Oh, what a ride it’s been. We’ve literally been watching Cornet Mamabolo grow as an actor and talent on SABC 1’s Skeem Saam for the past few years. Now we say goodbye with the hopes of falling in love with his next character on another big show if he's still to pursue acting.
Mamabolo’s stint on Skeem Saam as Tbose has turned him into one of the most loved and popular characters on television, gaining a huge fan base, a great reputation in the acting industry and a great friend - his former on-screen best friend Clement Maosa. Did you know that he almost didn’t make the cut after he couldn't make it to his second call-back audition? We're grateful to have been able to watch him grow on our screens every weekday.
Skeem Saam fans suffered a huge loss on Tuesday evening after Tbose was killed by his niece Noah, played by Austin Mothapo, after finding out the truth about his involvement in the gang that robbed the Maputla supermarket.
Taking to Instagram after the show, the actor uploaded a picture with his former on-screen family saying that he was officially signing out from the show. He wrote: “As I drop the MIC...it’s been GREAT!!!"
Meanwhile, tweeps and fans were having trouble coming to terms with the death of his character.
