    true sam was a good actor, not world class but good, but the poor fellow was an addict, i have it on good authority that he was addicted to codiene and barbituates so thats what becomes of the abuser.
    i’ll pray for his soul, may he pass easily through the gates of heaven.

    Sam Loco was a comedic inspiration and his death is a
    great loss to the African Film Industry.
    I’m inspired by him. His films are
    interesting and attractive. His acting
    also on friendly scene seemed as
    informative, educative and friendly. He made my heart very happy and joyful
    when I watched on TV. I’ll miss comedy
    films. May His Soul Rest In Peace With
    Our Creator.
