Schoolboys release first music album

WITHOUT depending on the authorities for a job, two secondary school students in Cakaudrove have started their own singing group and will launch their first album next week.

Assisted by well-known composer and group leader Lepani Tagicakibau, the students, Jone Senicevuga and Ifereimi Tabudovi, expect to make money from their album Voqa Vou ni Delai Nakorosaka.

The new group consist of five members who hail from Natuvu Village, Wailevu in Cakaudrove.

Tagicakibau, who has composed some popular songs sung by his cousins who form Drodrolagi kei Nautosolo, said the boys had always been part of church choirs and sigidrigi groups since childhood.

"They are talented musicians and this will be our first album together and for them, it is a form of self-employment," he said.

"They don't have to wait for jobs to come but they are making use of their God-given talent to earn money and support themselves."

The boys completed secondary school education this year — Senicevuga attended Saint Bedes College while Tabudovi attended All Saints Secondary School.

"It's all about helping yourself first before relying on government or other people to help you get jobs," said Senicevuga.
