Sompisi was reportedly found lying on the floor just outside his house in Lamont, south of Durban.

According to Daily Sun, Nelisiwe Nxumalo, Sompisi’s relative, ‘the famous mkhulu’ is suspected to have died while trying to reach for his asthma medication.

The 65-year-old became a household name after appearing in a KFC advert, and after he got a role in Generations where he played the mentally ill character of Sompisi.
