Hui, a highly-respected Cantopop
legend in Hong Kong, is also a songwriter and
film actor. He is credited with popularising Cantopop by the use of Cantonese
jargon and slang in his lyrics to depict various current issues in society as
well as to recount love stories. In May 1983, Hui performed at the Hong Kong
Coliseum, making him the first singer to hold a solo concert at the
entertainment venue. Over the decades, he has contributed a wealth of Cantonese
hits to pop culture such as “The Private Eyes,” “Silence is Golden,” “Genius
and Idiot” and “Made in Hong Kong,” which continue to remain all-time favourites. April’s concert
will also be the superstar’s third time to perform at the CotaiArena, having
performed there in 2009 and 2010.
