Singer Kouji Wada Succumbs to Cancer


Melancholy has been rampantly spreading throughout the internet for esteemed singer Kouji Wada (famously known for Digimon‘s “Butterfly”), who has unfortunately passed away due to pharyngeal cancer, the depressing outcome of his exasperatingly long struggle against the affliction.

Kouji Wada’s struggle with the illness began around 2003 where the poor singer went on hiatus for two years, being forced to go on hiatus once again in 2011 despite being previously treated – with the memorable icon unfortunately succumbing to the relapse at the age of 42.
