P-pop boy group SB19 is beyond grateful to its fans after it was named Artist of the Year, and earned two more prizes in the Myx Music Awards yesterday, Aug. 7.
“We have won [three] awards for tonight’s #MYXAwards2021, A’TIN!” the group addressed its fans through a Twitter post on the same day.
They won the Artist of the Year award, besting girl group MNL48, singer Moira Dela Torre, folk pop band Ben&Ben and actress Nadine Lustre. The group also earned the Song of the Year and Music Video of the Year awards for the 2020 hit “Alab.”
