MANILA -- Singer-comedian Blakdyak was found dead inside his condominium unit in Sampaloc, Manila on Monday. 

According to the police, Blakdyak's son found the lifeless comedian at around 6 p.m. 

His head was covered with a plastic bag. 

Police have not determined whether there was foul play in the comedian's death. They were still investigating as of posting. 

A native of Zambales, Blakdyak, or Joseph Formoran Amoto in real life, is the singer behind famous '90s novelty hits, such as "Modelong Charing," "Noon At Ngayon," and "Asin At Paminta." 

He was married to Twinkle Estanislao with whom he has four children. 

In 2014, he made headlines after he was arrested for malicious mischief, alarm and scandal, and illegal possession of drug paraphernalia in his apartment in Cubao. 

Despite this, the comedian was able to pick himself up and resume his career. 

He headlined shows and gigs, and was collaborating with veteran composer Lito Camo for a new album. -- report from Hajji Kaamiño, DZMM
