Françoiz Coballa is a Mexican singer & song writer born in Zapopan, Jalisco, Mexico. There was a lot of controversy around his supposed death in 2007. Recently, since he's been on tour and recording new material, the "dead" rumours had stopped. He is the first child of three (brother Esmé Coballa, better known as Justino Jimenez, now 16 years old and sister Émilien Coballa, now 17 years old). He was born in Mexico when his mother Ghyslain Basset (born in France in 1962) and father Leon Tourim (born in france 1957, later named Coballa) moved to Zapopan, Jalisco.
