A day later, I was allowed to go on stage to work as a soldier, from then on, I ate rice from my ancestors, and gradually I was brought up to sing a double song.
My real name is Truong Hoang Kep, Chau Tuan has just given his stage name Chau Kep, after a while he changed it to Chau Kiet. But in the province, there are too many artists with this name, once I was mistakenly recognized, the gangsters came to the group with knives. Luckily that time I escaped, I was too scared so I changed it to Tieu Long. At that time, I also idolized Mr. Kim Tu Long, hesitated many times, then decided to go to Thay Thim’s palace to pray to meet his idol and ask for the word ‘Kim’ to be accepted as a disciple.”

He said: “I stayed at home waiting for people to invite me to act but didn’t see anyone. Until one day, Mr. Phuong Hoang called to take the tuong to study. It rained heavily that day, but no matter how much it rained, I ran away. I was so happy that I ran without brakes and ran a red light, so I bumped into a cyclist whose car broke in two; Only 30,000 in her pocket for her to keep temporarily.
My life has only played 3 plays of Mr. Phuong Hoang, but for me, he is a great teacher, benefactor and brother.”
