K Brosas reveals Chokoleit downplayed his illness

Singer-comedienne K Brosas revealed the late comedian Chokoleit has health problems but the latter did not pay much attention to it.

In an interview with PEP.ph during the first day of Chokoleit’s wake, Brosas said that Chokoleit was even hospitalized after a show that they did together after the latter also experienced difficulty in breathing.

Many fans were able to see Chokoleit’s final performance and they noticed that the comedian already was catching his breath. This, Brosas said, was something that they have already been aware of.

Lahat kami meron [ideya] kasi naospital na ‘yan before, di ba?

“After nung shows namin, diniretso ‘yan sa ospital.

“Sabi ko, ‘Bakla ka, huwag kang mamamatay sa eroplano, hindi nakakaartista.’

“Kasi yung napapanood niyo, ganun na ganun siya sa eroplano, dalawang tangke ng oxygen,” Brosas was quoted as saying.

Doctors said after Chokoleit’s first hospitalization that he was suffering from pneumonia.

“’Tapos yun, after nun, in fairness nung sa ospital, pneumonia na pala yun.

“Correct me if I’m wrong: kapag [may] tama ka na sa bagang ganun, magpapa-regular check-up ka na,” Brosas added.

The singer-comedienne also said that Chokoleit did not seek regular medical checkups and would even tire himself by working out at a gym even with his lung condition.

When asked to give a message to her departed friend, Brosas said: ““Bakit? Marami pa dapat tayong show.

“Hindi ko alam, lagi kong ipinagdadasal na sana makausap sa panaginip, baka may gusto kang gawin… Di ko alam… huling habilin. So, ngayon… di ko alam… Andun pa rin sa kwestyon na yun, bakit?”
