Would you believe it?! This hori got another year on TV!! Don't
For everyone who doesn't know who this 23 year old hori is, my full name's Oliver Tukino Coddington, Olly for short. I'm of Maori, Rarotongan and European descent, and although I'm from in-land tribes, I grew up in the ataahua west coast town of Whaingaroa (Raglan). So unsurprisingly, I like to surf lots and hang at the beach... hard.
I've been living in Tamaki Makaurau for over 3 years now though, and this is my 2nd year with the Mai Time whanau. Needless to say, last year was fantizzleTASTIC!! I had SO much fun, met so many awesome people... and I even got some of my very talented friends and whanau on the show!
I'm hoping this year will be similar, and alas, it's already off to a tu meke, wicked start! You know how Mai Time does it!! We wanna show you the things that make our nation of Aotearoa the beautiful, happening place it is, by talking to the beautiful, happening people that make it happen! Booyah!!
Mai Time's back to spread the love!!
