Bursting onto the music scene is Rotorua Boy’s High School’s newly named Head Boy Hohaia Macfarlane. This talented 17-year-old has only been getting classical singing lessons for less than a year but already has raised the attention of local experts who pick him to have a big future. Growing up around music as the son of well-known local musicians Bruce and Leah Macfarlane, it was no surprise Hohaia had a musical ear. Lakeside 2018 – Whenua #itsabouthome will be Hohaia’s first big public appearance aside from being a key member of his school’s champion kapa haka group, Raukura. The genuine and humble youngster is taking all these opportunities in his stride as he prepares for a big year leading his school and setting his sights on joining the army in 2019.
