Comedian Coolaide has died after a battle with cancer. The stand-up comedian, who was popular in his hometown of Detroit, Michigan, was performing shows in October this year before his illness took a turn for the worse.

His friend and fellow comedian Lil Duval led the tributes joking that the late comedian asked god to let the Dallas Cowboys beat the Philadelphia Eagles. 

Cool-Aide performed in various venues in Detroit and surrounding areas in the state of Michigan. He appeared on BET Comic View and Season 1 of Bill Bellamy’s Who’s Got Jokes. 

Tributes flood in from fans and colleagues of the late comedian. 

Coolaide has been battling cancer for about five years; however, it has not been reported which type of cancer he suffered from.  

In a heart-wrenching statement, Lil Duval describes visiting the late comedian in the ICU before performing a show later that night.  

Duval stated that he played his hit song Smile Bitch as the comedian laid unconscious. In the Instagram post, Lil Duval says that Coolaide squeezed his hand when the hook for the song started playing and revealed that he was the inspiration behind the record.
