Tihei Harawira has faced adversity all his life. Diagnosed with autism and dyslexia as a child, he remembers always feeling behind at school.

Socially he was aware that he didn’t quite ‘fit’, and the bullying he suffered is a permanent scar from this time. But a chance encounter with two musicians set Tihei on the path to discovering his own unique way of connecting with others – freestyle rapping.

If you head to the Otara Markets in South Auckland on a Saturday you are likely to come across an autistic free-styling rapper called Tihei Harawira. Originally from Kaitaia, Tihei now spends weekends at the Otara Markets where he turns any subject market patrons give him into a free-style rap.

He spent over 6 months in the studio crafting out his album named 'Tihei Life' that he released on feb 4th 2016. He has also released 3 videos from the album 'Whakatane':

'Music' feat Devolo

'Great Emcee FT Slip Of The Tongue And Kortaz'

In 'May NZ Music Month' Tihei will be touring around NZ with local hiphop station Rep Fm (NZ's # 1 hiphop Station) & support acts
