Hana Kuk, Pakho Chau Win Most Popular Singer Awards at Jade Solid Goldjessie tan
The 2019 Jade Solid Gold Best Ten Music Awards Presentation was held yesterday, and Hana Kuk (菊梓喬) was the star of the night bringing home six awards including the Most Popular Female Singer title two years in a row. Pakho Chau (周柏豪) was also a huge winner with five awards, including the Most Popular Male Singer and Song of the Year awards.
Hana’s success in the last two years has surpassed The Voice Entertainment label mate, Jinny Ng (吳若希). Despite Jinny’s past iconic drama songs, Jinny’s popularity has declined since she took a hiatus to have her daughter two years ago. Due to their intense competition, there have always been rumors circulating that Hana and Jinny do not get along. When Hana went on stage to receive the Most Popular Female Singer award, Jinny was seen clapping but she turned her face and kept talking with Hubert Wu (胡鴻鈞) who was sitting beside her.
In Hana’s speech, she said, “A lot has happened during this year and I was able to accomplish a lot of my goals like holding a concert and singing many great songs. I want to thank the company, my boss and the music industry. Lastly, I want to thank my fans because without you all, I wouldn’t have been able to continue. Let’s continue on this journey together.”
Jinny, who won three awards last night, spoke with the press afterward, “I don’t want to win [the Most Popular Female Singer] anymore! The pressure is too much. I’m not someone who follows rules. I’m afraid I can’t control myself on stage. Let others handle these emotional issues. I’m happier sitting below the stage rather than being on stage.” Asked why she turned her face to talk with Hubert when Hana received her top award for the evening, Jinny said, “We were talking about what food will be at the afterparty–if there would be any abalone.”
With 48 awards handled out, and 30 singers in attendance, virtually everyone walked away being a winner. Kayee Tam‘s (譚嘉儀) breakout hit “Can You Hear” helped her win two awards, including the Most Popular Singer Online and Excellence Award (Gold). Fred Cheng (鄭俊弘), Sukie Shek (石詠莉), Bella Lam ( 林穎彤), Hubert Wu (胡鴻鈞), and Vincent Wong (王浩信) won two awards each.
