South African Gay Singer, Koyo Bala, Dies of Anal Cancer


After a 3-year battle with anal cancer‚ popular South African musician, Koyo Bala, died around 9:00am on Monday at Groote Schuur Hospital in Cape Town, surrounded by his three sisters.
 
The 36-year-old singer was part of pop gay trio, 3Sum - a pop band comprised of Bala‚ Amstel Maboa and the deceased Jeff Moyo, who had a hit with 'Butterfly'. They were known in the entertainment industry as activists for gay rights.

 
According to his cousin, Linda Bala‚ the gay musician was "admitted to hospital on Sunday around 4:00pm after he complained about pain". This was 2 hours since landing in Cape Town from a trip to Johannesburg‚ where he was staying with his long-term friend and group member‚ Maboa.


In 2011‚ Bala disclosed that he was HIV-positive to the country‚ a decision that cost him his job. In 2014 he was diagnosed with anal cancer and decided to move back home last year where he started chemotherapy - a journey he widely shared in images‚ videos and messages with his social media followers.

 
His last tweet about his illness was on February reads: "I pray 2 God everyday 2 help me pass this cancer #itshard #pains #wontgiveup #canwinthisbattle #cantsleepofpains".
