Canto-pop is going to rise to the top once more, says Hong Kong’s pop idol, Keung To. He was speaking at ViuTV’s Chill Club Music Awards ceremony on Sunday, where he scooped two awards for himself and two more as part of the boy band, Mirror.
ViuTV’s weekly Chill Club showcases up-and-coming local artists singing songs from different eras. This award show was the first for the Cantonese channel.
Keung scored a silver award for the category Male Singer of the Year, with pop artist Terence Lam taking the gold. Keung’s song Love Visa Application was among the Top 10 Songs of the Year. The awards Male/Female Singer of the Year, Top 10 Songs of the Year, and Song of the Year were open to audience voting online.
The 21-year-old thanked all Hongkongers for their support, in his acceptance speech for the silver award, adding “as young people or Hong Kong singers, I believe we will become the top of Asia once more”.
As part of the 12-member boy group, Mirror, Keung struck gold in the Group of the Year category and was again in the Top 10 category with their song Ignited from their second album One and All. Mirror first entered Hong Kong’s music scene in 2018 after taking part in ViuTV’s talent competition, Good Night Show.
Keung is no stranger to receiving awards. At the beginning of the year, he made Canto-pop history when he became the youngest person to ever win the coveted My Favourite Male Singer Award and My Favourite Song Award at CRHK’s Ultimate Song Chart Awards.

Both of these prizes are also audience favourites.
Recently, Keung has been making waves by working with McDonald’s to create the “Keung B Meal”, which adds slices of bacon to the famous Big Mac burger.
The campaign has been a big hit amongst many young Hongkongers and Keung fans.
