HOLLYWOOD REMEMBERS HOW BIZARRE SINGER, PAULY FUEMANA, WHO PASSED AWAY AGED 40
Undoubtedly Pauly Fuemana of The Otara Millionaires Club wrote a song that still best describes Hollywood today. He is remembered in Hollywood today by Horiwood, as the singer passes away aged 40.
Says Billboard: “OMC frontman Pauly Fuemana, the man behind what is likely to be the most successful New Zealand single of all time, How Bizarre, died in Auckland, New Zealand on Sunday (Jan. 31) after a short period of illness. He was 40.
The South Auckland rapper’s 1995 single “How Bizarre” is one of the few New Zealand songs to become an international break-out hit. It is estimated that the song and album of the same name generated sales of well over 3 million worldwide.”
Sad. Pauly is survived by his wife and five children. For more, go here.
In a way, Pauly Fuemana was like the unique Samoan Elvis of New Zealand’s Pacific Islands musical sound. His one hit wonder became an anthem, like a prophesy foretelling a sound of New Zealand music, that is still to come. He was a New Zealand legend and growing up, we loved him. Pauly’s song is still a goodie. :)
