‘Fa’afafine’s Got Talent (F.G.T)’ is a new show under the umbrella of the Samoa Fa’afafine Association to showcase the fa’afafine’s talent this year.

The theme for this year’s show is “I am in to own it”.

“The theme is pretty straight forward,” said Asia Alosio Stanley.

“Fa’afafines should enter F.G.T. with the positive mental capability that she is in the competition to own it for her; entering F.G.T. simply means that she has a goal to achieve which is to become the owner of F.G.T.”

As for the purpose of the event: This is to provide the platform for the talented and unique faafafines of Samoa who did not have access to platform as such,” said Stanley.

“This is an opportunity for the Fa’afafines of Samoa to build their personal capacity.

“It is a pure work of love and charity; this is the charitable segment of the work by the Fa’afafines of Samoa. 

“[And] most especially this is an opportunity for the Fa’afafines of Samoa to make their families proud. 

“Who knows? Someone from Hollywood might catch a unique talent on social media by the Fa’afafines that they have never seen before.”

Moreover, Stanley went on to say that the objective of the event is to bring to light the many unique talents that have not been exposed. 

“It is about having the ability to confidently showcase talents to Samoa and the world. It’s about strengthening relationships among the Fa’afafine Association in Samoa as well as obtaining a golden experience as an actor, actress and a performer on the F.G.T stage.

“And lastly to complete a charitable segment of the S.F.A’s pure work of love and charity for the community.”

Stanley acknowledged the support of his Production team the Reigning Miss S.F.A Charlize, Blondie, Keyonce, Mandy, Ashley, Marlene, Aoge and all members of the Samoa Faafafine Association.

The Executive Producer went on to say that part of the proceeds would go to Mapuifagalele and the Olomanu Juvenile Prison at Mulifanua.

They acknowledge the support of their sponsor Taumeasina Island Resort, Janets, S.S.A.B, Southern Stars and Rowena Penfold.
