TVB recently gave veteran actress Mimi Chu, 67, a long service award to commemorate her three decades with the broadcaster.
However, according to Hongkong media, when Mimi first found out that TVB was recognising her contributions to the company, she was less than enthusiastic about the accolade and even went onto lament how “TVB has never prioritised” her and that her “success is not thanks to TVB”.
Mimi, who is from Ipoh, started her career as a getai singer when she was 13. She went to Hongkong in the ‘70s and started performing at nightclubs there. She was later signed by Warner Records as a singer, and was even called the ‘Queen Of Cantonese Folk Songs’.
