Here is Mr Lee's Facebook post:

Rest in peace Victor Khoo.

Victor was a well-loved ventriloquist and entertainer. Very sad to learn that he passed away after a long battle with cancer. Victor and his puppet, Charlee, often performed at events I attended, and I always enjoyed the shows. Charlee was cheeky but remarkably well informed. Children loved Charlee, and listened faithfully to his radio show Happy Talk on Saturday mornings.

Victor was more than an entertainer. He contributed to society in many ways. After his first wife died several years ago, he did good work to support the breast cancer cause.

He will be missed by many Singaporeans. - LHL
