Samoa’s most famous Hollywood son, Seiuli Dwayne Johnson, is a very proud Samoan. 

So much so he has just featured on a TV show in the United States viewed by millions of people singing a Samoan song.

Seiuli, who is promoting his latest film, Skyscraper, used the show to talk about his mother, Ata, coming from Samoa.

The Show’s host then asks him to sing a Samoan song.

He quickly came up with the “Tali mai ia, o oe lo’u au, sei faamalu ai lo’u mafaufau.”

Asked what it means, the Rock explained that: “Answer me oh my love, tell me one sin that I’m guilty of.”

But then he quickly followed up: “Just for the record, I’ve never looked a man directly in the eye and sang that.”

The Skyscraper is now showing at the Apollo Cinemas in Apia.
