Local busker Jeff Ng will perform at Golden Village (GV) Vivocity on Sep 9 as part of the organisation’s efforts to “support the local busking community”. 

The music showcase comes after GV’s inaugural run of the Lights, Camera, Busking Live! event, which featured Jason Yu, Arya Yunata, Angie Goh, on Aug 6. 

In its Facebook post announcing the showcase, GV said: “GV… is happy to bring you a second edition of busking performance by having homegrown singer-songwriter Jeff Ng at GV for a music showcase! 

“Come sing along as you catch him perform live at GV VivoCity on Sep 9”. 

Tickets to the showcase, which starts at 7.30pm, ​​costs $18 for GV members and $20 for the public. 

In a post on his Facebook page, Jeff expressed his gratitude towards organisers Golden Village and his sponsors for believing in him and his music despite “recent controversies.”

After he rose to fame in June while performing at the Cathay, Jeff received flak online following allegations of abuse posted online by his ex-girlfriend during their relationship.

Subsequent posts by netizens also criticised his attitude, such as shushing fans as he performed. 

Jeff later went on a short hiatus in July, where he cancelled several gigs, citing concerns about the rising number of COVID-19 cases,  before making his public return on Jul 30 at the imPAct Open House. 

GV’s announcement of Jeff’s performance at VivoCity was also met with mixed reactions from netizens.

Some were looking forward to his performance, with one Facebook user Yiling Loh commenting: “Finally! And thanks alot GV! I am so looking forward to listening to him sing in the comfort of the air-con.”

But others were not so kind, going as far to poke fun at Jeff for his past actions. 

User Derrick Yap wrote: “Please remember to cue the audience to applaud after each performance otherwise the performer will get angry and scold them.”

Apart from his performance at GV, Jeff also announced in his Facebook post that he is releasing a new single later this month on Aug 28.

Tickets for Jeff Ng’s performance at GV VivoCity can be purchased online on GV’s website. More than half of the seats in the cinema hall have been purchased.

Fans can also buy Jeff’s album for $12 on Sep 9 at the event, which includes an autograph session.

Youthopia has reached out to GV for more information.
