Gossip Girl: Goodbye, Lloyd

Stars from here and all over the world are lamenting the death of the funny and charming  26-year-old YouTube sensation Lloyd Café Cadena who passed away last Sept. 4.

His family is requesting for prayers, respect, and privacy during this time.  

Grammy-award winning singer, Mariah Carrey, expressed her condolences via Twitter.

“So sad, RIP Lloyd, you will be missed Sending my prayers to his family and friends during this difficult time,” she wrote.

Cadena started his YouTube career back in 2011 singing song parodies by American pop stars, documenting his travels, unboxing various stuff and of course, challenge videos, like his epic “Can’t Say No Challenge” that garnered 5.4 million views.

The funny and charming vlogger has 5.4 million subscribers in you tube and 6 million subscribers in Facebook.

Because of his popularity, many from showbiz eventually collaborated with him. 

Vice Ganda postponed the uploading of his most recent video to mourn for the well-loved YouTuber.

In his Twitter account, Vica Ganda expressed  sadness over the death of his friend. “Nakakalungkot na di ko naiabot sayo yung simpleng hiling mo sakin dahil sa pandemya. Sana nakagawa ako ng paraan. Sorry Lloyd. Salamat sa pagmamahal mo!!! Mahal din kita! Mahal ka namin!”

Alex Gonzaga posted a picture of Lloyd on her Instagram feed and wrote, “Rest in peace Lloyd Cadena…saglit lang tayo nagsama para sa collab natin, pero I wtitnessed how your mere presence can lighten and bring joy sa mga nakapaligid sayo…marami kami napasaya mo at hindi makakalimot…” 

Maine Mendoza also took to Twitter to mourn Cadena’s passing.

“Nakakalungkot. Rest in peace, Lloyd Cadena. Masaya ako na nameet kita in person at nasabi ko sayo na marami kang napapaligaya, isa na ako doon. I-decorate mo ang heaven ng bonggang-bongga at pasayahin mo pa ang mga angels doon. Gusto nila yooon! Rest easy, Kween.”

Fondly called LC and Kween by people close to him, Cadena had a generous heart. He did not have much but whatever he had he would gladly share to others.

Just recently, he donated laptops to children for their online classes.

For those people that needed food, he would create challenges like “I will but everything you can hold.”

His last vlog was the culmination of the YouTuber’s hard work. Their house was about to be demolished so LC gifted his mom with a brand new home.

His mother is an overseas Filipino worker. 

 Those of you who wish to help the family Cadena left may message them in his Facebook page. Thank you for giving so much joy to the whole world Kween….
