SINGAPORE - It's a pen, it's an apple, no it's Japanese singer Piko-Taro.
The singer, the alter ego of comedian and DJ Daimaou Kosaka, is appearing at the Anime Festival Asia held at Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre on Nov 27. He set a Guiness World Record for his viral song, Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen (PPAP).
Piko-Taro will be at Wakuwaku Japan's booth at the festival, the TV channel's Facebook announced in a post on Tuesday (Nov 15).
The 53-year-old received a Guinness World Record in October for PPAP, as it was the shortest song to chart on the US Billboard Hot 100 charts.
The 45-second song debuted at No. 77 on the chart dated Oct 29.
Piko-Taro is the first Japanese artist to chart on Billboard since 1990.
A video of him performing the song was first uploaded in August, and has since chalked up more than 84 million views.
