Pokwang thought Chokoleit’s death was fake news
Kapamilya comedienne Pokwang initially thought that the death of her friend and fellow comedy star Chokoleit was fake news.
Chokoleit died after her performance in Abra last March 9. Born as Jonathan Garcia, the late comedian was able to pave his way from comedy bars to TV shows and movies.
Losing someone like him in the industry is such a painful event for his friends and fellow comedians.
Pokwang was one of the closest friends of Chokoleit in show business. That is why the comedienne did not easily accept that she will no longer see the godfather of her daughter Malia.
Based on Pang-Masa’s article, the Pokie initially thought that the death of her friend was fake news.
She shared that they were in Batangas when the news reached her. The comedian said that she woke up due to the multitude of messages she received.

“Tapos, sunod-sunod na. May text si Angelica (Panganiban), may text si Vice (Ganda), si Pooh, si K (Brosas), sabi ko, ‘ano ‘to?’ Hindi ko alam kung ano ang sasabihin ko, kasi wala akong idea. Tsinek ko ‘yung social media, Twitter, Facebook, my God! Tapos, tumawag sa akin si K, iyak na ng iyak si K, si Angelica,” the comedienne shared.
She had to cry silently with the thought that her daughter might hear it. Then, she hoped that it was all fake news.
“’Yung iyak ko, impit na impit kasi, ‘yung baby, baka magising. Sabi ko, ‘ano ‘to’ sabi ko, sana, joke lang, alam mo ‘yun, ‘yung fake news?” Pokwang said, based on the article.
The comedienne also shared that she and Chokie still had a lot of plans regarding their shows together but the sad truth strikes her that it will no longer happen.
