South African gay singer dies of anal cancer

A 36 year old HIV positive South African singer, Koyo Bala, lost his two year battle with anal cancer yesterday March 7th. He was before his death a  part of a pop gay trio known as 3Sum who were known in the South African entertainment industry as activists for gay rights.
He had returned to Cape Town from Johannesburg on Sunday March 6th, complained of having serious pains. The pain was so painful that he couldn't bear it, I can imagine what he went through. He was taken to the Groote Schuur hospital that same day but died the following morning.

In 2011‚ Bala disclosed that he was HIV-positive. In 2014 he was diagnosed with anal cancer.

His last tweet about his illness was in February reads:
"I pray 2 God everyday 2 help me pass this cancer #itshard #pains #wontgiveup #canwinthisbattle #cantsleepofpains". May his soul rest in peace, Amen
