Earlier G.E.M voiced her dissatisfaction, "the mechanism is unfair, [they're] clearly helping their own people". Apparently this was advance notice that she's not attending tonight's CRHK Chik Chak Music Awards 2012. A few nights ago, she uploaded a 4 minute clip, bashing that an awards ceremony lacks fairness. Although she didn't give a name, but because she added Chik Chak's old videos in her clip, it is clear who she is talking about. Yesterday Wong Cho Lam praised "Amazing GEM, you're brave." Paul Wong supported her: "Faking fairness does not mean their truly overbearing. I'm reposting this!" In the past, Denise Ho left the Chik Chak awards empty-handed, she supported GEM in a neutral manner: "I've been upset before because my song didn't advance to the top 10; I later realized, its nothing more than a game by a single business." She also added what her mentor Anita Mui taught her, "do your own thing with modesty and seriousness is the most important" to encourage GEM.
Pong Nan told GEM to "have a thankful heart" and modesty: "Do you remember they (Chik Chak) gave you the newcomer award in 2008? Remember: Be thankful! Be grateful for all your blessings!" He said earnestly: "And is there is a need for you get so many people involved on something you think its meaningless and shoot such a good quality clip? You say you don't care, but in your heart you actually do care?" Former CRHK DJ (Sin Lei Mui) added: "Hong Kong really isn't right for you." There were nearly a 1,000 fans whom were debating on the website GEM posted her video on. GEM saw the crowd's reaction and still didn't keep her mouth shut, "My position is basically not a discussion on whether its fair or not. The creditability of each award ceremony, we all basically know very well in our hearts. Faking fairness is not truly overbearing, I respect the business decisions, but I cannot accept the professionally packaged business decision."
Earlier GEM's manager (Cheung Dan) bashed CRHK because of issues with her concert's promotions. Yesterday he expressed he does not regret the 'provoking' video clip uploaded online. The Chik Chak footage only appeared for two seconds, which shouldn't be a copyright infringement. He continued: "Actually we don't mind the awards, just dissatisfied with the fake voting system and they're saying their being fair. In fact, it's just voted by a small circle of people. I spoke up because I want everyone to recognize this issue and hope the music industry improves." He said GEM should have won an award, "If we are willing to attend, I believe she'll get the award. I contacted the responsible department before, but they were too busy to follow up!"
CRHK's spokesperson expressed: "The clip didn't say which radio station's music awards she was referring to. I don't know what I'm responding to. Why not just ask GEM to get a better understanding first."
