Ahmad Gives, best known as “Real” from VH1’s series Real Chance of Love, passed away Friday night (Feb. 20), after a long long battle with cancer. He was just 33.
According to TMZ, the reality TV star had been diagnosed with stage-four colon cancer in 2013, and his situation had improved after he undergoing chemotherapy, but his condition reportedly worsened in January.
Real’s brother, Kamal Givens (aka Chance), posted a photo of himself in tears on Instagram.
“[Bye] to my favorite guy in this whole world be in peace We love you forever bro,” he wrote in the caption. “I’ll see you one day soon. We shall dance again in God’s kingdom forever and ever, bro. Words can’t describe my pain. World, pray for me!”
Real and Chance gained notoriety after being cast members on VH1’s I Love New York. Thanks to their popularity, they got their own spinoff, Real Chance of Love. It ran for two seasons from 2008 to 2009 and they later starred on VH1’s reality series, Real and Chance: The Legend Hunters.
