Robbie Magasiva has paid tribute to his brother Pua in a social media post after Pua's passing over last weekend. 

Robbie took to Instagram, posting an old photo of Pua, seemingly from the pair's childhood, with the caption: "My heart is broken I miss you so much Pua we all do. Rest now. I love you Pua"


The Magasiva whānau are holding a private funeral service in Wellington this afternoon.


Pua's death shocked many across not only Aotearoa, but the world, especially amongst the acting community. Pua's former colleague at Shortland Street Sally Martin posted a poem dedicated to him to her Instagram account today, alongside photos of the pair.
