Samoan-born writer, director, playwright and actor Vai To'elau Osa Isa'ako Mase Kightley, known as Oscar, is widely regarded as a bit of a legend. 

But now it's official, with the announcement that he's won this year's Television Legend award at the New Zealand Television Awards.

On screen and behind the scenes, he’s been a driving force behind making Pasifika stories mainstream. 

He joins Kim to share some of his favourite songs, fresh off the plane from LA, where he attended the premiere of Taika Waititi's film Next Goal Wins, which he starred in.
