MANILA, Philippines -- Host-comedian Vice Ganda chose to attend the wake of King of Comedy Dolphy at ABS-CBN instead of attending at American rapper-songwriter Nicki Minaj concert at SM Mall of Asia Arena on Wednesday night.

"In respect to the death of the Comedy King, I decided not to go to the Nicki Minaj event later anymore. Not a good time to party," Vice Ganda said.

Ganda is popular for dancing to "Super Bass," one of the hits of Minaj.

"Lord we thank you for giving us THE DOLPHY who unselfishly and passionately dedicated his whole life to make this world happy. Amen," Vice Ganda tweeted on Tuesday night.

On Wednesday night, Vice Ganda with his friend Kris Aquino attended the mass and eulogy for the King of Comedy.

The event was also attended by Ryan Bang and Vhong Navarro, co-hosts of Ganda on ABS-CBN's noontime show "It's Showtime."
