3Sum member Koyo Bala has died

The musician surrendered to a battle with cancer this morning at Groote Schuur hospital in Cape Town.

In the recent past Bala has staged a brave fight against cancer and had been diagnosed HIV positive.

Speaking for the family longtime friend and housemate Ephraim "Ephymol" Molingoana told Sowetan Live that Bala always kept a positive outlook and remained strong throughout his illness.

"We are devastated and in state of disbelief," he said.

The flamboyant 37-year-old was a member of 'bubblegum pop' group 3Sum along with Jeff Moyo and Amstel Maboa. Bala had hinted at a comeback to the music scene when he posted a picture in studio captioned "Let's go back to the beat".

Maboa is now the only remaining member of the group as Bala’s death follows that of Jeff Moyo who was laid to rest in 2010.

There is so much joy and peace in my life that i would love to share this, i am from Gaborone, Botswana: There was no peace in my life. The endless fights i had with my husband almost led to separation because i could not bare children and he was seeing another lady. My husband was so distant with no communication between us. There was a lot of tension both at home and at work. I was working hard but receiving very little pay and no promotion. One morning, reading the papers, i came across a testimony of another lady about how this great Baba Yusuf had helped her, I decided to give him a call despite the fact that he is based in South Africa and i was in Botswana. He gave me power powder,cleansed me from the bad omens and cast me a powerful love Spell. He solved all my financial problems, bareness and my husband reconciled with me. We are now living a healthy happy marriage together and had our first baby. Please if you come across this, I recommend you to go and see BABA yusuf a powerful traditional healer no matter what problems you are facing or where you are, he will help you. You can contact Baba Yusuf on +27735397457 or email, traditionalhealer35@gmail.co
