International pop and R & B sensation and multi-talented singer, dancer, host and song writer Billy Crawford landed in Hong Kong recently for the filming of The Ultimate BROcation, a new reality TV series, created by action entertainment TV channel KIX. The Ultimate BROcation will capture all the fun and hilarity of Billy and three other Asian male celebrities, as they experience Hong Kong as the ultimate guy’s playground.
Billy Crawford is a prolific recording artist who has topped the charts in Holland, Belgium, France and Switzerland, and sold almost two million records. He was also awarded the International Male Artist of the Year in France. Billy’s star is still on the rise and his latest album ‘Groove’ bagged a gold record award. He is also one of the performers and hosts on top-rated TV shows such as ASAP, It’s Showtime, Pilipinas Got Talent, Your Face Sounds Familiar and Pinoy Boyband Superstar. Billy adds his hyper active personality, biting wit and often bizarre sense of humor to this new mix of bros which includes popular Thai TV and radio host DJ PK; multi-talented and award-winning Malaysian singer, rapper, song writer and graffiti artist SonaOne; and Singaporean maverick chef and restaurateur Bjorn Shen.
The Ultimate BROcation is a five-episode reality series following the adventures of four male celebrities as they revel in an all-expenses paid vacation of every guy’s fantasy in Hong Kong. The show will be filled with parties, exhilarating activities, fantastic food, beautiful ladies, cool gadgets and some solid male-bonding. The four guys may start off as strangers but will end up as “bros” after experiencing the “brocation” of a lifetime. Joining the four bros in a cameo appearance is Hong Kong martial arts star Philip Ng. Most recently seen on the hit action TV drama A Fist Within Four Walls and the martial arts epic Once Upon A Time In Shanghai, Philip will show the bros his city and act as an advisor during their “brocation”.
“My life and my career have never been conventional, and this show is the next chapter of what has been an incredible adventure. As a person who has always relished traveling, working and performing abroad and being exposed to different cultures and experiences, I really can’t wait to discover the highlights of Hong Kong, one of the most vibrant, cosmopolitan and exhilarating destinations in the world, especially for bros,” he exclaims.
Because he exhibited his talent for performing at a very young age, Billy has been in the spotlight since he was a child. His talents were phenomenal enough for a global audience, and as such, he has enjoyed his global celebrity stature. His travels and early exposure to multiple cultures have combined to make Billy an adventurer, a lover of life and the quintessential guy’s guy—endearing traits that make it difficult to imagine a better bro to go on “brocation” with.
The Ultimate BROcation is produced by KIX’s parent company, Celestial Tiger Entertainment – operator of the largest bouquet of pan-Asian channels dedicated to Asian entertainment, and Endemol Shine Group, the global production house responsible for the award-winning MasterChef, Big Brother series. The show is supported by Hong Kong Tourism Board, and sponsors Cathay Pacific and the Harbour Grand Hong Kong. The Ultimate BROcation will air first and exclusively on KIX.
KIX is available on Cablelink Ch.54, Cignal TV Ch. 133, Destiny Cable Ch.63, Gsat Ch. 18 and SKYcable Ch.63.
