Kings of Hokkien

Lovers of Hokkien songs will love this! Resorts World Genting will soon feature Cai Xiao Hu and Weng Li You at the Arena of Stars. The two were the first Hokkien male singers ever to perform at the Taipei Arena, rendering Wo Wen Tian, the theme song of the Hokkien drama Love.

Cai Xiao Hu was a winner in Taiwan’s talent show, Five Light Award, following which he launched his first album. This was followed by more fame and success in 1992 when he won Best New Artist at the 4th Golden Melody Award.

Weng Li You participated in a talent show presented by Sanlih E-Television Inc. He may have lost in Round 10 but nevertheless was a popular figure and enjoyed a strong fan following. He produced his first album, a collaboration with Yu Tien and Chen Ya-Lan, and seeing how the album didn't exactly take off, he decided to focus on his business venture.

In 2003, Cai spotted him and recognised him from the time he was on TV. Seeing the potential in Weng's singing ability, he decided to invite the former to join HCM Music.

Guest Artist
Joining Cai and Weng at the Arena of Stars is Twinkling Ting, a Taiwanese singer who specialises in Hokkien songs. Fans of Ting would remember her in the drama, RPOGE and she also performed on the TV show, Super Night Club with Jason Wang, another famous Taiwanese singer.
