Danny Leaosavaii
Music Executive/Entrepreneur, New Zealand

The current domination of New Zealand's music scene by artists and groups of Pacific Island descent can be attributed to one visionary Samoan. Danny Leaosavaii (aka Brotha D)is described as the "Godfather" of New Zealand hip-hop; the one who broke down the barriers for Pacific Island entertainers to hit the mainstream. With Andy Murnane he started a business empire, Dawn Raid Entertainment in 1999. From humble beginnings they went from selling T-shirts to starting their own record label. Their empire now includes a clothing store, graphic design consultancy, hair dressers and several unique New Zealand clothing labels. Leaosavaii has some of the country's top artists in his stable including Adeaze, Scribe, Aaradhna, Savage and the Deceptikonz, who've had success locally and in Australia. - Pacific Magazine
