Skeem Saam’s Cornet Mamabolo and Clement Maosa have not always been the best of friends, but their on-screen brotherhood translated into their reality and they are now intertwined.
In celebration of Mamabolo’s birthday today, Maosa took to social media expressing his love for the actor, showing appreciation for their brotherhood and his life: “I chose this video because I was practising walking in heels for a character and you in solidarity joined and didn’t make it awkward according to popular believe [belief] but more so because you are my partner in crime …”
Cornet plays Tbose on Skeem Saam – Clement’s best friend. Their friendship has grown over the years, from enemies to the best of lads, to a point where Cornet named Clement his daughter’s godfather.
“…after so many years people call me cornet and call you clement, both our initials is MC at first art was the only commonality between us and the only language we both understood.
With time we became best buddies then family, on this day @cornetmamabolo I just wanna say thank you for being a brother. I have watched you grow into this wise respectable man you are and I comment [commend] you for defying the odds and setting new rules and standards.”
We fight like siblings but it’s all love and I know we’ve got each other’s back. You made me believe that we’re going to be rich – ra huma Le manala Le maboya a ka mahwafeng – and I see we are getting there. Happy birthday my poi…it’s going down this weekend, I’m afraid.” he wrote.
