This is sad news that Issa Doumbia shared this Sunday, May 28. On his Instagram account, the comedian announced the death of his father. "How am I going to do without you?" he writes, accompanying his words with a photograph where they pose together.

"My best friend, my advisor, my protector! Who will look at me like that! My little father what were we laughing! You've always been there for me and I can't thank you enough! We will no longer be able to call or see each other... We will meet in our prayers! I love you Mahamadou Seydou DOUMBIA I swore you were a very good father!" reads the post. His father was a teacher in Mali before he was born, but for lack of equivalence once he arrived in France, he had to leave his profession aside, as Issa Doumbia confided recently in "A Sunday in the Country".
A source of inspiration
His father was a source of inspiration for Issa Doumbia as he declared last November in "La Boîte à questions" on Canal +. He was then promoting his comic strip Le Petit Issa, whose hero is inspired by his childhood. "When I was little, I always wanted to do like the grown-ups and my father scammed me. He scammed me very well because even today it serves me, "he recalls before citing a specific example. With malice, his father first challenged him to know how to iron. Little Issa then replied with pride "how am I'm not going to know how to do it?". Once the household technique was learned, his father would have retorted: "Great, now you are a man, you will be able to iron your laundry alone", before handing him the pile of complete laundry. An educational scam and especially a tender memory for the comedian.
