Dei Hamo arrived in the first wave of New Zealand hip-hop during the late 80s. He helped popularise the new sounds coming out of South Auckland and created bridges by working with a wide range of artists from different backgrounds.
Urban Pacifika Records
Since becoming a music video director, Sani has created videos for Pieter T, Devolo, and Smashproof (as well as videos for Deach and Tyree’s solo projects).
Six of the tracks on Dei Hamo’s album First Edition were produced in collaboration with John Chong-Nee, who was a member of AKA Brown back in the days of Urban Pacifika. Dei Hamo also guested on Chong-Nee’s album Just Getting By On Love (2006).
