“This day is so sad.. my brother April Boy is gone,” read Vingo’s post.

The post, however, did not identify the singer’s cause of death.

Popularly known as the “Jukebox King”, April Boy quit show business in 2014 after he was diagnosed with prostate cancer.

In 2015, he was then diagnosed with diabetic retinopathy which caused him to slowly lose his eyesight.

April Boy’s 1990s hits include “Paano Ang Puso Ko” and “Di Ko Kayang Tanggapin”.

He was the leader of the April Boys trio which include his brothers Vingo and Jimmy.
