Iconic Filipino singer of the 90s, April Boy Regino, breathed his last Sunday morning.

This was announced by his brother Vingo Regino in his Facebook page.

Nakakalungkot naman ang araw na ito. Wala na ang Kuya April Boy ko (This day is so sad. My elder brother April Boy is gone),” stated Vingo in his social post.

April Boy was 51.

 

Prostate CA

April Boy died of lingering illnesses which included prostate cancer and diabetes.

Regino popularized the songs “Paano ang Puso Ko,” “Di Ko Kayang Tanggapin”, etc. which made them consistently on top of the music charts that catapulted him to fame in the local Tin Pan Alley.

He was also a movie star when “Di Ko Kayang Tanggapin” was translated into film in 2000 by World Arts Cinema with Willy Milan at the helm.

 

Regular Live Guests

This writer played a vital role in April Boy’s climb to the top of the local music industry when he and Vingo launched their signature songs as singers and composers in my radio show over AM radio DZXQ in 1993.

They were regular live guests in my daily program titled “XQ’s Me”.

From thereon, it was a road to headway for both April Boy and Vingo.
