Due to the popularity of his Hausa-themed sketches that went viral online, Kamal has amassed a sizable following on TikTok.
On his journey back to Kano, he was involved in a horrifying car accident that claimed his life.
Usman, his older brother, expressed how his family was shaken by Kamal’s passing and how much he will be missed.
He said: “On Monday, my mother asked me to call Kamal around 5 pm, and he said he was already inside a vehicle to Kano. Then, my mother started feeling somehow.
“Later, someone called me to ask if I had someone travelling from Maiduguri to Kano, and I told the person yes. It was at that point the caller broke the news of what happened to me.
“He is always joking and playing with people. Everyone will miss him.”
