The post, however, did not state April Boy's cause of death.

It was back in 2011 when he revealed he was diagnosed with prostate cancer in an exclusive interview with GMA News, saying he discovered the news in America back in 2009. Yet, in 2013, he revealed he was cancer-free via the Kapuso talk show Startalk.

By 2015, April Boy revealed another struggle: diabetes, causing severe loss of vision. He underwent surgery to regain his vision.

April Boy is an OPM icon, best known for his 90s hits "Paano Ang Puso Ko" and "'Di Ko Kayang Tanggapin."
