So KoNt3xt, a.k.a. Jake, or BROni, is a new guy in the ville – yes! Fresh meat. I first noticed him when one girl hit me up – sounding like she was tryna tell me something – and said he was *sigh* ‘really cool’. So I played welcoming committee, as I do, and got to the business of diggin up his story.
First thing I learned is he makes pizza…oohh… Apparently they’re good. Says he does one with taro leaves even! Now that I gotta try some day.. And THEN I heard him sing.. awwwww… strummin on a uke. He’s got a band, and big plans. He’s got projects, plural! He’s a student of business and music, who skates. And catches sharks (they just leap into his bear hands, he says!) AAND, he aint too grown to watch Dora the Explorer.
Vamonos, amigos! Let’s get him to tell us more… 😀
Name / Location
The names Jake aka Kontext and I reside in American Samoa for now..
How did you find One Samoana?

What’s the funniest/craziest thing you ever witnessed/did in the village
The funniest thing I witnessed was the time I started the BRO-DOWN on here… caught on real quick… No bromo tho.. If you do not know about the Bro-down ask Sharky or OmG’eezburka lol they know…
What’s an experience you had that made you SO proud to be Samoan?
Everyday I am proud to be who I am. I know I am a afakasi, but I know my heart is full Samoan. We bleed the same blood family.. Everyday is a blessing to me because i am Samoan. We are most def. a unique culture and I am proud of that.

I have followed those words wisely and it has gotten me further than i can imagine. Same love goes out to all of youse out there around the world. Let’s build up, not break down my ninjas.. One Love.
HGG Notes about KoNt3xT:
* Real Eyes Realize Real Lies …one of the things that make you go hhhhhhmmmmmmm in BROni’s faleo’o
* Did he just have a birthday? HAPPY BIRTHDAY BROni!!!
* Oh and it’s BROni cause I was calling him pizzaboy for a while and he decided he’d rather be called pepperBROni … what the innovation!
* “I search no more for the shadows of the world whips at my back. / I am trampled to the ground / beaten by the standards. / Jaded is my name, and I will search no more” … a few lines from what is probably my favourite of the verses he’s penned.
* He’s only been here for a little while, but he’s already building up a following (I’m sure it aint just me!) and he’s promising some pretty intriguing things for the near future. Can’t spill ALL his secrets just yet, but trust me. You might just want to Watch This Space. 😉
