BRISBANE-based Fijian rapper Sam Ratumaitavuki, better known as Fortafy, has revealed that a portion of proceeds from his debut Fiji shows would go towards assisting disadvantaged children.

Speaking at the Novotel Nadi, the 25-year-old said he was looking forward to spreading his music gospel to new fans in the country and meeting and distributing stationery and supplies to children affected by Tropical Cyclone Evan.

"It's great to be here," Fortafy said.

"When we were about to leave Brisbane, I heard about the heavy rains and flooding and I was just thinking about the children and my heart went out to them.

"I hope people turn out to watch my show because a portion of the proceeds will go towards assisting Fijian kids through the Pacific Smiles program."

The New Zealand and Australia chart-topping artist's debut performance in the country is supported by Pacific Smiles, Mix FM, Novotel Nadi and the Holiday Inn.

Fortafy will be at the Down Under pub in Suva this evening.
