"My name is Paikea and I come from a long line of chiefs", almost all of us know the words, we can see the young Keisha Castle-Hughes riding double on her koros bike as they come down the hill, but be honest, could you imagine US superstar Kehlani chilling and watching one of New Zealand's greatest films Whale Rider?

Well, spoiler alert, Kehlani actually knows about Whale Rider, even better, she found herself rocking what she calls the Paikea haircut!

Paikea haircut in New Zealand = whalest of all time. 🐋

Kehlani was in New Zealand for her SweetSexySavage world tour, and we're guessing it was only appropriate that she rocked the haircut from our youngest Oscar nominee while she threw down at the Logan Campbell center!

Sufficed to say, we're obsessed now!
