Billy Boyo was more a live deejay rather than a recording artist. After the digital era set in, it became quiet around him, and he never achieved any kind of comeback. On October 29th, 2000, he apparently died of a brain tumor. This is the most widely accepted theory for Billy Boyo's death, however no records of this can be found.
