In other news related to Connie, Briefly.co.za reported that Connie recently reflected on her popular character on hit show Gomora. The veteran actress plays the role of Mam' Sonto on the popular telenovela.
Sonto is a strongly religious and streetwise woman from Alexandra. Her love for the finer things in life turned her into a car hijacking boss. The fan fave character also uses her shebeen as a front.
Even though people know that the shebeen can't be her only source of income, nobody has the guts to confront her. Connie explained that since Mzansi peeps realised that her character was no typical churchgoer, they've been sending her messages on social media and telling her about women in reality whom they suspect are also wolves in sheep's clothing.
