I'm not kidding you with this feller :laugh:

Tupuola Tufuga Efi, also known as Tuiatua Tupua Tamasese Efi,[1][2] and formerly known as Tupuola Efi, (born March 1, 1938) is a former Prime Minister of Samoa, serving two terms, and the current head of state of Samoa. On 16 June 2007 he was elected as O le Ao o le Malo, Samoa's head of state, for a five-year term.[3] He was officially sworn in as O le Ao o le Malo at Samoa's Parliament (Fono) on 20 June 2007.[1]

His mother is probably (at least she's familiy) a granddaughter of Swedish trader August Nilspeter Gustav Nelson and his Samoan wife,[1] Sina Masoe, whose family had links to the Sa Tupua (a prominent chiefly family). His name Taisi is a matai chief title from his mother's family.
