Maaka Fiso (29) was a finalist in the first season of X Factor New Zealand in 2013. At the time, he trended on social media with his soulful rendition of Titanium, putting Sia’s version back into the New Zealand Top 10 iTunes charts.

In June 2015, he moved to Auckland to focus on his music career and has since been working with Waatea Music on nummerous songs in English and Te Reo Māori.
