Black Tie International:
DYF Entertainment and CEO Mrs. Ma, UN Peace Day, New York

Huayu China (DYF Entertainment) & CEO Ma 

in UN Peace Day New York

by Blair Zhou, Pacific Finance, Beijing


Peace comes at the cost of human casualties. United Nations is the first and the foremost important world organization founded in the wake of World War II. The key guiding principal is to promote peace in the world.

Marked by 70 million fatalities, including those killed due to natural disasters, hunger, lack of medicine and doctors, spread of infectious disease, conscription, enlistment of laborers and genocide, World War II nearly wiped out humanities. Among those 70 million deaths, the Soviet Union accounts for 26.6 million and China 18 million, followed by Germany, Japan, Italy, America and Britain. On January 1st of 1942, delegates from 26 countries including US, China, Britain and Soviet Union published Declaration by United Nations. On July 25th of 1945, delegates from 50 countries convened UN Conference of International Organizations. On June 26th, delegates of 50 countries signed UN Charter. On October 24th, UN Charter came into effect, marking the founding of United Nations. Currently, United Nations has 193 member states.

International Peace Day

On September 7th of 2001, UN General Assembly passed a resolution deciding September 21st of each year as The UN Peace Day, starting 2002. According to this resolution, all UN member states, all organizations, regional organizations, NGO and individuals in UN system could celebrate The UN Peace Day and observe global cease-fire. The UN Peace Day is scheduled to take place on the third Tuesday of September of each year, which coincides with the opening of UN General Assembly in New York.

Not only is Paul active in American communities, especially in Upper East Side where his home is, Paul also pays special attention to the Chinese community. In the 90s, Paul introduced Chinese city of Harbin to American viewers through PBS—the first time a Chinese city was broadcast by American television station. In 2009, Paul accompanied the famous director of Crouching Tiger & Hidden Dragon An Lee for the making of Woodstock Festival film.

Paul was the host of one of the Woodstock Festivals in subsequent years. Thanks to these events, Paul has established friendships with many top musicians, filmmakers, directors, scriptwriters, producers and artists in New York.

Despite 2020 Covid-19 , Paul still held the UN Peace Day Party. Like the 2020 Grammy Awards ceremony, Paul’s Peace Day party celebration was also held on line.  Artists received real-time interviews at home and sang their favorite songs in their living room. The performance and commentary lasted two hours, about 50 artists, musicians and cultural ambassadors made wishes for world peace.
The event was supported by IBM.

Among the singers and performers, there are two prominent Chinese ladies. The first is Ms Yue-Sai Kan. Referred to as the woman who changed “the Middle Kingdom through lipstick”,  Yue-Sai’s lipsticks had beautified millions of Chinese women during the early Chinese Reform Years. Her “One World” show in the early 90s by CCTV received over 400 million Chinese viewers. The show had provided a window for China to look at the world and for the Americans to look at China. Yue-Sai’s charming and vivacious hosting style and language talents won her multiple Emmy awards.

Another Chinese lady  is Ms Ma Xiaoqiu. Ms Ma is Chairman of the Board of a Hong Kong listed multi-billion dollar investment firm, stock code 612. She is also the follower of Yue-Sai Kan in fashion and trend. Her first lipstick is Yue-Sai’s brand-Chinese Red. Her first make-up bible is also that by Yue Sai. In Paul’s opinion, these two gorgeous Chinese ladies represent the innovative spirit of Chinese women as well as Chinese spirit of charity. The wealth creation doesn’t end in oneself, but for a collective good at large.

In Paul’s video, we see Yue-Sai Kan donated large sum of personal protective gears and equipment to police stations and medical staffs in Hawaii and in New York, her two homes, while Ms Ma donated medical supplies in China and a heart-warming anti-epidemic song The Prayer in New York.

Peace Day Party was hosted by global superstar
Michael Douglas,
winner of multiple Oscars and America Film Institute Life Achievement Award. As UN goodwill ambassador, Douglas once said, “We have only one world. Let’s take good care of it.”  “Greed is Good” in “Wall Street” 1987 probably played a role in the subsequent economic boom in the US. In 2010, Douglas collaborated again with Olive Stone to produce “Wall Street II: Money Never Sleeps.” On January 2019, “The Kominsky Method” wan Douglas award for Best Actor in a Television Series—Musical and Comedy category.

Another guest of honor worthy of our attention is Founder and President of Family Film Awards, Dr. Olympia Gellini.  In 1996, with Dick Clark as his partner, and with Clinton’s blessing, Olympia Gellini established the Family Film Awards. Among the first recipients were Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock, Ron Howard and Robin Williams. To Dr Gellini, family film awards is the vehicle to bring unity and peace of the world through family entertainment. “The respect to each other’s culture is the weapon to minimize and destroy discrimination, root of all modern evils,” says Dr. Olympia Gellini.

Interviewed by Pacific Finance on DYF Entertainment and its prospect in New York, given US China tension and decoupling talks and acts, Paul observes positively that Ms Ma’s film and television studio in New York—DYF Entertainment-is here to stay and grow.

“I visited Ms Ma in Shenzhen and I attended her company gala of ten thousand investor, in her and her company combine the financial strength and film-making creativity. The synergy is there, the drive is there, the market is there. I have no doubt DYF Entertainment will not do well. The world needs positive energy, hope and peace,”
said Paul.
