Businesswoman and TV personality Connie Ferguson left fans stunned after she shared a video of her father working out. In the video, the 85-year-old is seen doing sit-ups. Captioning the video, Connie wrote, “Inspiration IS a person!😬🤞🏾 Shout out to my Pops, Sensei Fish Tuelo Masilo, who will be 86 in May!😍 I absolutely have no excuse right?😂🤷🏽♀️ Blessed Thursday good people
Fans and other celebrities have since taken to the comments section to react to the video. Kankomo wrote: “you have to meet him to believe it… Used to train with him way back when he was in his mid-70s…he goes hard… You should watch him do a kata… Clean as a blade.”
Connie has always been vocal about the love she has for her father. In her previous post, she said that her father is the biggest advocate for self-care.
The actress added that she is grateful that her father is still strong at his age, “I thank God for your life Papa! I thank God that at 85, you have all your wits about you! You’re still sharp, still smart, still funny, still wise, and still strong! Your happiness today filled my cup! I have been recharged! And I promise to continue making you proud so you may want to live and continue to sing God’s praises and glorify His name! Love you Pops!”
The Queen star lost her mother back in 2013. Paying tribute to her late mom on Instagram, she said: “Moms, I will never stop loving you. Never stop missing you. I cherish all the memories I have of you. Sometimes your physical absence doesn’t feel real. Sometimes I think it’s all a dream, that I’ll wake up to a text message from you first thing in the morning. Those were my favorite. I believe with all my being that you have been most present in your absence, that you are advocating for us on the other side, cheering us on, and celebrating our successes.”
