APRA 2013 Silver Scroll Awards

By Ripeka Timutimu

A song composed for the community of Christchurch following the tragic earthquakes in 2011 has won the Maioha Award at last night's APRA 2013 Silver Scroll Awards.

Winning awards isn't a new thing for Maisey Rika, but this award is extra special for her.

Maisey beat out other well-known artists and writers such as Ngatapa Black, Julian Wilcox and Kimo Winiata.

There's no doubt that she has the talent to reach the bastions of success again.
