Inspiration:
“I look at my family and a lot of them make their dreams a reality. So I wrote with that in mind. [The track Hopukia te tao] It is about being brave, speaking up and making choices. Cousin Hira with our family dialect, Paddy Free's production with stunning musical composition from Gareth Farr was the perfect collaboration for this song.”
