Wong began his career as a DJ at Commercial Radio Hong Kong in 1984. In the following year, he answered a singer-wanted advertisement in a music magazine posted by a composer and guitarist Tats Lau. They then formed the group Tat Ming Pair, which was later signed by Polygram. After the group disbanded in 1990, Wong continued as a solo singer and later as a producer. In the mid 90s, he reached the peak of his musical career with songs like '’Blow Up'’ (春光乍洩), 每日一禁果 (literally "A Forbidden Fruit-Once a Day").

In 1999, he founded the music production company People Mountain People Sea with a group of artists and musicians in Hong Kong. The company produced and published albums not only for high-profiled Pop singers like Leslie Cheung, Faye Wong, Sandy Lam, Eason Chan, Nicholas Tse and Miriam Yeung, but also published works for other relatively "alternative/ experimental" singers, composers, bands and groups, such as at17 and PixelToy.

Personal life

Wong had been noted in the past as "deliberately ambiguous – or better: opaque – about his sexual identity". Following the conclusion of his concert series at the Hong Kong Coliseum in April 2012, Wong publicly came out as gay, stating "People don't need to guess whether or not I'm a tongzhi (同志) anymore...I'm saying, I'm gay. I'm a homosexual. G-A-Y."
