At 11:11 p.m. on September 2, vlogger Lloyd Cafe Cadena made a wish that he posted on Twitter: “Healing for Everyone!”
Two days later, he would die suddenly, leaving behind his many followers in shock. He was just 26.
Tributes have been pouring in for Lloyd, who brought joy to millions with his funny YouTube videos.
“What is YouTube without you, Kween LC?” they asked.
He was more than just the content he created—people recalled his generosity and kind heart.
One of the last YouTube videos he uploaded was his Balik Eskwela project where he handed out tablets and masks to kids in his old neighborhood. “Ang mga requirement natin, mga batang nag-aaral at masipag,” he said.
The rain didn’t stop LLoyd from giving out the gadgets to students who will be using them for online learning. “Laban para sa mga bata!” he said.
In another video, which showed him unboxing a new refrigerator with his mother in the new house he’s building for them, he thanked his followers for supporting him for over ten years.
“Noon pangarap lang namin magkaroon ng ref na dalawa yung bukasan. Ngayon magiging totoo na siya at magiging reality na dahil sa lahat ng mga Cadenators ko. I want to thank all of you dahil binigyan niyo ako ng career para maitayo ko ang napakagandang bahay na ito… Thank you very much, hindi niyo nilubayan ang isang baklang Lloyd Cadena… You loved me with all my flaws.”
