Popular 1990s R&B singer singer Keith Martin has been found dead in his Philippines condo, MTO News has confirmed. And at least one of his family members suspects that his death may have been caused by “one of his young girlfriends.”
The ‘Because of You’ singer, 57, was discovered by residents inside a building complex in Quezon City, The Philippines.
According to local cops, neighbors reported a pungent odor coming from one of the units on the 6th floor at 7:15 a.m on Friday morning.
Witnesses say the body, which has been formally identified, was discovered lying in bed.

At this time, a cause of death has yet to have been established. But MTO News spoke with one of Keith’s family members living in the Unites States, and that person suspects foul play.
The family member, who asked to remain nameless, told MTO News that Keith moved to the Philippines nearly a decade ago. And had been dating multiple much younger women while in the Asian country.
The family member continued, “Keith was in good health. They should investigate whether any of the women he was with did something to him.”
Influenced by the likes of the Jackson 5 and Stevie Wonder as a child, Keith began writing music at the age of 19.
He was a member of the group Masquerade during the 1980s, before his work as a solo artist, songwriter and producer earned him a large following throughout the world.
His most notable single ‘Because of You’, is still hugely popular in the US and Asia.
