“Papa you have been there for everyone serving and leading God’s people I pray that at this time you receive just as much support as you give the pain of loosing someone dear is never an easy one and every year the anniversary of their existence and death is a constant reminder. I believe that Christian is watching over you with the host of heaven smiling at you saying how proud he is of you. It is well Papa Lovy. May the bosom of the Lord cradle you at this time as you rest in him. 🙏,” said Gracefully Broken7.

The late Christian Logomba died in a Los Angeles hospital following complications related to brain cancer. Christian was first diagnosed with a tumor around 2015 which was successfully removed but the surgery left him with brain injuries.

“The tumor wasn’t cancerous, it was malignant but stage 4 meningioma (a tumor that forms on membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord inside the skull) so they took the tumor out but it was so big, really big. It grew over time and was pushing the brain on one side. So, when they took it out, there was some damage done to the brain tissue that was really severe. The first two years, Christian was fine and then the complications from the damage is what caused a lot of things. The overall damage to the brain. The tumor was removed once and for all it never came back,” Lovy said duirng a past interview.

Despite the tumor being removed, doctors said Christian wouldn’t live long, only for him to live on three more years in addition to what the doctors had calculated for him. He died at the hospital with his siblings by his side.

Subsequently, Lovy quit music, saying it would be weird to continue singing without his brother but hoped to soon release some of the songs his late brother had written before his death.
