The most popular ‘People’s Choice’ award, Anugerah Bintang Popular BH (ABPBH) started in 1987. Back then, it was called Anugerah Penyanyi dan Pelakon Popular (APPP) with only seven categories contested. This annual award ceremony recognises professionals in the entertainment industry, including the film and record industry.

BH readers will cast their votes for their favourite artists to fill the top five spots for each of the 16 categories including the Most Popular Artiste award. Series of road shows filled with fun activities involving the top five finalists were held in different states to promote the event. ABPBH helps at elevating the standard of local artistes and personalities to a higher level.
