While many South Africans have come to terms with the fact that a slew of celebrities have not passed away in recent years, the peace has now been disturbed by the death of yet another well-known actor, who has been believed to have died. According to the Sunday World, the well-known actor Patrick Shai apparently committed suicide earlier on Saturday at his home in Los Angeles. According to a family acquaintance, this is something that has come to light.
Considering that his name was recently trending on social media due to his wish to try and fight Cassper Nyovest, this comes as a huge surprise. The following is the complete report from the Sunday Sun:
"Patrick Shai, a legendary actor from Soweto, is said to have committed suicide in the garage of his home in Dobsonville, Johannesburg.
An unnamed family friend, who did not want to be identified for fear of retaliation, broke the news of his suicide, which would send shockwaves across the continent."
Despite the fact that this individual, who wishes to stay anonymous, has not revealed his or her identity, the family of the perpetrator has not yet released a statement to verify that, in fact, he or she has committed suicide. A statement from the family will be released to confirm the details of this development.
This comes as a complete surprise given the fact that the actor appeared to be content with all of his television gigs. Even when he jokingly requested to fight Casper Nyovest, no one suspected that he was going through a difficult time, despite the fact that some on social media said that he was broke and in desperate need of cash. This comes as a huge surprise and a huge blow to the South African entertainment industry, which may have just lost another iconic actor as a result of this development.
