Ugandan Comedian Hassan Lumu, better known by his stage name King Kong has reportedly passed on.
King Kong, who became a social media sensation for his comic dance moves, is said to have breathed his last at a clinic in Kanyanya in Kawempe Division.
Galazy FM where the comedian worked, revealed that King King succumbed to Malaria, and had been down since Eid al Fitr.
The station also quoted a family member saying the comedian had also complained of pain in the limbs before he was hospitalized.
King Kong’s Manager Eve Mbabazi said the comedian would “surely be missed.”
“It was a great opportunity to have met and worked with you. You became a friend and a brother to me and my family,” she posted on social media.
“Our condolences go to your family relatives and friends.”
