The country is still in shock. Thousands of fans, followers and those who simply loved him refuse to believe that Shona Ferguson, or Uncle Sho to some, is gone.
But it's even more so for his wife, Connie Ferguson, who called this period a nightmare.
No one understands this better than someone who has also gone through it. While people never grieve the same, some celebrities who have lost husbands have sent words of comfort to Connie after she penned a note to her husband.
Media personality and reality star, Ayanda Ncwane, who lost her husband, gospel singer Sfiso Ncwane in 2016, penned a heartfelt tribute to Connie.
Sharing a picture of the late Shona in Connie's arms, Ayanda wrote: "Dear Connie Ferguson, nobody and nothing is going to be said to you today that will make sense. The numbness, the death of your inner self, your world coming to a standstill, your heart tearing up into pieces. Begging him to come back to life…… Ohhh Sisi the only thing I wanna do is to squeeze you sooo tight and let you screeeeeam so loud!!!!".
TV presenter Kayise Nolufefe Ngqula, who lost her husband two years ago, took to the comments section to share her experience. "As I read this, I’m taken back to the day you sat beside me and told me the same thing. I didn’t believe I could ever get through the pain or live to see the sun shine again but you assured me I would. We can stand in the gap knowing for her that someday, just not today, that it will make sense again.”
