The Queen's Thabiso pulled off an impossible feat before getting shot - he jumped over an electric fence. When fans started to complain that it was not realistic for him to survive that, Connie Ferguson gave an explanation - Eskom!
The Queen is one of Mzansi's most-loved soaps and the show knows how to deliver what viewers want. Behind the show are Connie and Shona Ferguson, who are greatly admired for their work.
One thing that stands out about the Fergusons is that they actually interact with fans of their TV shows.
There was one episode that had fans questioning how legit a scene was and Connie quickly explained what happened.
It was when Thabiso jumped over an electric fence and survived. Yes, he did get shot, but that wasn't the point right then.
Viewers felt cheated because that's not realistic, but Connie told fans that Eskom was to blame.
The show's fans loved the fact that Connie used a real South African problem and involved it in their show.
