Cantor had been hospitalized for about a month and ended up not resisting; the artist’s children manifested themselves on social networks
The singer Genival Lacerda died this Thursday, 7, after contracting Covid-19 and spend about a month in the hospital. As disclosed by the artist’s press office, he was admitted to the hospital in November and, while undergoing treatment against the disease, he even presented a clinical improvement, but ended up not resisting. Paraiba was 68 years old and became known throughout Brazil as Rei da Munganga. The unique style of singing and the humor that he impressed in his songs became a trademark of the Northeasterner who pumped all over the country with Severina Xique Xique e Cell Radinho. Other successes of the artist’s career were Kill Véio e I wish, which took first place on Brazilian radio for a few years. Genival Lacerda Filho posted on social media: “Painho passed away”.
João Lacerda, another son of the artist, posted a tribute to his father: “Today I lost one of the greatest friends of my life, a friend of music, of teaching, a friend who always fought, and minutes later he didn’t even remember fighting, because he didn’t keep nobody’s hurt. My guardian angel, my Light, my life, today he made his last trip to be with the Lord God. Just yesterday I remember your smile, shaking your hand! Now I will have to learn to live with his image, and memories of a good father. Go in peace, my father, I will always love you, your João Lacerda ”.
