Netizens Accussed The Voice SGMY Organizers Racist

Netizens, aspiring artists and local celebrities are furious at The Voice Singapore and Malaysia organisers, StarHub for calling participants to be “fluent in Mandarin and able to perform songs in Mandarin.”

The show that made famous in the US and UK, has been called out for being ‘racist’ and not inclusive in its requirements.

The Marketing Interactive reported that Gomez on his official Facebook page, voiced his disappointment in the organisers of The Voice on the direction they were taking on this version of the show, especially the Mandarin-fluency requirement.

Local Mediacorp radio station 987 DJ Joakim Gomez, is among the prominent local celebrities who started his entertainment career following his time as a contestant on singing-competition Singapore Idol.
