Marcus Chin Used To Make S$543 A Day As A Performer In The ’80s, But He Squandered All His Money On Food, Alcohol & Women
"Going after women requires spending money. I bought them bags, watches, branded lighters,” said the 67-year-old veteran star about his freewheeling early days in showbiz on this week's episode of Hear U Out.
Marcus Chin has worn many hats throughout his career, which started a long, long time ago in the '70s.
The 67-year-old veteran star, who is now best known for being part of Love 972’s super popular The Breakfast Quartet, is an actor, host, singer, a getai performer, an acting coach, a scriptwriter, and these days, a live streamer.
What many do not know is that Marcus was one of the most sought-after hosts and singers in the region in the ‘70s and ‘80s. Fans from Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia would profess their undying love for him, and would turn up in droves to watch him perform.
At the peak of his popularity, Marcus was raking in the big bucks. Unfortunately, he ended up squandering most, if not all of of his earnings as he recalled on this week’s episode of Hear U Out.
