23 Oct – Despite earlier reports saying that Ex-Comic Boyz' Arroy Shen condition is stabilising after his recent brain surgery, the singer was pronounced dead last Friday.
As reported on Groove Asia website, on 19 October, Arroy Shen was reported to have suffered a right brain haemorrhage that led to an acute renal failure. The singer, who was reported to be in a coma due to lack of oxygen in his brain after underwent a critical surgery to remove a blood clot in his brain, was extubated and passed away in his own home.
His 86-year-old grandmother, who Arroy shared the closest relationship with was inconsolable when the media visited her at her house.
The grandmother – whose name is tattooed on Arroy's body, expressed her grief, saying, "Everyone dies. I should go because I'm old. But he's so young. He doesn't deserve to go. I'm willing to die in my grandson's place."
The singer was 29-years-old.
