Known for his role as Gunman on youth drama series, Yizo Yizo, Chris Khubeka garnered a large following due to this specific role.
In the late hours of Monday morning, social media users were shocked to hear of the sudden passing of Chris Khubeka.
It's alleged that the actor passed away at his home in Soshanguve, Pretoria.
Viewers hardly request for the repeat of shows on TV as there are so many of these shows that are repeated anyway. However, after hearing of the passing of Chris, fans of Yizo Yizo requested for SABC to repeat the youth drama series in honor of the late actor.
Can SABC 1 bring back yizo yizo just to honour Gunman😢 #ripgunman— IG: SIBS_MAHLANGU (@Sibs_Mahlangu) June 13, 2017
It's only been a week since Emzini Wezinsizwa actor, Washington Sixolo passed away and now the nation mourns yet another talented actor.
Chris is the second actor we know from Yizo Yizo who has since passed away. Tshepo Ngwane aka Tshiza from the show passed away in 2015 as well.
Our condolences to the Khubeka family.
