Connie Ferguson is no stranger to Amapiano and breaking it down on the dance floor, as a true fitness fanatic and she has been sharing her workouts on Social Media and the 50-year-old sure knows how to break a sweat in the gym. On the 1st of June, Connie shared a video of herself, Shona Ferguson and their daughter Alicia having a little fun in the gym after a workout.
“Entering my birth month like “siyabangena!” Golden Jubilee I see you!”
It is clear that the Fergusons love the Amapiano genre when working out or just having fun, their teenage daughter Alicia seems to be the one who keeps the family up to date with the latest dance moves and music. The Yanos are clearly for everyone, regardless of age, it seems clear that they will be the genre for Festive groove this year instead of Gqom.
