Former Generations Actor Patrick Shai commits suicide

Former Generations actor Patrick Shai has died. Reports indicate the veteran actor committed suicide. According to Sunday World, it is reported he committed suicide in his garage today.

Without a history of conflict, Patrick Shai went live to challenge rapper and businessman Cassper Nyovest to a boxing match. His motive is still unknown, but showbiz lovers believe he was looking to make money from the boxing match as Hip Hop commentator Slik Talk did last year.

After publishing the video, Shai became very unpopular with the words he used. He called Cassper the son of a b**tch, and fans believe it was uncalled for. The former actor went too far to create a hostile atmosphere for a boxing match.

Cassper responded a few hours later, shocked at how his family was involved in the fight and the words used against his mother. He seemed furious and ready to take action against the ageing actor. Shai realised the predicament he put himself into and apologised unreservedly to Mufasa.

Cassper reluctantly accepted the apology but laughed at how people struggling in their careers speak badly about him to get back their clout.

Patrick Shai spoke about his death in his address to Cassper Nyovest. People believe he was showing a sign no one paid attention to. Perhaps Patrick Shai knew he was going to commit suicide.

‘I want to beat you before i die i want people to write on my tombstone gore kele taima leli betileng Cassper Nyovest or whatever your name is’

He said he wanted to beat up Cassper Nyovest before he died; probably, he knew he wanted to take his own life soon.

Shai is famously known as Patrick Tlaole on Generations after joining the cast in 2000. In 2017, he joined 7de Laan and played the role of Jacob Moloi after appearing for many films and series in his illustrious career.

Condolences messages are pouring in for the veteran actor as fellow actors and fans have received the news with shock and sadness.
