Khine Htoo (Burmese: ခိုင်ထူး; also spelt Khaing Htoo, 28 January 1956 – 9 August 2017) was a prominent Burmese singer, known for numerous hit songs, including "Sagaing Road" (စစ်ကိုင်းလမ်း), "Khitta" (ခတ္တာ), "The Last Dream" (နောက်ဆုံးအိပ်မက်), and "Inzali" (အဉ္ဇလီ).[1][2]

Early life and education[edit]

Khine Htoo was born on 28 January 1956, in Rangoon, Burma, to Tha Hto, a professor at the Yangon University of Economics, and his wife, Tin Myint Myint. He was the second eldest of three children.

Khine Htoo was first married to May Kyaw Khaing, a physician. The two separated following the 8888 Uprising, when his wife, involved in political activities, fled to the Thai-Burmese border. Following that, he wed Mi Gaing, an ethnic Kachin. The two have a son, Gun Hsan Laphai. His third marriage was with Saw Nwe Nwe Htun.

Death[edit]

On 31 July 2017, Khine Htoo was admitted to Yangon General Hospital for hematemesis, and also showed symptoms of jaundice.[3] HIs condition did not improve, so he was flown to Samitivej Hospital in Bangkok for further treatment.[4] There, he was diagnosed with an advanced form of pancreatic cancer.[5][4] Khine Htoo was flown back to Yangon on 8 August, and died of pancreatic cancer at the Parami Hospital in Yangon, Myanmar on 9 August 2017, around 3:24 pm in the afternoon.[2]
