Many families rely on him for a living as he has more employees working full-time in his Digni Company. He has already build and donated a library to a school in Limpopo.
As for his success this is what Cornet said on his Facebook page “The beautiful thing about this craft is that I’m able to live in worlds that my own personal reality can never afford me. It is that imagined world & reality that feed my soul. What is more beautiful about it is the ability to live truthfully & believe to an extend that the audience is touched in the comfort of their home,
“It is this moment that an actor believes, takes direction & LIVE in the writer’s world truthfully, words and acting becomes a reality… many die having not explored the complexity of their imagination & creativity. You must be a fool to let a person convince you otherwise about your journey.”
