Socialite and musician Koyo Bala is reportedly set to undergo surgery for anal Cancer next Friday.

This is according to Sowetan, who confirmed the sad news with the singer.

Koyo and his band members burst into the music scene as SA's first all-guy group, 3Sum. However, their time in the limelight was cut short after one of the band members, Jeff Moyo died - allegedly from an HIV related cause.

Koyo first disclosed that he was HIV positive two years ago and was diagnosed with Cancer a few months after.

"I went for chemotherapy for six weeks and a radiation programme two years ago, but the Cancer came back severely. I was referred to Cape Town to do the operation by doctors in Johannesburg. The doctors told me they were surprised [I had the cancer] because it is something that is more prevalent in women," he told the paper.
