Four months ago, Namewee was named the winner in two categories at the 41st Annual Telly Awards for his “Getaway to Kaohsiung” music video.
Not one to hog the limelight, however, the Malaysian multi-hyphenate is sharing the wins with the titular Taiwanese city, whose tourism bureau he collaborated with in making the MV.
The trophies for the two wins (Gold Winner under the Online – General Music Video category, and Silver Winner under the Television – General Music Video category) were recently delivered from the US to Taiwan.
Namewee then took it upon himself to personally deliver the two trophies to the Tourism Bureau of Kaohsiung City Government.
He uploaded a couple of photos of this on his Facebook, stating that the awards were not for him alone and belonged to the city as well.
He expressed his gratitude to the tourism bureau for putting their trust in him to create a song and a video to promote the city, and also thanked everyone who was involved in the making of the award-winning MV.
