5 Oct – GEM Tang is elated to win her first Golden Melody Awards since departing from her record label Hummingbird Music.
As reported on Mingpao, the singer who was named the recipient of the Special Jury Award for her work in "City Zoo", took to social media to express her happiness over the recognition, writing, "My first Golden Melody award. Thank you!"
She also seemed to shade her former manager, of whom she was in conflict with prior and subsequent to her departure from the label, writing, "How many years have you been telling me that I can't do anything without you, I'm just a commodity, and even without my knowledge, my name is registered as a trademark. After I left, I found out that the copyrights all the works I had written before needed to be obtained through litigation. There are also unspeakable obstacles time and time again."
"I almost gave up on all of this. But today I once again proved it to myself. It also proved to you that I am really not a commodity in your hand. I can still do without you, and I am able to bloom even better," she added.
