’80s “Baleleng” Hitmaker Roel Cortez Died of Colon Cancer


Videoke bars and street parties have at least once played songs such as “Baleleng” and “Napakasakit Kuya Eddie.” Some of us have heard this even sung it once. Or maybe not. Still, do these songs ring a bell to you?

Well, the ‘80s singer of these hits, Roel Cortez, unfortunately passed away last April 1, Wednesday, 9:30pm, from colon cancer.

GMA show Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho’s Facebook page broke the news to the public.

It was also posted on the page that the funeral will be held at Ever Funeral at Meycauayan , Bulacan, and will be seen last on April 9.

Just last March 22, his life was featured at the same GMA7 show. He was then on his home already lying in bed of sickness. He was also visited by the legendary folk singer Freddie Aguilar.
