They often say a person's last days on earth can be sensed especially because many think their behaviour is telling. When it comes to Patrick, he made a video directed at Cassper saying before he dies, he wants to wrestle the rapper.

What people saw, was an actor looking for clout but it turns out it might have been a cry for help. But days after the whole uproar, his own son Kopano Shai took to Facebook and dragged his father for that "publicity stunt" and called it an embarrassment to the family.

Daily Sun shared deleted Facebook posts from Kopano who put his own father on blast for his message directed at Cassper Nyovest. “Before I die I want to make sure that I’ve beat you so that on my tombstone they can write this is the man who beat Caster or Costa or whatever your sh*t name is … Come you son of a b***h,” he said to Cassper.

According to Kopano, the stunt placed him as well as the Shai family, "in a compromising position."

“You may have seen the videos that have been going around about my dad...I understand the impact that it has on him as a brand equally on myself as an establishing brand. His actions of carelessness and selfishness has put myself and family under a compromising position.

“The embarrassment is severe to a point of no expression. I’m where I am asking myself questions like 'what happened to the doors I’m knocking on?'

“I type this highly emotional with teary eyes. To some it may be funny and some of you under the severity of pain and embarrassment my family is in,” he said before concluding his letter by thanking people for the support. 

This was apparently posted just 3 days before his death. After the family announced his passing, Kopano posted, “Above everything else, he’s my papa. Rest in peace Jita.”
