Fuemana was the lead singer of the music duo, OMC (Otara Millionaires Club) the full name of the band is a tongue-in-cheek reference to Otara's status as one of the poorest suburbs of Auckland.

The song, which was named Single of the Year at the 1996 New Zealand Music Awards, hit number one around the world, including Australia, Ireland and New Zealand.
