8:06 Savage - I Love the Islands

Samoans are a proud people, and a source of that pride in recent times has been the Stateside successes of South Auckland's own hip hop pop star Savage. His single Swing has now clocked up 1.5 million sales and counting, and the upward trajectory of his career has brought his label Dawn Raid Entertainment back from the brink. In I Love the Islands, Sam Wicks rolls with Samoan rap royalty on the return home to shoot the video to Savage's new single I Love the Islands and feel the Island love.
