Actor Cornet Mamabolo shocked many when he announced his departure from Skeem Saam this week. He revealed that he wanted to dedicate his time to his insurance company and he hasn’t wasted any time.
Today alone, the actor has already posted two premiums from his business that anyone could sign up for. His offices are based in Sandton, Gauteng. He opened Digni Financial Services in 2014.
After his last episode, Mamabolo penned a heartfelt message on social media announcing his break from our television screens. He thanked the viewers for the support that they have shown him over the years.
“This is my official break from your screens as Tbose Maputla… thanks for all the support you have shown me over the years, I mean I literally matured to be the man I’m today before your eyes. This is a break for me to primarily focus on my insurance business; Digni Financial Services @dignifinancialservices Thanks Sis Winnie, SABC, cast & Crew for carrying me over the years. Till we meet again.”
Die-hard viewers of the educational drama were delighted to know that he was not living for good and would one day make a return. It has not been specified when T’Bose will officially return but he will make an appearance toward the end of October.
The star also shared what appeared to be an official statement from Skeem Saam about his exit. It states that he will be focusing on his personal interests. Mainly his insurance company.
“From the 14th of September 2021, Cornet Mamabolo will be taking a break from Skeem Saam to focus on his personal interests. His decision comes at a time where he intends on making his insurance company the first priority during his interval.” Read the statement.
Cornet was quoted as saying that he will be exploring his opportunities as an entrepreneur. “I have been consistent in giving my fans pieces of myself through ThaboMaputla’s role and I will continue to do so when I return. But for now, I appreciate being given the opportunity to focus on what will make me grow further as an entrepreneur.”
Cornet’s co-star Clement Maosa, who’s also into business, has revealed that Cornet is the reason he took that risk and he thanks him for that.
“Transitioning from arts to corporate was another brave move I learned from you. 10years later it only makes sense and I know there is still so much more to offer. Embrace growth and continue knowing that we are for the people as prophesied before we even got our breakthrough in the industry, continue maturing and naturing your gift.” He said about his best friend on his 31st birthday.
