Ah Boy of the Year: Tosh Zhang

Ah Boy of the Year: Tosh Zhang
Tosh Zhang wins Flame Awards for two years running. Last year, he won Breakout Star Of The Year, and this year, he won Ah Boy of The Year.

SINGAPORE- They dominated the local showbiz industry this year.

So much so that we decided to give these boys a category of their own - Ah Boy Of The Year.

It was a tough fight between the talented Tosh Zhang, smart-mouthed Wang Weiliang and good-looker Joshua Tan, the three actors who made it big after starring in Jack Neo's two-part Ah Boys To Men movies.

But 24-year-old Zhang proved that he was the Ah Boy to rule them all when he emerged champion, with an impressive 1,785 votes.

His on-screen army "brothers" Wang received 926 votes while Tan had 410 votes.

It is also the second consecutive year Zhang has won a Flame Award. Last year, he nabbed Breakout Star Of The Year.

"When I heard that I won this year, my first reaction was, 'Huh, really?' I was very surprised and happy because I didn't expect it. I am very thankful to my fans for always supporting me," Zhang told The New Paper.

"But like I said before, I feel that it is already a win for all three of us because TNP came up with a category just for us Ah Boys. It's very special and I feel like we are being recognised for our hard work and achievements this year."

It is obvious that the popular star, who has just finished filming for Neo's lion dance-themed movie The Lion Men, has a strong and ardent fan base.

And Zhang maintains a close relationship with his passionate fans by interacting with them on his personal Twitter page (@toshrock) regularly.

The vlogger-turned-actor said: "I start this hashtag #AskTosh whenever I am free and fans can ask me anything they want on Twitter. It's interesting to see what people want to find out about me. Sometimes, I get up to a few hundred questions (in the three hours I'm online)."

As for defeating his fellow Ah Boys, Zhang emphasised that there is no rivalry between them and added: "I'll treat them go makan!"
