Frankie beverly has throat cancer?

We're happy to tell you that Frankie Beverly (born Howard Beverly on December 6, 1946 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) does not have throat cancer.

He did have some throat issues in the early 2000s, but to quote Frankie himself "I've had some throat problems; I mean, nothing cancerous or nothing like that."

It's said that he took his stage name from Frankie Lymon & the Teenagers. Look for his 18 track Greatest Hits from Maze featuring Frankie Beverly.
