JOHANNESBURG – Koyo Bala, a member of the music group 3sum, died at a hospital in Cape Town on Monday morning, according to Sowetan Live.
Bala was diagnosed with anal cancer in 2013 and was very open about having the disease and determined to fight it at all costs.
Sowetan Live spoke to Bala’s friend "Ephymol" Molingoana who said that he had stayed positive and strong throughout his illness.
The pop group 3sum initially had three members. Jeff Moyo died in 2010 and the death of Bala leaves only Amstel Maboa still living.
