JOHANNESBURG – A memorial service will be held for South African musician and socialite Koyo Bala in Newtown tomorrow. 

The 37-year old died last week following a three-year battle with cancer.

Bala will be remembered in two separate ceremonies before he is laid to rest this weekend.

Close friend and talent manager Thanduxolo Jindela says the artists’ family are still devastated by his passing.

“The last time that we saw him, he was flamboyant, very active and very engaging so the news came to us as very heart-breaking and sudden. The family at the moment is in grief and have asked the public to give them time to grieve.”

A second memorial service will be held on Thursday at the Ikwezi Centre in Cape Town.
