Native Affairs - Unsung Hero

Steve Apirana is one of NZ's iconic Christian musicians.

With five gospel albums under his belt, Steve regularly tours the world - spreading the word in prisons, schools, pubs and churches alike.

His pathway to redemption wasn't easy though and he often shares his testimony as a former street kid, drug addict and solo dad.

Iulia Leilua caught up with Steve during his recent tour of the East Coast at his Mum's home of Tikitiki.
