The Quarter Final draw for the Faletalimalo Siva Afi Challenge took place last Tuesday evening at Ooh la la Ice-cream Bar Matautu Tai, during Siva Afi Entertainment’s fire knife and cultural show.

During the last ten weeks, hotels and resorts around Samoa have been bringing two of their fire knife dancers to the show to compete against each other during the elimination rounds of the challenge. One of their performers would be eliminated and the other chosen to go through to the quarter finals.

On Tuesday evening, participating hotels and resorts drew numbers to determine who they would compete against in the quarter finals. 

The results of that draw are:

Week 1: Taumeasina Resort vs Jet Over Hotel

Week 2: Le Manumea Hotel vs Le Lagoto Resort

Week 3: Sheraton Hotel Apia vs Return to Paradise Resort

Week 4: Tanoa Tusitala Hotel vs Amoa Resort

Week 5: Sa’Moana Resort vs Sheraton Resort Mulifanua

The top three performers of the Faletalimalo Siva Afi Challenge will receive:


1st Place $1000

2nd Place $800

3rd Place $600

Event organizer Leota Lene Leota of Siva Afi Entertainment said “The Faletalimalo Siva Afi Challenge is the first of its kind anywhere in the world. I really want to thank the hotels and resorts that have supported the challenge from the start.” Leota also thanked supporters Radio Polynesia and the Samoa Observer, and announced that Seafood Gourmet has donated the $1000 prize money for the overall winner of the challenge. 

Next Tuesday during the Siva Afi show, the first quarter final will see Upega Upega from Taumeasina Island Resort Challenge Vaela’a Iloa from the Jet Over Hotel.
