Hong Kong singer-actor Raymond Lam has officially joined Emperor Entertainment Group (EEG), one of the largest agencies in Hong Kong, after signing a three-year contract worth HK$100 million (approximately S$16.79 million) with the company.
Dressed in a black suit, the 34-year-old arrived at the press conference last night in a Lamborghini. EEG’s chairman and founder Albert Yeung, as well as Raymond’s new labelmates including Joey Yung and Mani Fok, were also present at the event.
In addition, Raymond’s good friends such as Louis Koo, Miriam Yeung and Sandra Ng expressed their well wishes in a video clip. His girlfriend Karena Ng, however, was absent from the occasion due to work commitments.
During his speech, Raymond thanked Albert for his “kindness” and declared that he will continue to expand his showbiz career in singing and acting, even though his focus will be on movies.
Also, EEG has specially invited reknowned Chinese martial arts choreographer Yuen Woo-ping and several other Hong Kong filmmakers including Alan Mak and John Shum, to mould Raymond into the next action star.
While speaking to reporters, Raymond was visibly excited about his upcoming plans. “I would do anything to cooperate with the company and I hope to gain recognition in the film industry in the future,” he asserted.
