Considering the level of Afia Schwarzenegger’s popularity, the event is expected to be witnessed by many celebrities, friends, and fans of the comedienne who will throng the venue to mourn with the bereaved.

The showbiz personality reiterated the daunting task involved in handling her father’s situation in a video-making round on the internet.

“Whenever I have to do basic chores for my father like bath him, change his diaper, and put him to sleep, it makes me sad. It makes me really sad. I wonder what we are living for in this world. It makes me really sad. It breaks my heart and I become helpless,” she said.
