Due to his performance in Ghetto Justice <怒火街頭>, “Law Ba” Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) became this year’s triple award winning TV King, with his popularity exploding wildly. With his fame and fortune both rising magnificently, Kevin also hoped to release a Mandarin album and resurrect his singer dreams. After Kevin explicitly stated his music dreams, many record companies were interested in recruiting him.
AT 6 PM yesterday, EEG executive, Ng Yu (吳雨) and TVB executive, Virginia Lok (樂易玲), met at the Shangri-La Hotel in Kowloon. Shortly afterward, Kevin Cheng emerged and chatted with everyone for one hour. Ng Yu was the first to leave, upon which EEG’s concert producer, Alex Fung, continued the meeting with Kevin and Ms. Lok for another hour. Throughout the meeting, Kevin listened attentively, while Ms. Lok took notes of the details.
In a telephone interview with Oriental Daily, Kevin Cheng admitted that he did not possess any masterpieces in his music career and inevitably, felt regretful. Asked whether he had discussed plans with EEG to launch a concert at the Hong Kong Coliseum, Kevin said, “We met to toss around a few ideas. We are uncertain of the possibilities.” (How did the discussion go?) “We had a very enjoyable discussion!”
Jayne: I feel that Kevin should stick to acting and leave behind his music dreams. A short concert series may bring in huge income (EEG is very good in hyping up their concerts); however I think Kevin is a better actor than singer. His voice just doesn’t emote enough in earlier songs.
Ms. Lok is TVB’s “Power Broker,” striking lucrative money-making deals between artists and vendors/ companies.
