Kapamilya and Viva star singer-actor James Reid bagged the ‘Best Southeast Asia Act 2017’ at the MTV Europe Music Awards held recently.
KAMI learned about the news from PEP.ph
The Filipino-Australian actor bested six other nominees including, Faizal Tahir (Malaysia), Dam Vinh Hung (Vietnam), Isyana Sarasvati (Indonesia), Slot Machine (Thailand), The Sam Willows (Singapore), and social wildcard winner Palitchoke Ayanaputra (Thailand).
“Thank you MTV for awarding me with Best Southeast Asia Act. It is such an honor to be representing the Philippines. And with this recognition, I will keep on making music and bringing the Philippines to the world stage,” James said in a video message.
“At siyempre maraming, maraming salamat po sa lahat ng mga bumoto sa akin. Jadine fans, mahal ko kayo,” he said.
Last 2015, James was also nominated in the same category.
