In 1993 Janet Jackson dropped the video for her hit track 'That's the way love goes' - It's the longest running No.1 single of any member of the Jackson family on the @Billboard Hot 100.
But did you know the Samoan/Kiwi connection in Janets iconic video? Kobra & Ganxsta Ridd from Boo Yaa Tribe makes a cameo and Suga Pop plays Janets love interest.
Suga Pop is a Samoan street dancer who specialises in 'popping and locking' and is one of the members of the Electric Boogaloos. He's worked with some of the biggest names in the industry - from Michael Jackson, James Brown, and Lionel Richie to Sheila E. He's also performed with and/or produced hip-hop acts such as A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Cypress Hill, Brand and LL Cool J.
You may have heard of his family here in NZ too - his father Pasi Tunupopo opened the first drag club in Wellington called 'The Purple Onion' and his cousin Luamanuvao Dame Winifred Laban was recently appointed a Dame Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit last year for services to education and the Pacific community.
One of Pops youngest cousins is hip hop artist and rapper David Dallas.
