Eusebio’s TikTok channel has over 800,000 followers at the time of writing and almost 18m likes on his videos.

The Dub King passed after contracting typhoid fever.

It was confirmed on Tuesday, May 16 that the Dub King had died, with a friend reporting the tragic news to GMA Network.

He had passed away the day before, May 15, due to a severe case of typhoid fever, an illness caused by salmonella bacteria, commonly spread through contaminated food and water.

The TikTok star was reportedly in and out of hospital with his illness, before his passing on May 15. Typhoid is uncommon in most developed countries, but is sadly still a huge problem across certain parts of Asia, Africa, and further afield.
