Veteran actor Patrick Shai committed suicide a few days ago barely a week after he insulted Cassper Nyovest’s mother when he was challenging the rapper for a boxing match.

Patrick Shai’s son posted on Facebook following his father’s swearing at Cassper Nyovest. Three days before his father’s death Kopano Shai took to Facebook to express how disappointed he was by his father’s actions.

Kopano accused his father of being selfish, careless and of embarrassing the family. He said the distasteful video put the family in a compromising position.

The post was deleted on his page. He wrote on Facebook,


“You may have seen videos that have been going around of my dad and and and…

I understand the impact that it has on him as a brand equally on myself as an established brand.

His actions of carelessness and selfishness has put myself and family under a compromising position.

The embarrassment is so severe to a point of no expression. I’m where I’m am asking myself questions like,”what happens to the doors I’m knocking on?”.

I type this text highly emotional with teary eyes. To some it may be funny and to some of you understand the severity of pain and embarrassment my family is in.

For the calls and texts of encouragement. Thank you”.
