Actor Shona Ferguson's death has brought up a lot of emotions for him. 

Actor Nay Maps, real name Nkosinathi Maphalala, recently opened up about the brotherly relationship he had with the late producer.

Shona passed away on Friday, 30 July due to Covid-19 complications. 

Nay Maps says he's battling to deal with the death as Shona was more than just an employer. His death reminded him of the loss of his father. 

Nay Maps lost his father in July last year.

He shared how Shona had supported his clothing brand and vowed that he would be a loyal customer. In their last conversation, Nay Maps says Shona was excited for his return to The Queen and was looking forward to the magic they would create once again.

“This reminds me of Dad passing on this exact month of July this time last year. The last conversation we had was just a few weeks ago on how you were excited about the return of my character on The Queen and how I was looking forward to making new magic with you and seeing you again.

“Iv spent hours scrolling through my entire photo library to try find at least one picture of you and I and realised that of all the times we’ve chatted and spent together and worked together - I never bothered to take a pic with you as I didn’t think I’d one day miss being next to you,” he posted.

He says he hasn’t been able to sleep properly since the day of Shona’s passing.

“You are Love Personified. You have been an example of “action speaks louder than words”. You lived out every single word of wisdom and advice you shared with me and the world.”
