Cornet Mamabolo Takes A Break From Skeem Saam and Here Is Why. He is one of the original cast members of Skeem Saam who started with the show back in October, 2011. A decade later, Cornet Mamabolo is taking a break from the SABC1 hit drama to focus on other things.
The 31 year old actor was cast as Thabo “TBose” Maputla, one of the favorite characters on the show. From a mischievous high school student to a married family man, TBose has definitely grown with the show. He recently discovered that his best friend from years back, Zamokuhle Seakamela (Clement Maosa) is his half brother, a revelation that almost damaged their friendship. The two have since sorted out their differences, and are back at being best buddies.
Tbose has also just married his long-term girlfriend Mapitsi Magongwa (Mogau Motlhatswi). At their honeymoon, Tbose got a job offer to work oversees, and he took it with open arms. Tuesday evening was the last day viewers will see the character onscreen, as Cornet takes a break. He will now be focusing on his insurance business, which he normally pushes on social media.
Cornet thanked everyone for all the support they have given him all these 10 years. He also extended his gratitude to Winnie, SABC, as well as the cast and crew of Skeem Saam. We wish him all the best, and hope to see him soon.
