Famous for their songs, Onetox from Solomon Islands has created many fans among many Papua New Guineans.
For the second time around, Onetox yet again put on a successful show as they performed in Papua New Guinea on their Wantok Island Reggae Tour.
This time only featuring Onetox and Small Jam whereas the first tour which was the Solwara Reggae Tour included DMP.
The group who performed in Port Moresby and Lae over the weekend, has certainly given most fans satisfaction in performing live especially for those who missed the first show which was held some time back in March.
Speaking on behalf of the group, Kaye aka Kofi Bwoy, shared with PNGHAUSBUNG an insight of some of their hit songs performed during those nights including songs titled, Stress, High Grade, Heart of Mine and from Small Jam was the song titled, December.
“Most of these songs we performed were songs we did not sing during our first tour so for our second tour, we did so.”
Onetox along with Small Jam decided to do a second tour due to the demand from fans. Kofi said many of their fans had missed out on their first tour, so they decided to make sure that everyone had a chance to see them perform.
The second tour also included a special dedication to one of their first band members, Samuel Aitorea also known as Sasa Bwoy.
He was a great musician whose legacy will continue to live on in music.
According to Kofi, the band dedicated this to him and to show others that music lives on. In addition to this, Kofi shared some of the highlights of how Onetox came to be as a group and how it all started for them especially making a name for themselves at an international level.
“It started back in 2005, that some of the boys including Taina Gee, Dehvande and Mossa had just founded the group.”
“It started off as friends who knew each other and through their potential as singers, got a chance to record songs together and naming the group, Onetox.”
It was then that their first song titled “Ramukanji” was a hit especially in the Pacific back in 2008.
“This was the first song that made us Onetox, and it was then that people realized that we had potential.”
Kofi said that although everyone is now doing their own individual projects and creating own singles and albums, they are still committed to the group Onetox to carry on the name.
