Proud Samoan Seiuli Dwayne sings ‘Tali mai ia oe lou au’
Samoa’s most famous Hollywood son, Seiuli Dwayne Johnson, is a very proud Samoan.
So much so he has just featured on a TV show in the United States viewed by millions of people singing a Samoan song.
Seiuli, who is promoting his latest film, Skyscraper, used the show to talk about his mother, Ata, coming from Samoa.
The Show’s host then asks him to sing a Samoan song.
He quickly came up with the “Tali mai ia, o oe lo’u au, sei faamalu ai lo’u mafaufau.”
Asked what it means, the Rock explained that: “Answer me oh my love, tell me one sin that I’m guilty of.”
But then he quickly followed up: “Just for the record, I’ve never looked a man directly in the eye and sang that.”
The Skyscraper is now showing at the Apollo Cinemas in Apia.
