Written by on January 17, 2022

This week on Native Tongues, Yannika checks out the brand new project from MOKOMOKAI, Pika Ocho and much more.


“This album is a true reflection and product of colonialism against an indigenous people. We dedicate this work to all the indigenous cultures around the world who have been affected by colonisation and as a result, have lost land, language, culture and identity.

Brokeboi Ace – Silver Lining

In the NZ music industry as both a member of the Young & $lept On (Y$O) collective and as a solo artist, rising polynesian artist BrokeBoi Ace has slowly been establishing himself in the music scene. Committed to repping his hood and his roots, his aspirations include bringing his introspective pen to life through his experiences and perception of the community he resides in. Proudly from Avondale, West Auckland, BrokeBoi is a strong independent character with much to say about what surrounds him, Following his latest energetic single “Watered Down Dreamz”, BrokeBoi Ace looks to release yet another introspective piece entitled; “Silver Lining” produced by local Auckland artists Aidan Fine and Eli Wilson. Silver Lining sheds light on the concept of meaning and purpose in a world which is becoming increasingly difficult to delineate.
