Popular 1990s HK artiste Stephanie Lai Ming-sze dies at 58


Hong Kong singer and actor Stephanie Lai Ming Shi, who had several popular Cantopop hits in the 1990s, passed away today (March 28) at the age of 58, according to Chinese media reports.

Hong Kong singer and actor Stephanie Lai Ming-sze, who had several popular Cantopop hits in the 1990s, passed away from cancer today (March 28) at the age of 58, according to Chinese media reports.

Lai made her debut in the 1980s and released her first Cantonese album Besame in 1991. That year, she won Gold for New Female Singer at the Ultimate Song Chart Awards. She was also awarded the Bronze in the Most Popular Newcomer category at the 1991 Jade Solid Gold awards. Her better-known hits were songs like Goodbye My Love, Long That Cannot Be Stopped, and Unconditional Love.

Her career was relatively short-lived though – final album was in 1994, a compilation album titled Really Miss You. Lai retired from showbiz in 1994, citing a lack of oppurtunities.

Lai married banker Eric Fung in 1998, but the couple divorced in 2004. In 2017, she caused a stir when she came out of the closet with partner 'Kelly', whom she had known for more than 30 years.

Lai also starred in several movies and TV series during her short career, including 1988 film The Inspector Wears Skirts and TVB series The Serpentine Romance in 1990.
