The official page of Chef Osama El-Sayed announced on Facebook that he passed away after a struggle with illness.
The news was a surprise to many, especially those whose childhood was associated with it, and the page has not yet announced the date of the funeral and consolation.
Chef Osama had been inactive on social media since last September, and his absence caused controversy and anxiety among his followers, and the last thing he published was a will, "My loved ones.. Beautiful and a sweet memory during our journey together, share with me your memories and attitudes and do not forget me to pray.”
"I miss your comments and interaction, and I know that I fall short in communicating with you, but God knows how much I love and protect you and the difficulty of communicating in the recent period, since I started on radio and television and then through social media platforms, my goal was to enter happiness and pleasure and share with you everything I know and learn to be a part of your daily life and serve humanity."
He concluded his message by thanking the followers for their love and prayers.
