"Robbie Magasiva is one of the most down-to-earth celebrities we’ve ever dealt with. He went above and beyond his contractual obligations to make our event a memorable one for our guests, and was engaging and charming throughout. I’m sure the internet’s content has doubled from all the photographs that were taken and posted with him on the night! A definite crowd puller and pleaser!"
