The Many Sides of Cobra

14 February 2019
Looking back at some of Cobra's many personalities.

Sometimes it’s funny, other times it’s sad. But whichever way you choose to look at him, Cobra brings charisma, fun and laughter whether he’s with his friends in Refilwe or his family.

Here are a few of the many personalities of Cobra.

Cobra the family guy

Don’t try and play man of the house in the Mokoena residence because Cobra will remind you who’s the real Mr Mokoena. Who can ever forget the time Walter was hitting on Malefu? Cobra had his eye on Walter’s every move and lest to say, he wasn’t having any of it.

Cobra the lover

Who isn’t a sucker for a beautiful love story? We all are, and Cobra and Paulina’s relationship is what many relationships are made of. Cobra loves his sweet, sweet Paulina and isn’t afraid to show it. In fact, the two love each other so much that even during the worst times, they’ll fight their way back into each other’s arms again.

We were over the moon when Cobra proposed to Paulina, and although they never went through with the wedding, we hope that 2019 will unite the two and bring mini Cobrizzi’s into the picture.


Cobra the father

If there’s one thing that surprised us with Cobra, was the time we found out that he is a baby daddy. Not only was anybody ready for the baby news, but we were shocked when he came to the party. He immediately fell in love with baby Keitumetse and handled his responsibilities like a man.

Cobra the businessman

Cobra doesn’t have much going for him when it comes to his career. But when he’s presented with an opportunity, he grabs it with both hands and runs with it. Plus, when he pulls out his “Egyptian cotton”, everyone must know that he’s about to be Refilwe’s next Patrice Motsepe.

Cobra the fun guy

Where there’s Cobra there’s the bev and laughter all around.

And let’s not forget his hilarious phrases. Which is your favourite? Have your pick in the poll below.
