A’o le Tumua o Asiata na to ane mai ia TUIATUA FONOTI, o lea UA FALEFA ai TUMUA ia Asiata, ona o le su’ega Malo a Asiata ia ‘TUIATUA TUIA’ANA GATOAITELE VAETAMASOALI’I FONOTI”, o le TUPU TAFA’IFA O SAMOA, lea ua tofiaina Asiata, o le a falefa Tumua ia te oe.

A positive encouragement by chief Asiata: “O le laulalo a Asiata”, the intercession of Asiata, referring to chief Asiata gave advise(good fearless advise) to King Fonoti in a song, and he was given special honors and rights as a result and appointed as the “fourth Tumua” of Samoa.
