Comedian Chokoleit Tributes
In a statement, Star Magic said: “Details are still being gathered. Chokoleit was performing in an out of town show in Abra, and experienced difficulty in breathing after his performance.”
His fellow comedian Vice Ganda led the tributes, writing on Twitter: “Thank you Lord for giving me a chance to meet Chokoleit and become his friend. I’m sad that we lost him.”
“But happy that he’ll be in a much peaceful and happier place now with you. Thanks for everything Chokie. I love you!”
Chokoleit Facebook Video
In a video posted on Facebook by the provincial government of Abra just hours before the news broke, Chokoleit was seen performing at a show called Kawayan Festival 2019.
He sang “Kahit Maputi na ang Buhok Ko,” before drawing laughs and applause with his stand-up quips –one being an eerie one about the crowd might not get to see him if he went out from the backstage last– before the video was cut off.
Carl Guevarra of local band The Juans, an act who performed before Chokoleit went up on stage, described some of the comedian’s final moments on Facebook.
He wrote: “Unbelievable. Chokoleit performed right after our set and we witnessed how he struggled through the entire performance. The ambulance rushed him to the hospital in Vigan but now we were informed he didn’t make it and passed away. We are all in shock. Prayers to all his loved ones. RIP”
