character very much, at least we still have Queen (Sophie), Sbusiso (Menzi) and Kenneth (Sputla). They are the only people who make me watch Generation this days, I think the writers and producers have ran out of ideas. Lest I forget, The guy who play Lungile, is not the first time he plays in Generation, he played a while ago, although I cannot remember his name back then, but he was once a bad guy always riding his motorbike and was in love with Thembi (character played by Florence Masebe) and Thembi then, was married to Sonny who later married Baba (Rina Nienaber), correct me if I'm wrong, you've totally lost it guys, come on get your act together, I don't forget that easily.

Well well well, its about time she left I mean she was starting to be a boring character in Generations and well what can we say apart from every man that came to the show was set to be her Boyfriend first, so we have a Brook of our own. She was made out to be a SLUT and I think she needs to move on out and let new talent step in. No hard feelings Cons but you have played your part and I was staring to hate you with all the drama between you, Dineo, Paul and Lungile. So go take care of your own real man and stop being the woman of all man on Generations.
