Local comedian Zaibo, who was battling stage four esophageal cancer, died today (Nov 14) at 1.30pm. He was 62.

His wife Siti Hawa Sawal confirmed the news to mStar, The Star‘s Malay-language portal.

“Abang Zaibo is no more … please pray for him,” she says.

Zaibo is best known for his roles in 1990s series like Malaysia’s Spanar Jaya and Singapore’s Under One Roof.

In an interview in September, Zaibo told Star2 that he accepted what God had in store for him.

“In the last five years, six of my secondary school friends have passed away. If it is fated that it is my turn, what is so unusual about it? … If I meet my creator, it is not because of cancer. I told myself, ‘My fate is in God’s hands’.”
