In Memory of Samisoni aka BIG MAKK
Samisoni Koroitamudu, a young up and coming DJ from the Central Florida area lost his life, along with 2 friends, in a car accident early August 29, 2016.
This fund has been setup to help cover the funeral costs his family will incur.
More details to come.
My name is Michael Lambie and I am a friend of Sam's. I met sam roughly 8 years ago when I moved to Orlando. I met Sam through his longtime friend and fellow DJ Nikkolas Mohess (ATM).
I was immediately taken back by Sam as I noticed his attitude, demeanor and the overall way he carried himself stood out from others.
As I grew to know Sam better, I noticed his true humbleness. Sam was the most selfless person, always making it a point to greet everyone with a smile, and in my case the largest and best hug ever.
It's hard to talk about Sam without talking about his music. Sam's ability to spread his love and kindness was his talent and he did that through music.
The goal of this GoFundMe is to make sure his family does not suffer financially from losing their son.
Thank you for your help.
Thank you all for you support in the form of donations. Hundreds of people showed up today for Sam's funeral as a true testament to his character.
Until next time Sam.
I wanted to update everyone to provide some transparency to the fund. As of this morning, the beneficiary of this fund has been turned over to Samisoni's mother to be immediately put to use to lay our friend to rest.
It's amazing what we can accomplish when a lot of people come together to give because of 1 persons big heart.
Thank you all for your donations. This is truly unbelieveable.
I wanted to update you with another way you can help. I have become aware that some people would prefer to support Sam and his family in other ways than just monetary donation. If you would like to know more information about upcoming memorial services, private donations, where to send flowers, etc... You can email ShakeNBassOrlando@gmail.com. This email is the most direct way to get in contact with Dave, Khan, Aless and the rest of those closest to Sam and his mom.
Thank you again for all of your love for Sam and his family.

I cry for his inner circle. So many people do not understand why this could possibly happen to such a good and gentle person.
This community has amazed me in the last 24 hours. Personally, for me, this page has been a part of my healing process. I spent the better part of yesterday reading tweets, posts, articles and even songs about Sam. I would turn to this page to reinforce my "everything is going to be ok, somehow" thought. I thank you all for that.
As I write this we are $200 shy of my 4th goal set for this fund at $20,000. Thank you all. You are all fam.
Keep dancing and let music guide your healing.
