Song Contest

Immortal Songs’ is a popular Korean singing platform aired on the Korea Broadcasting Station (KBS) entertainment since 2011.

Mr Loga, 33, was among the seven international singers, and he finally appeared on the stage last and sang the number ‘Our Story’ by Korean singer Yoon Hyung-joo which was translated into Fiji’s traditional farewell song ‘Isa Isa Vulagi Lasa Dina’.

Mr Loga, as a foreign singer, showed extraordinary singing skills on the first day of 2022. He gave a sheer thrill with his rocking voice. He couldn’t hide his emotions as he lifted his trophy prize.

“So proud to have performed ‘Isa Isa vulagi lasa dina’ on a global platform and to win this episode with a Fijian song. I give all glory and honour to God,” he said.

“Hope that I will continue to inspire many Fijians back home that anything is possible if you believe. Work hard and stay focused. Never give up and last, but never the least trust in God.”

 

Mr Loga has participated in many famous TV audition programmes in Korea and gained huge popularity, which raised interest in Fiji among the Korean people.

He also sang Korean songs during the 2020 Pasifika Prime Voce Encore Concert.

Mr Loga, a former Suva Grammar student, wanted to become a singer in Fiji.

The champion of ‘Immortal Songs’ New Year’s special said his life as a singer has not always been smooth sailing.

While he was deliberating about his career path, a Korean missionary who majored in vocal music coincidently listened to his song and suggested that he should study music in Korean.

The Lau native is based in Seoul, South Korea as a crossover artist. He started his singing career in the famous Fijian Mic Show (first season).  At a young age he moved to South Korea.

After a year of study, Mr Loga entered Kosin University in Busan, South Korea where he met his only teacher, Professor Ahn Min and approached him to help make his dream career as a singer.

Since then he has completed his Bachelors Classical Vocal and Studied Graduate School of Music (Masters).
