We love our Kiwi musicians and take offence when another country tries to claim them as their own – think Crowded House, Split Enz and Dragon.

Until recently, we have been left wide open with critically acclaimed Wellington band The Phoenix Foundation.

One of their members, Will Ricketts - born in London but who moved to New Zealand as a two-year-old – has been denied citizenship by the Department of Internal Affairs.

After a story by 3 News, the minister reviewed his case and New Zealand can now claim The Phoenix Foundation as 100 percent Kiwi.

Watch the video for Dan Parker’s report.
