Last year, Kevin Cheng rose to popularly in Mainland after the drama Startling Step by Step and was the 3 award winner TV King in both HK and Mainland. A few days ago, Kevin was spotted in a secret meeting with EEG executive Ng Yue and Virgina Lok. Unfortunately, things may not work out as expected. It was said earlier Raymond Lam, who finally managed to take a stable position in EEG, wanted to stop Kevin from stealing his spot, so he started putting pressure on Virgina. To fulfill his singing dream, it's not surprising Kevin would take more initiative to make it happen. Kevin heard the news that Raymond was trying to prevent him to enter EEG, so he quickly asked his partner Myolie Wu to help him get into Neway.
After all those years of hard work, it finally paid off. The clever Kevin Cheng took the good opportunity and went to talk to Virgina in hope to get assistance to sign with a record company. It was said Kevin had always wanted to release another album. Seeing his 'junior' Raymond Lam doing so well in the music industry, already holding three HK Colisuem concerts and won the 'Asia-Pacific Most Popular Male Singer Award' twice, it is hard for him to not be jealous.
Jealous of Raymond Lam got HK Coliseum concerts
Kevin had been Virgina Lok's favorite all along, so a few days ago she personally went out to discuss an EEG contract with Ng Yue, the executive of EEG. During the time, Kevin voiced out two conditions that he wanted in the contract. First, his debut album must include Mandarin songs to help him break into the Mainland market. Secondly, he wants to open a HK Coliseum concert to fulfill a wish he had for many years.
When the rumor broke out that Kevin might become an EEG artist, Raymond heard the news and had an opinion. An insider reveals: "Of course Ah Fung (Raymond) doesn't want Kevin in EEG, because he'll weaken his current status in the company! He even met up with Miss Lok and was very concerned if Kevin's discussion with EEG went well or not. Ah Fung was so anxious, and there isn't any reason why Miss Lok didn't know what he's thinking? So, Miss Lok is feeling very 15/16 now."
Kevin heard the news that Raymond went to talk to Virgina and quickly went for plan B. He went to ask his good partner, Myolie Wu, to help him make a connection to talk to her record company Neway Star. Currently, Chilam Cheung is the only first line singer under Neway, so if Kevin successfully enters the company too, it is much easier for him to become the Big Brother.
The other day, [Sudden Weekly] contacted Myolie about her getting Kevin a connection with Neway. She smiled: "Why don't .... you ask Kevin! Its better if he responds himself!"
In regards to the news about the comparisons with Raymond and how Myolie helped him? Kevin said impatiently: "Why are you all comparing Raymond and I?! TVB will help me handle all the discussions and with which companies. We don't have to worry about this. After all, if there is news we will announce, ok?" Kevin kept his mouth shut, but Virgina admitted they are in the discussion stages: "Kevin had always wanted to sing again. After all, in many of his series, we make arrangements for him to sing the theme song, just like the recent new series The King of Boxing. As for a new album, I'm not sure if he'll be able to release one this year because he's just so busy, he doesn't even have the time to record. However, I cannot say which company he's going to sign with yet."
Neway Star Chairman (Wong Kin Ho) directly admitted he is interested in Kevin: "He is so popular now, Neway Star is interested in him, but he's very busy. The details cannot be discussed in just 1 or 2 times."
