New Zealand singer's heartwarming music video tribute to 'legend' King Homeboy

Beloved New Zealander Te Ariki Toki - better known as King Homeboy - is the subject of a beautiful music video tribute following his incredible act of generosity last week.

Mr Toki melted New Zealand's hearts last Friday after opting to regift a $10,000 package from 1Day.co.nz to KidsCan, after naming 11 New Zealand towns or cities in 10 seconds in the show's 9 in 10 competition.

The moment of brazen kindness went viral, with a Givealittle page set up to raise him $10,000 and numerous sponsors reaching out to The AM Show to donate replacement prizes to him.

But perhaps among the most touching expressions of awe in the week since comes courtesy of New Zealand singer-songwriter Huz, who's known King Homeboy for many years.

The video - for Huz's song 'Highest Heights' - follows King Homeboy on his typical journey from Mangere into the city, and "celebrates his love of dance, b-boy, and busking in our great city".

It was recorded before King Homeboy became a Kiwi icon just over a week ago.

"We'd always loved his night busking across the city," Huz told Newshub. "He truly is a beautiful soul."

On Friday, King Homeboy broke down as he was given thousands of dollars' worth of prizes from a number of different sponsors on The AM Show. All of the gifts are in Mr Toki's name, so he can't donate them to anyone else.

Host Duncan Garner told him the prizes came about because of "the generous spirit you are, and the generous donation you gave".
