Jay Pops


Jay Pops was born in West Samoa and grew up in New Zealand, where he was an active rugby player. He is currently studying in high school in Shepparton and loves to create video edits to dance music, inspired by an old school, hip-pop aesthetic and different vibes.

Jay is exploring creativity as a way to express struggle and to search for belonging. He imagines a world where more Polynesian youths are empowered to share their experiences, whether happy or sad, in the hopes that others will listen and relate.
