Vusa Thanda went on to describe Shona Ferguson as a loving man. He said that Shona and Connie Ferguson respected him and referred to him using in different words such as papa, father, and daddy.
He thanked the Fergusons for supporting him saying that he appreciates everything they did for him.
On the flip side, Vusi Thanda hogged the limelight recently after a heartrending video of him brandishing his card, begging people to help him went viral.
Nozuko MaRhadebe Habe shared a Facebook post about Vusi Thanda, asking people to lend as little as R10 for The Queen actor.
“Life is not easy for him. At times you need to go to the clinic for treatment. I will ask him to make a video with his account number to avoid a scam.”
The actor’s financial troubles arose from the lack of acting roles. He appeared on The Queen in 2020 and last performed in 2021 in a Moja Love production, Ikhaya Labadala.
The videos elicited an outpouring of sympathy from well-wishers who are still donating to the actor.
South Africans came through for him and he received donations worth more than R100k.
“Ndifuna ubulela abantu bonke nge ncebakazi engaka. [I want to thank those who donated for such generosity]. Their donations have reached R100,000, and I am thankful for that. I don’t care about those who have criticised me for asking for help from the public. These are people who called themselves friends but they were not there when I needed them. Some of them knew my situation, but they never assisted me.”
