This by far is one of the most terrible things I have ever had to post in the short time I have been doing so here on Faygoluvers. Anyone who has ever been to an old school Kottonmouth Kings show knows that Pakelika, with his trademark mask, and crazy pop locking dance skills was often the one who stole the show on stage. We posted a few hours ago that he was in ICU and in critical condition. It is with a very sad heart that we report that he has passed away. Kottonmouth Kings posted the following on their Facebook page.
It is with saddened hearts we have heard that Pakelika has passed away-May his soul Rest in peace-Thanks for all the years&All the memories,respect Kmk
Rest In Peace Pak… You will be sorely missed.
Pakelika’s personal manager has released the following statement to the public in regards to Pakelika’s cause of death:
