“PPAP” Singer Marries Beautiful Swimsuit Model 15 Years Younger Than Him

I’m sure all of you are familiar with the “Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen” song, right? These past 12 months have been very eventful for the Japanese comedian Daimaou Kosaka, better known as his alter ego Piko Taro.

A year ago, Piko was only a minor celebrity in Japan, he was completely unknown overseas, however, his fate changed with the release of his worldwide hit song, “Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen”.

The tune was catchy and the lyrics were simple, it quickly became a hit among all ages and all over the world! Since achieving international fame, he has had creative collaborations with recording artists Psy and Justin Bieber, as well as the Death Note anime franchise.

This time around, Kosaka has entered into another significant partnership, as he married model and media personality Hitomi Yasueda.

The pair registered their marriage on August 3, or 8-3, since together the numerals 8 and 3 can be read as “Yassan”, the nickname which Kosaka calls his wife.

However, some hardcore fans were surprised by the news as Piko Taro has previously made multiple mentions of his wife, Tami. Whom he describes as a 78-year-old woman he met in a hospital restroom and who has teeth like a pirahanna’s.

While Daimaou Kosaka and Piko Taro inhabit the same body, Kosaka insists that they are two different people, and Piko Taro’s in-character references to his matrimonial union with Tami are just a part of his act.

Since Kosaka is not a classically handsome man, many have been tempted to accuse Yasueda of using her looks to get her hook into the 44-year-old comedian and ride the coattails of his recent success.

Little did we all know, the couple had actually been dating for four years before tying the knot, having met on a television program they both appeared on while Kosaka was still struggling to find an audience for his unique comedic style.

Kosaka was quoted saying,

“I was attracted to the kindness, earnestness, sadness, and strength of spirit that she showed when we talked, chatted, and had conversations.”

While on the topic of his hit single, “PPAP”, he claimed that he has not made a single yen off of the song’s popularity but money is not a factor in their marriage either!

That’s the spirit! You don’t need to have a grand wedding to get married, a simple small yet meaningful one will do. Here’s to the newlyweds and all the best in life! 

For old times’ sake, let’s listen to the song once more!
