1)
The Otara Millionaires Club were formed in 1993 by Phil Fuemana after his earlier bands, “Houseparty” and “Fuemana”. His younger brother Pauly joined soon after and they recorded two tracks for producer Alan Jansson’s Urban Pacifica collection Proud.

After a falling out with his brother, Pauly Fuemana approached and Jansson and he suggested that Fuemana keep the initials as a name, and thereafter Fuemana and Jansson were, in effect, OMC. Whilst Fuemana fronted the project and took it around the world, the music was created by both of them. Fuemana was the frontman and played some of the original instrumentation. Jansson co-wrote all the tracks and arranged and produced the duo’s albums. Sina Siapaia (stage name “Sina”or “Sister Sina”) was the female backing vocalist on “How Bizarre” and other tracks on the debut album of the same title. [1]

How Bizarre (1995-1997)
Signed to Simon Grigg’s huh! label, OMC released the single “How Bizarre” in New Zealand in late 1995. It was an immediate smash hit even without a video, reaching number one in early 1996 and staying there for three weeks. It sold over 35,000 copies (3½ times platinum certification), a figure not exceeded in New Zealand. That same year, “How Bizarre” went to number one in Australia for five weeks, sold over 150,000 singles, and was certified as a platinum single.
