Beloved Comedic Actor Johnny Fleurinord well-known as Tonton Nord passed away this morning Thursday July 28, 2011 in a hospital in Gonaives, Haiti from “complications due to Kidney ailment,” a source told Movie Lakay. He was 36. No other details were available and his manager asked that his family’s privacy be respected.
Tonton Nord’s career started in 2000 when he called a radio station and began to speak like an old man. “Actually it was my grandfather I was portraying”, he told Belfim. He told a lot of jokes on the air, then hung up the phone. So many people loved the old-man’s voice that the director of the radio station offered him free air-time for his own comedy show.
