The news of YouTube superstar and influencer Lloyd Café Cadena’s passing came as a shock for everyone. On Friday afternoon, Sept.4, his official Facebook page confirmed it through an announcement from his family — one that was soon flooded with people expressing their condolences and mourning. Lloyd, or Kween LC as his fans endearingly call him, was 26 years old.
Kween LC might have left this world, but we’re thankful we have his vlogs to watch to remind us of how, more than making people laugh, he helped others in every way he could. From his Toblerone stairs to all his heartwarming videos of him giving back, here are 8 of Kween LC’s best moments.
When he gave tablets and face masks to children in need
Online classes are a pain especially for the marginalized. Lloyd knows the struggles of these children and he didn’t need any prompting – he wanted to give back and in doing so has made the kids and all his subscribers happy.
His great relationship with his mom
We all know Kween LC is a sweet person because he was raised well and this video shows where he got his character from. The prank didn’t even last long because his mom admitted that she sensed it was for vlog content since Lloyd usually doesn’t ignore her. It just shows how much he loves his mom!
When he bought those kids literally everything they want
Who can forget the joy in the eyes of those kids when Lloyd chose them? He let them buy everything to their heart’s content even saying that it would help their parents immensely. And afterward, when Lloyd made them all line up and gave them money, it felt like Christmas in the middle of November. He gave back and we remember him for it.
He even did an adult version of the “I’ll Buy Everything You Can Carry” video for his neighbors!
When he made yet another relatable vlog about the student experience
He has made other relatable student videos but this one is one of the best. Though he still used the iconic pink background, we could all tell that he leveled up to filming scenarios. And do you see the blush on Kween LC’s cheeks? What a glow up!
When he imitated other YouTubers’ intro
Lloyd gets along well with other Pinoy YouTubers, another character of his that made him well-loved. He isn’t one of those egotistical YouTubers who think they’re better than others, and to him, everyone is a friend. Who remembers how he got along with Hasht5 and had them as guests even when they were being bullied by literally everyone else?
Haters? He doesn’t let them get to him
His upbeat and positive attitude is what endeared us to him. Even his haters can’t tear down that upbeat personality!
Who can forget his now-iconic Toblerone stairs?
One proof that Lloyd can make anything interesting is this particular house tour. It’s a simple tour of an unfinished house with a terrifying staircase (which fellow YouTuber Llyan Austria commented on), but he made us laugh throughout the whole 12 minutes anyway.
He has always had the attitude of giving back to celebrate his milestones
And if you think that Kween LC only had the initiative to give back because online classes are a trending issue, think again. This vlog above showed how he celebrated reaching his 500,000 subscribers back in 2017 by buying school supplies for kids. Click here for the actual video of them distributing it to the kids. Scour his YouTube account and you’ll see more videos of him helping others, especially students and children, in need.
