The man responsible for organising Tofiga Fepulea’i’s first solo tour in Samoa is looking forward to a great show on Wednesday night. Etu Tusitala, better known as Sir Life, is behind E-Life Events, which is organising the premier of Tofiga’s new show, I Gan’t beliv it.
“We are happy and excited to bring Tofiga Fepuleai for his first solo tour to Samoa, to motivate and empower our people through his extensive experience and charismatic personality,” he told the Sunday Samoan.
Sir Life is particularly looking forward to Tofiga’s visits to schools and the chance to share his experience with Samoans.
“I believe this is a vital time for our people to have this kind of event. He is a comedian of high profile, who has experienced success, was at the top but then everything was taken from him."
“This realisation of ‘no hope’ was real and it is the reality that some of our people are currently experiencing."
“Yet through faith in God, with family support and determination, Tofiga was able to get back on his feet."
“Tofiga’s past experiences, renewed spirit, charismatic personality and his new passion to empower and motivate people - all will bring much encouragement and hope to our people (including the youth).”
But it would not be a Tofiga show without laughter.
“Our Samoan culture embraces laughter and to have Tofiga share messages to both young and old in such joyful manner, I am convinced that this familiarity will have positive and successful outcomes.”
Tofiga is scheduled to touch down in Samoa tonight.
On Wednesday at Taumeasina Island Resort, he will reveal his new “I Gant Belive It” show.
“The one thing I will be emphasising during this visit to Samoa is the importance of surrounding yourself with good people,” Tofiga said.
“It doesn't matter the number of people you surround yourself with but the quality of people who have around you. Everyone goes through tough times and most of the time its the people you have around that can make the difference of whether you get back up or stay down.”
What can people expect?
“I’ve had a couple of Shows in NZ so far with my Wellington Show just a couple of weeks ago. I premiered my "I Gan't belive it" show to a sellout crowd in Auckland in April.
“The support and feedback from people who have seen the show has been overwhelming and humbling. And now I’m going to be performing my solo show in Samoa and for me it’s a big thing.
“I look forward to visiting Samoa to perform my show but most of all to be able to be more involved with projects focusing on young people in Samoa. It’s been awesome to connect again with my good friend Etu Life to plan this trip to Samoa. I’m looking forward to sharing some of my experiences and life lessons with the students at some of the local schools in Samoa.”
