The award-winning promo for the debut single by hip hop artist King Kapisi (Bill Urale) is a family affair: bookended by shots of his two-year-old son, directed by his sister Sima and produced by another sister, Makerita. The song is a plea to his Samoan people to remember their pre-colonial past: “feed your kids not the church”. Filmed underwater at Wellington’s Kilbirnie Aquatic Centre, the video has islander Kapisi swimming through a sea of lava-lava. It won gongs at 2004’s BFM, Mai Time, and Flying Fish awards and an NZ On Air 1000 Music Video Celebration nod.
