Quick Recovery Joy
In a video shared on YouTube, Ben disclosed that, he had an agreement with her sister that if her condition forces her to shave, then he will join her as a sign of solidarity.
In the video on her girlfriend’s Vlog, Wanjiru Njiru Cyco stated that he also made a promise to himself not to keep his sisters story to himself.
“My sister has been sick for a while now I think we are talking about 4-5months. It’s been hell, it’s been crazy because of the emotion, there’s something it does to you. She started to have problems with her menses, shed cramp for 2-3 weeks and rapidly lost weight. She started turning white. Her fingernails, her eyes, her lips, her tongue, that’s when we knew something was wrong and rushed her to the hospital and they did a biopsy test and found out she had cancer," Cyco stated.
Upon returning home from the hospital, Joy asked her brother if she had cancer, Ben says he tried mumbling his way around but eventually said yes.
Inspire other people.
She started crying and responded, “Wow my testimony is going to be greater and it’s going to be used to inspire other people.”
Currently, Joy is in India undergoing treatment.
On International women’s Day Ben Wrote “Happy international women's day Fam, today I want to celebrate my small sister @_fu.raha_ She has been unwell but she is ever smiling and happy, she's a ball of positive Energy. Tag a lady who oozes positive vibes all the time.”
Ben started to pursue a solo music career after the group (Christ Cycos) split in 2016.
