Ate Shawee, born Marvin Martinez, recently passed away. He was 45.
Many from showbiz mourned the death of the stand-up comedian.
Among them is his manager Freddie Bautista.
“Isa na namang nakakalungkot na balita. Pumanaw ngayon ang # 1 Impersonator ni Mega Star Sharon Cuneta na si Marvin Martinez a.k.a. ATE SHAWEE. Maraming maraming salamat sa Sa Raket, Bonding at magagandang samahan. Ate Shawee, mami-miss ka namin. Gone to soon. I am shocked right now.”
Prior, Ate Shawee’s relative asked for financial assistance through an article published on PEP.ph.
According to the report, the comedian was rushed to the Chinese General Hospital due to liver cirrhosis.
Currently, the family are asking for help to give Ate Shawee a proper send-off.
“Pinag-iisipan pa po namin kung sa barangay hall o sa Dulce Funeral Homes siya ibuburol kasi po wala na po talaga kaming pambayad na pera,” Rafaela de Jesus said.
“Sana po, makalikom kami ng pera para pambayad sa Dulce. Sana, may mga tumulong po para mabigyan siya ng maayos na burol hanggang sa huli.”
