Leon Wharekura is an accomplished singer, entertainer and songwriter and is well respected by all in the New Zealand music and entertainment industry. Hamilton-born Leon’s career began in the late eighties, while under the mentoring and guidance of NZ legends such as entertainer/comedian Billy T James and singer Dalvanius Prime.

Hailing from Tuwharetoa/Ngati Raukawa roots, with a background in Maori Cultural performance, it was not until 1983 that Rewa branched out as a solo songstress, by winning her very first talent quest, which was judged by the late Prince Tui Teka. This turned out to be a lucky break for Rewa, as the Prince then asked her to perform on both of his upcoming television specials. With this experience under her belt, that same year she was a contestant in the TVNZ talent production of 'Star Quest'. Rewa has never looked back!
