It’s with a very heavy heart I write this article. At just 20 years old, popular producer PowapowaP has passed away. It happened on July 23rd, and his last song, ‘Red Pen Please’ was uploaded on the same day. The announcement came from U/M/A/A on Twitter, which you can view below.

PowapowaP was famous for many hit songs, including Strobe Last, Strobe Light, Q, and Hello Strobe, just to name a few. He’s been active for many years, so it’s very upsetting to see him go. His last song, ‘Red Pen Please’, can be listened to here.ぽわぽわP

It’s hard to know what to write, because this is such a huge loss for the Vocaloid community. To lose such a talented producer at such a young age is quite a tragedy, and we currently don’t know the cause of his death. What we can do however, is keep him and his music in our memories, and be thankful for the time he spent in the community.

So thank you, PowapowaP, and rest in peace.
