Cape Town – Monday night the new drama The Queen made its debut on Mzansi Magic (Dstv 161).

The new telenovela by power couple Connie and Shona Ferguson is a high stakes drama which centres on a wealthy family and their illicit business.

Including the Fergusons it has an all star cast: Sello Maake Ka-Ncube, Sthembiso “SK” Khoza, Natasha Thahane, Mara Louw, Themba Ndaba, Shona Ferguson, Mbali Nkosi, Dineo Moeketsi, Loyiso MacDonald, Zenzo Ngqobe, Zandile Msutwana and Slindile Nodangala.

In no time the drama was trending on Twitter. 

Episode 1 started off with a bang and a hot car. 



The 'villain', Shaka made a lasting first impression especially when we found out he was part of the family.







Everyone was mad that the daughter's wedding day was interrupted by business. And who tells their daughter how much the groom's family paid for lobola?!















And then the dad was gunned down at the wedding reception. #worsttvweddingdayever








That crying scene had everyone really sad and super impressed by the actresses acting skills. 









But the best part of the entire episode was the twist. The mom had the dad killed!








The story and the production got a big thumbs up.





We can't wait for episode two tonight!
