KUALA LUMPUR: Comedian Osman Kassim or better known as Osman Kering died of tuberculosis Friday.

Osman, 58, breathed his last at 3.45pm at the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Medical Centre in Cheras here.

The comedian, who hailed from Pauh Lima, Kelantan, left behind a wife, Che Norhayati Che Omar, 48, seven children and three grandchildren.

His daughter, Norhidayah Osman, said her father had lived with the disease for quite some time before his condition worsened and was admitted to the medical centre on June 11.

The remains would be taken to Al Najihin Mosque in Bandar Sri Permaisuri for funeral prayers before being laid to rest at the Bukit Tandang Muslim cemetery in Petaling Jaya later Friday.

Osman had also co-starred in several films, including 'Kantoi', 'Senario The Movie Episode 1', 'Tentang Bulan' and 'Man Laksa.

Norhidayah said during his last few days at the hospitals, her father had told her to take good care of her mother and how he dreamt about his friends who had passed away.

"My father told me that he dreamt about the late actors, M. Rajoli and Zami Ismail, and that they had a good chat," she said.

Meanwhile, singer Nana, or her real name Siti Nordiana Alias, said Osman Kering that she knew was a very sporting comedian.

"He thought me a lot about being in the entertainment industry and I also know his family well. His death is indeed a very big loss," she added. - Bernama
