RTHK's Top 10 Chinese Gold Songs Awards will be held on January 7, 2011. [Oriental Daily] received news from a reliabe source that the two major record companies EEG and East Asia will cut their attendance with RTHK. All singers under EEG and East Asia will not only boycott the RTHK music awards presentation, but also be absent from the "10 Excellent Singer" nominations event held on the 31st of December. This is clearly not giving face to RTHK.
It was said that the royalty issues between TVB and the Big 4 exploded a bomb. In November, for the "4 Station Joint Music Awards", RTHK proposed to stop the 'Media Award' for this year. As RTHK did not consult with the other major labels about the decision, EEG and East Asia were angered and felt that RTHK was clearly bias, helping their good friend Big 4. Since then, EEG and East Asia announced together they will never take part in the '4 Station Joint Music Awards' again. Two weeks later, RTHK announced that they have cut the 'Media Choice Award', even MetroInfo did not dare to oppose and make excuses.
