Viki Mana

Meleika Gesa-Fatafehi AKA Vika Mana, is a storyteller from the Zagareb and Dauareb tribes from Mer Island, Torres Strait and Fahefa Tonga. They perform poetry, write criticism, breathe life into worlds and lastly, can share a joke or two, max. That’s because they only know exactly two jokes. In 2019, Meleika won a place in The Next Chapter Scheme awarded by the Wheeler Centre. In 2020, Vika was shortlisted for the Nakata Brophy prize. Vika is also apart of the FAMILI collective, rapping about Afros and abolition.
